Xbox 360

Last week, Microsoft revealed it was ramping up its efforts to crackdown on Xbox 360 modders by issuing widespread console bans. Today, The Guardian reports that somewhere between 600,000 and 1 million consoles have been banned so far.

Microsoft had previously said that a “small percentage” of 360 users have been affected by the bans, but without any actual numbers, it was hard to really grasp just how significant the screw tightening really was. These new figures also reveal just how expansive the modding community truly is, even though it only identifies the users that have been caught.

Clearly, Microsoft is going to have a very difficult time ever stopping modders entirely, but obviously it’s a fight that the company is more than willing to continue waging for the foreseeable future.
