However they raise an interesting point, that Microsoft timed this so to maximise what subscriptions they could get before mass bans.
For those chucked off Xbox Live, and weren't "refunded a prorated sum for the time left on your subscription", ambulance chasers at Abington IP want you to join their class action suit against the mighty Microsoft and their banhammer doomsday, reports .
"As has been reported widely in the media, tens of thousands of Xbox owners have had their modified Xbox consoles banned from Microsoft's online gaming service Xbox Live," begins Abington IP's blurb on their courtroom crusade.
"This "convenient" timing may have resulted in more Xbox Live subscription revenues for Microsoft than it would have generated had these Xbox console bans taken place at some time before the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Halo 3: ODST."
"Additionally, sales of both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (published by Activision) and Halo 3: ODST (published by Microsoft Game Studios) would likely have been greatly diminished had the Xbox console ban occurred prior to the release of these games."
Currently third-party manufacturer Datel is most unhappy with Microsoft for blanket banning all their goodies from the Xbox 360 console, of which the platform holder attributes to creating a more secure and safe environment for users. Picked a side?
