Continuing its banning ways, Microsoft is now banning players for exploit a glitch that's found in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. 
Console maker Microsoft claims bans are necessary to keep the gameplay fair, but should it ban gamers for the mistake of programmers?



You modified your Xbox 360 console?  Chances are you've been banned.  And to add to your dismay, your console's hard drive has been bricked, your console now corrupts saves, and you lost the privilege to use your media extender.  Tough luck, buy a new console says Microsoft.

But what if you just were playing a game you'd just purchased -- legally -- on your unmodified Xbox 360 and you were slapped with a ban for a programmer's mistake?  That's the exact scenario facing scores of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 gamers.

While exact numbers are unclear, Microsoft has another brewing storm on its hands after launching the latest round in its ongoing banfest.

 

Sony will not be banning PS3 gamers who use the glitch.   [More...] [Comments...]
