Microsoft Can Remotely Disable Your Xbox One

Yesterday the internet was filled with leaked video of the beta for the Gears Of War remake on the Xbox One, now understandably when you enter into a beta, you do so under a Non Disclosure Agreement(NDA), but some people leak video and images of beta’s for a little bit of that internet epeen life and understandably this pisses off the companies that trust gamers with these Beta’s and yes of course as expected, Microsoft are quite angry and have suspended the Xbox Live accounts of those responsible and rendered their Xbox Ones unusable.


This was revealed on Kotaku, who received an email regarding the subject, here is a small quote from that:

Now, new wording is about to reach the community regarding this particular event. The nature of the leak having had occurred through Xbox One, actually also went against the Microsoft EULA, which is agreed upon when creating an Xbox LIVE account, or any other type of Microsoft account. This being said, as per that agreement with the testers in fault, Microsoft also permanently disabled their Xbox LIVE accounts (as well as other suspected accounts present on their Xbox One kits) and temporarily blocked all of their Xbox One privileges – meaning that for a period of time which Microsoft decides on depending on the severity of the offense, their Xbox One is entirely unusable.
