First Sony started to get serious with modders/hackers, now Microsoft is getting serious. I can't seem to figure out which is worse between the two; Sony suing someone for modding their console or Microsoft banning all those that have been infected with mods. I personally think that both are idiotic. This is what Sony was thinking, 'Since Microsoft is making so much more money than us and has such a better online community, even though they pay for their service, why don't we go sue someone so we can pocket some cash and lose our reputation?' This is what Microsoft was thinking, 'Since Sony has such a bad reputation for suing people now, why don't we ban innocent gamers that join infected lobbies? Then after that maybe we will have a terrible reputation like Sony!' Now what does the community have to say about this?​

Don't compare what Microsoft did with what Sony did. Microsoft always does this, its not new.

Suing=/=Banning

Microsoft is banning cheaters I don't see an anything wrong with that. However Sony suing people just trying to do what they want with their consoles and not affecting anyone is else ridiculous, if Sony just banned cheaters then I would not see a problem with that either.

Nothing new, just another ban wave.. Sony f***ed over 77 million of their customers rendering them helpless and unable to access PSN.

Microsoft don't ****ing sue you lol. We usually just Console ban, Permanently ban or just issue a 2 week cheating issue. We don't go around Suing people and stuff. Microsoft do this all the time. No-one complains but Sony are free so therefore they shouldn't need to Sue people. Anyway. Comparing Microsoft and Sony is a bad comparison.

No is the answer to your question.
They are just doing another ban wave which will only affect the people who have broken their terms of service.

This ban wave is not like the usual ones. They are banning innocent people that join into games that are fully infected.

The last major ban wave was after the release of MW2, and it targeted those who used modified disk drives. This wave is a bit different from the last ban wave. The length usually varies. The last one went for a while and banned anyone who had signed on with a modded disk drive. My best guess is that the wave will end once MW2 is patched.

I agree with this aswell. I was not aware that M$ ban people for joining infected lobbies accidentally, i mean there is no way of determining whether an accident or not so m$ should not ban people for that.
