Banned Microsoft Xbox 360 consoles getting a reprieve?

Banned Microsoft Xbox 360 consoles getting a reprieve?

If you have been around SlashGear for a few years, you might recall back in 2007 when we first started to talk about Microsoft banning Xbox 360 consoles from the Xbox Live network for violating the terms of service with hacks of all sorts.

New Consoles Will Make Game Prices Reach $100, Danny Bilson Says

Depending on where you live, you may already be paying $100, or slightly more, for videogames. And, if you're someone who always wants to get their hands on the "epic" or "limited" or "legendary" editions of games, then you're probably accustomed to paying (close to) $100 or more for a game. Of course, in that latter case, you're getting (usually) much more than just the game.

Microsoft Sells 1.9 Million Consoles in December, Sees Year-Over-Year Growth

Microsoft Sells 1.9 Million Consoles in December, Sees Year-Over-Year Growth

Earlier today, we reported that Microsoft was seeing strong sales of its home videogame console, the Xbox 360. So strong, in fact, that Larry Hryb (or Major Nelson, if you prefer) was told that Microsoft had literally "run out" of the consoles. With stock supposedly tight in January and February as well, Major Nelson was quick to note that if they didn't get first place in console sales from the NPD group with their results today, it would be due to strong sales, and not the opposite. Microsoft has released the NPD's highlight reel for the 360, and sure enough, Microsoft's console is doing very well.

Nintendo Sells 1.5 Million Consoles Over Black Friday Week

Nintendo Sells 1.5 Million Consoles Over Black Friday Week

While Black Friday is over and done with, and we're knee-deep in the savings that come with Cyber Monday, it looks like Nintendo made a killing off the Black Friday week. They sold plenty of consoles, which include members of the DS family, as well as the Wii home console. They sold enough, in fact, that the company feels like a formal press release is the right thing to do.
