Given that Microsoft has told us that it doesn't comment
on figures of banned users from Xbox Live, it's remarkable that the figure is now being stated as a round one million people.
This has risen from the speculative 600,000 previously quoted.
The respectable outlet, Information Week
, however, states that Microsoft, "this week booted as many as 1 million players from its Xbox Live gaming service due to the company's belief that they modified their consoles to play games illegally downloaded from file sharing sites."
No actual source for the figure is cited.
