The new Xbox 360 dashboard to incorporate functions for the upcoming Kinect device will launch this November, but a hacking team who have gained access to the new dashboard beta has run some tests and made a very welcoming discovery. Within the new update it has been revealed that firmware information for the consoles disc drive and its connection to Xbox Live can be monitored. This would send information to Microsoft and allow for greater monitoring of modded drives that play pirated games, alterations of drive firmware would then result in an instant console ban.

What does this mean for you?
For me, I'm a bit disturbed considering my console has hacked firmware, but what about you?
