No Console Piracy Here...<trying to look innocent>

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/8354166.stm

Assuming there are 20 million XBox users this would account for 3% of the population. I don't know... with all the talk about IW move away from dedicated servers for PC due to piracy; you would think that this number of those who have been CAUGHT would be much lower.

Cause we all know that Piracy and Hacking doesn't happen on consoles right?

So what dos this mean? Well Microsoft is taking a direct concern toward these players and hopefully trying to nip it int he bud before getting out of hand. But wouldn't 3% already be out of hand? Maybe the risks of losing the online privilege the console community has kept cheating quite since this seems pretty significant.

I can only assume the same arguments coming toward the PC community that pirating is bad and we are losing games and functionality b/c of it. SO why do the console gamers get away with it...

Oh yeah!

About Lockeone of us since 11:35 PM on 10.20.2009

I am a PC gamer. I have a water cool completely custom case that I hand crafted from raw materials and PC DIY parts. The case is one of the smallest 3 120mm radiator cases that exists. I have a modest computer inside. The non-water cooling parts cost about $650 dollars and I upgrade the system about every 3 years and the video card about every 2 years.

I have been gaming all my life. I started with simple LCD portable games and we eventually got an Atari which I played the dickens out of. NES was too played until my fingers had blisters. I bought a PC in 1988 and have not looked back since (well except to play karaoke with my ex-wife). Games like Civilization, Battle of Britain, Ultima IV, Leisure Suit Larry, and Wing Commander took my heart.

Sytems I have owned:
Atari 2600
Atari 7200
Nintendo NES
X-Box
PC
Wii

I am also an avid technical scuba diver and have logged dives at 170' deep. I play paintball, softball, football, and all sorts of table tops games that include DnD and Axis and Allies. I am also in the process of writing my own table top RPG and have spent three years working on it. I have a woodworking shop and can make furniture, picture frames and the like.

I have a degree in Industrial Design. This makes me a designer of products, architectural way finding, POP displays, and user interfaces. I have also taught design at the college level.
