The company further said in the statement, “All consumers should know that piracy is illegal and modifying their Xbox 360 console violates the Xbox Live terms of use, will void their warranty and result in a ban from Xbox Live.”

The “Terms of Use” agreement of Xbox Live and Windows games’ as of September 2008 states: “only authorized software and hardware to access the Service,” and that they agree that their software and hardware “have not been modified in any unauthorized way … and that we have the right to send data, applications or other content to any software or hardware that you are using to access the Service for the express purpose of detecting an unauthorized modification.”

In the first image it is seen US Soldier is on high alert as if going to act immediately and there are two Apache Helicopters behind him in the sky.

The second image seems that the US soldier is looking like the SCAR-H. Also notice the helicopter flying and the white mountains.

Don’t start guessing of any underwater war with the third pic. It is just an intro.

The fourth image seems as if the US soldier is with modified ACR. Next image shows British SAS dropped on the soil of Russia. The last image is SEALs in Combat Rubber Raiding Craft (CRRC).

Modern Warfare 2 is second most wanted on Xbox 360

April 30th, 2009

GamePlan, a research group, gives a data that Halo 3: ODST is the most wanted Xbox 360 title. Modern Warfare 2 in the second place according to their research.

Both, the ODST and the Modern Warfare 2 are sequels in famed franchises, but unlike others on the list represent nearly a quarter of all Xbox 360 gamers. Isn’t it impressive.

mw2

Apart from ODST and MW2, the next in the race is Madden NFL ’10. It is on the third position having only 15% expressing intent on purchasing if compared with close to 25% of Microsoft gamers planning an ODST or MW2 purchase.

The best part of MW2 is that the intent to purchase and pre-order tallies are nearly even in comparison to a much wider discrepancy among future ODST gamers. Is it understandable?

The answer of this may be that either the Halo fans are lazy bums who know ODST would not be in short supply come fall, or else they are waiting for further more juicy details from the secretive Bungie Studios about the title before deciding if the investment is absolutely worth it.

GamePlan collected the data from 1,000 gamers every week across numerous demographics from March to April this year.
