Gaming Industry’s War on Pirates Catches NYers

The Bronx resident, Angel Rodriguez, for example, was recently caught up in a Microsoft "ban wave," rendering his XBox 360 incapable of accessing the online version of Modern Warfare 2 through the device.  He had been playing pirated games through an illicit Web site which he didn't provide to am New York when the publication spoke with him.

Microsoft was able to block users like Rodriguez through the work of IPCybercrime.com, a company that tracks down illegal game sellers.
