XBL bannings already getting worked around

Well, we knew it would happen eventually, but modders are already finding exploits to get themselves around Microsoft’s recent banning spree. Utilizing firmware modifications, those sick and corrupt mod fiends are claiming to be able to make their deviant Xbox 360 consoles undetectable by Microsoft’s all-seeing eye of bannihilation.

The workaround uses a firmware upgrade for the TS-H943 DVD drives, which you use to play backups of Xbox 360 software and apparently renders your console’s less than legal changes invisible … for now.

The game of Microsoft/modder one-upmanship begins then, almost like a round of Command & Conquer, except not as much fun, having no missile silos, and not being anything like Command & Conquer.
