We could all calculate that the timing of Microsoft’s banning of “modified” consoles was very calculated with some of the years biggest releases, Modern Warfare 2 being the biggest. And because we have little if any sympathy for these banned people as they are pirating, we dont really care and see it as they got what was coming to them.
Well now it seems a top law firm, Abington IP, who specialize in consumer class actions is taking the fight back to Microsoft. An investigation is currently being conducted regarding business practices of Microsoft with respect to its recent cancellation of certain modified Xbox consoles for use with Xbox Live. The law firm posted this on their website:
If you are an Xbox Live subscriber, had your modified Xbox console banned from Xbox Live, were not refunded a prorated sum for the time left on your subscription, and would like to participate in a class action against Microsoft, please submit your information below.
