Xbox 360 Update Stops Pirate Call of Duty Players

A recent update to the Xbox 360 seemed innocent enough, restoring a simple boot to disc option that for whatever reason was eliminated a while back. At least, that’s what we were told that’s all it did.

In actuality, those with illegal copies of Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty Black Ops can no longer play the software they decided not to buy. You get what you pay for, and now you get nothing for nothing.

The best part is that every update could now be designed with blocking pirates out of major titles. If they want to continue to play online, they have to update, and by doing so, they could be screwed. The end result is a better community, and (hopefully) making a few of those who find it okay to take something for free turn themselves around.
