It looks like Microsoft has started a new wave of Xbox Live bannings against naughty console modders, according to a report.

The banning campaign is aimed squarely at dirty pirates who have modified their DVD firmware or DVD+/-R DL discs - specifically those using Toshiba-Samsung and Hitachi-LG drives.

According to our own clued-up Del Boy, these modified drives allow Xbox 360 owners to play copied games, which obviously isn't very good news for the platform holder.

As always Microsoft bans console serial numbers from its online service, but Xbox Live accounts are free to go about their non-naughty business on another consoles. It's only 300 quid down the toilet for them then. Oh well...
