I don't understand why MS hates modders so much. Just think, how many of you own more than one xbox just to mod. If it wern't for modding most people wouldn't have over 2. We are giving MS tons of money. What's their beef?

Um, no son.
Most of the software used is illegal because it's Copyrighted by MS. Plus yes, we all own more than one xbox, atleast I did, but they don't make jack shit off selling consoles, they lose money. So yea, they hate us.

technically, MS doesnt really lose $$ off piracy unless the game was made by MS - or at least as much as the company that made it does.

MS loses money off selling the xbox because they hope they'll make it back through games.

Yes MS makes money off games produced by other companies because the companies have to have the right to sell the game for the xbox.

So they hate us because we are pirating games, not because of what we do to the xbox.
