    I can just see a whole slew of people purchasing a second Xbox, now that prices have dropped (both for resold modded ones and new retail ones). "Best of both worlds" kind of thing. Which is really too bad...

    Me, I'm sticking with a legit 360. The few games I actually want for it, I'll happily buy.

    I wonder how places like GameStop are handling this new influx of bad hardware?

    @pragtastic,
    theyr'e supposed to check to see if the systems have been tampered with first, if the warranty sticker is intact. If not they can not accept it. If they stck with their already existing rule there should be no problem getting a used one from them.

    You can mod without breaking that sticker.

    Just another ploy by MS to get MORE sales to keep ahead of PS3!!!

    They saw that they were about to loose the console war by the end of next year so they Ban 1 million people that NOW have to BUY another Xbox..

    I'm not up on the 360 hardware, but is there no way to "un-mod" your 360 once you've done the deed?

    Could you single player play games on consoles that have been banned? If I can pick one up for 50$ I might go for it. I wanna play l4d.

    The only problem with that is: L4D as a single player experience gets old VERY quickly. L4D is meant to be played with people.

    Even if I had a banned 360 and couldn't sell it I'd buy another one before a PS3. What a worthless brick that thing is!

    PS3's are pretty amazing, actually. The problem is that there isn't the online support that Xbox Live brings. If you don't care to play games online... PS3 is amazing. Especially when it comes with a blue ray. If you want online support though... xbox is the way to go. However, like the article states... if you don't want online support... just get a mod'd one... way cheaper than a ps3.

    To AlexDeGruven and mike.

    It is very possible to Un-ban an xbox 360. I have done it. The only problem is that it's around a 5 hour job and you must flash the nand with details from a console which hasn't been banned.

    Technically I could buy 100 or these banned consoles, Un-ban them and sell them for full price. Unfortunately old habbits die hard and as soon as one person is banned they would all get banned.

    In fact, they're not losing to the PS3 in any metric that matters to Microsoft.

    Once again the little console that could is left out of the "big boys" discussion. The Wii continues to out sell both other consoles by a large margin and guess who Sony and Microsoft are copying at E3 not something the other company produced but Nintendo.

    I sure wish people would stop being ignorant, but then I guess the world wouldn't be as happy as it is now.
