Xbox Abandonment issues.
So I'm only writing about this because it's a funny article. It seems the fallout from the million xbox units being banned from xbox live has resulted in a virtual flood of Xboxes being resold through various online marketplaces such as Ebay.
It's speculated that the offenders were modding their consoles for the release of Modern Warfare 2, which only adds onto the already huge controversy surrounding the game. However, many gamers are pointing to a more sinister motive; Which is Microsoft is banning a million to make millions more when people turn around and purchase brand new 360s this holiday season. We'll find out if that's actually the truth in about a month or so. However, As with every other measure, this will probably do nothing to solve the issue of piracy on the system.
