I just read this article on Digg. Someone who scored a copy of Halo 3 was stupid enough to try and play it on Xbox Live. There is still 19 days before Halo 3 is even available at retail. He could have just played the single player game until after the release date. Obviously his console has been banned, so now in the future he will have to get a new 360 in order to use xbox live. I may have a modded console, but I know that I shouldn’t let it “phone home” in its current state.
