The bad news is ( I imagine) that by the time the court case is all done and processed the Xbox 720 will probably be out.

What makes Microsoft think they can do this? I'm sure there's some kind of paperwork that Datel has with Microsoft that won't allow this.

Microsoft needs to realize that you can't ban something that is better/cheaper than their own products, and something that 50,000 people rely on every time they boot up their 360. No one pays more for anything anymore just because it's an "official Microsoft product" they're gonna get the best, which in this case, is Datel.

Are Xbox 360 gamers still using "Memory Cards"?

I mean they can store it on USB drive or other memory cards and can take these everywhere...

yes but some people dont have the money for a hd so a 2 gig card for $40.00 bucks is nice

the funny thing is the piracy part as far as i now most people who hack the 360 us the coff coff propietary hd from microsnot

becouse games take alot of space so i dont see were microsnot gets the piracy angle

Microsnot! I think that is a new one. Just when you thought you heard every possible variation of Microsoft a new one turns up.

This, combined with the massive banning on XBL is Microsoft's way of showing control on their platform. It's like what Apple just did with Psystar.

Look, I have no problem with fighting piracy, and keeping hackers and cheaters off of the XBL servers. However, cutting out third party storage isn't cool. It would be no more difficult to put a pirated game on Microsoft's memory card then it would Datal's, with the exception that Datal's is larger.
