Microsoft uses Halo 2 to fuck chipped consoles
    #3350958 - 11/12/04 12:16 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Quote:

Microsoft appears to be using its smash "Halo 2" game as a vehicle to crack down on mod chips and other hacks of its Xbox video game console.

Hundreds of Xbox owners have reported in online forums in recent days that they were banned from Xbox Live, Microsoft's online gaming service, after trying to play "Halo 2" online with a modified console.

A Microsoft representative would not specify which additional security measures, if any, have been added to Xbox Live around the "Halo 2" launch. "Microsoft listens carefully to the Xbox Live community and reserves the right to take steps necessary to preserve the integrity of the user experience," the representative said in a statement. "Our goal is to provide our users with secure, consistent and fair online game play. Users are not permitted to manipulate the system to the detriment of others."




Fucking Nazi Pigs, Microsoft is one of the many heads of Satan's diseased penis.

I thought all XBOX live games did that?

I remember installing a switch in a friends' xbox so he could switch off the modchip when going on XBOX live.

Shouldn't they still have to notify you before putting in stupid shit like that?

Obviously you're the consumer and after buying the product you reserve the right to do whatever you want with your product.

Maybe Microsoft sees themselves as a world power, but I don't and will not be buying an X-Box ever.  Gamecube/PS2 are golden.  Microsoft can't compete with their limited game variety.  All of their games seem the same, and Unreal 2004 fucking stomps the pants off of Halo 2 anyway.  Upgrade your PC instead of buying an Xbox, get yourself a cable connection and blow some shit up on Unreal :smile:

this is fuckin retarded.... you hack microsoft's product and then get pissed off when they try to prevent people from doing it? Any geek should know better than to try and play a modded xbox on xbox live.... it's called common sense.

Microsoft is within it's rights to do that and I might have done the same in their place. Don't be a whiny little bitch.

Oh no, you can't steal the game and cheat on multiplayer. How terrible.

Why did you cross-post this with science & tech? Mods?

Microsoft is an evil corporation (Bill Gates = Lucifer).

But Bungie put a lot of hard work into Halo 2, and I think it's a great game (though not as revolutionary as I hoped). The online experience rocks my world even though I don't own it.

You can always get MGS 3, GTA SA, Metroid Prime 2, and Paper Mario.

First off, I don't own an Xbox or Halo 2.

It just fucking pisses me off that using a mod chip, which has a range of perfectly legal, justifiable applications like running home-made games or using an Xbox to run a media uplink to a tv, suddenly means you can't use Xbox live just because Microsoft decides that a other people pirating games means you are a criminal.

How would you feel if Microsoft wrote into all their new software that anyone with a cd-rw drive wouldn't be able to run the software because they might pirate it?

I pirate all of Microsoft's software and there games. I have NEVER once in my life paid for software that Microsoft has made. I have purchased hardware 1 mouse and one router made by Microsoft.

I also own a xbox and its chipped with a x2b lite. I rent and copy games and feel good doing it because I'm ripping Microsoft off. If you have a modded xbox with a switch to disable it you will already have the knowledge to not get busted.

I simple have a really big HDD and my stock hard drive. I got a kit to install 2 hard drives, there is a switch to choose what hard drive you want to boot from. well if I disable the mod chip and boot from the stock hard drive Microsoft will not see the chip or all the other dashboards files.

If I boot with the large Hard drive I have to have my mod chip enabled and I can not play live.

Fuck Microsoft.

HAPPY FUCKING HOLIDAYS!

I've got no love for MS either, but the correct thing to do is to switch to another OS, another console, etc. and boycott them. Why are you buying their hardware if you hate them so much? Why not another router or mouse? By using/stealing their products you are still supporting their monopoly on market share, and by stealing, you are raising the prices and mandating annoying copy protection for those who WANT to pay.

Stealing from someone you hate is still wrong, and it's not really hurting MS, just their paying customers.

That is non-sensical;

If you steal software from MS, they lose revenue, they raise their prices.

If you use another OS, MS love revenue, they raise their prices.

Explain why using other software as appose to stealing MS software benefits MS's paying customers.

"Microsoft is an evil corporation (Bill Gates = Lucifer)."

Whats so wrong with bill gates? Oh no a genius makes a shit load of money cause he has a bunch of great ideas that make things like the shroomery possible. Dam him for being rich after working his ass off. Sure he may have been envolved in some hostel takeovers, some thievery, and of course his monopoly, but hey, not everyones perfect. Besides the guys donating more than 75% of his wealth to charity when he dies, which I might say is a handsome sum of money. I still pirate his shit, including my operating system, but thats cause Im broke. Hate the game not the playa hehe.

Anyway if you went through the work of installing a mod chip, is it really that hard to install a switcher box?
