Dunno, sounds like it's going to do more harm than good.

Wouldn't a good portion of those 360s be banned for cheating online? Or were all of these pirated/modded 360s?

^Sounds like a smart idea

It was suggested on that forum that you'd just get banned again if you went on Live, so I'm not sure what this does? Were banned consoles bricked?

I'm sure most of the modded consoles will be re-banned quick but other unbanned consoles may belong to people that won't cheat and will buy their games this time?

Yea someone go confirm.......
