California man goes to court for modifying Xbox 360

• .

In a landmark case, one gamer is being taken to court for installing chips in Xbox consoles enabling users to play illegally obtained games.

In the first trial of its kind, Matthew Crippen, 29, is being taken to court today for modifying Xbox 360s. Crippen was arrested in August 2009 after he was paid to install chips in consoles in order for users to play pirated games.

Way to frame the conversation. Mod chips are for a lot more than just enabling piracy. I love how the press almost unconsciously couches every article in language which favors the state's position.
