You probably remember hearing about the mass bannings Microsoft has been dealing out to gamers using modded Xbox 360. On his blog Xbox Live's Major Nelson commented on the topic, saying:

As you may have read online, we’ve been actively banning consoles from Xbox LIVE that have been modified to play pirated games. Our commitment to combat piracy and support safer and more secure gameplay for the more than 20 million members of our Xbox LIVE community remains a top priority. All consumers should know that piracy is illegal, and that modifying their Xbox 360 console to play pirated discs, violates the Xbox LIVE terms of use, will void their warranty and result in a ban from Xbox LIVE. The health of the video game business depends on customers paying for the genuine products and services they receive from manufacturers, retailers, and the third parties that support them.  This would also be a good time to remind you that the warranty on an Xbox 360 console is not transferrable and if you purchase a used console that has been previously banned, you will not be able to connect to Xbox LIVE.

Modern Warfare 2 Leaderboards Reset

First, you might be wondering why the leaderboards for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 are being reset when the game hasn't even been released yet. The reason for this is is that some people were able to get their hands on an early or leaked copy of the game. This is obviously unfair to gamers who haven't been able to obtain the game, giving those who have it an early headstart on the leaderboards. Well fear no more.
