I really hope they catch these people and throw their ass in jail. I don't even have an XBOX, but jeez, this is becoming more and more commonplace. Whether it is a game such as Halo 2 or HL2 or the new OS. The amount of money that this malicious behavior costs can't be calculated. All because some loser asshole wants to feel important.
Yeah, this sort of sucks because now I have to be wary of jackasses posting subject lines in forums that spoil the game or whatever, but overall this isn't as bad as if it were a PC game. You can't play a pirated XBox game without modding your console, so that eliminates the vast, vast majority of XBox owners right there. Compare this to Doom 3, where all you need to do is download and install it.
24 days. The avoid-the-spoiler gauntlet has begun.
I'm pretty sure the problems that causes are deliberately coded in and of the "it dicks with your stats so you can't cheat your way to 100% completion" variety, rather than of the preventing you saving at all nature.
