Xbox Cheating?

This story has greatly upset me  xbox cheater

The video is heart breaking....because not only am I a gamer myself but this could be my son some day and I would hate for the one thing he loves the most to turn on him. I have to ask myself what I would do if it was us. Gaming is a way of life for my family, both me and the daddy play, the kids have their own accts. We don't get the benefit of always going out to places because of Racer sensory issues. So we are homebound by choice and I don't think many people get that about us. We don't go to the movies or out to eat and I haven't dreamed about Disneyland the way I used to. Our trip to Knotts killed that years ago. So we play video games, we watch movies on Netflix and I have to say that I love my life. There are some days that maybe I would cave and whine about not going anywhere but then I look around at how close my kids are because of what me and the daddy have made for them at home. A place where we all feel safe and comfortable. I'm not looking for the dirty looks lol because they only come from the teens.

Anyways getting off track here.

I feel bad for this family, and I'm going to submit a letter to xbox about my feelings towards it, because regardless of their statement. I've dealt with their bullshit, hell I got my acct suspended. But I also know that they are full of shit when they say they found a legit cheater. Someone ratted this kid out thats the way it goes with Microsoft. They do nothing until something is reported to them. I've played with cheaters and know for a fact that nothing has ever happened to them......so I'd like to know WTF microsoft? What did this kid do to deserve this treatment?

I am so with you on this one!! I'm glad you wrote about it. I've seen you post about gaming before and I respect that you know more about it than me. I'm glad you are writing the letter. I think the more written protests they hear the better. But really, what I think should happen from my perspective is that the family should sue Microsoft for damaging their son's reputation (defamation). That's because a gi-normous entity like Microsoft, flicks us off complaints like dust but when they are hit in the pocketbook - that's when they pay attention!! I know the family is in Washington State. Hope they find someone there to help them. LOVE that you addressed this!!

They show his gamertag in the video, I'm tempted to send a msg in hopes his mom reads it. I want her to know she's not alone.

Ive read about this story on twitter, but never read it. How sad. So because "noone can possibly finish these games so quickly" they assume he is a cheater? I dont know much about gaming, but this breaks my heart for the little boy.

Well its been a interesting night to say the least. And to cap it off they think that this is his mother admitting her cheated http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/107371-Autistic-Xbox-Players-Mother-Admits-He-Cheated

Makes no sense to me and I'm a gamer. And child would have jumped at the chance to get recon armor, autism or not. And for Microsoft to pass it off by giving him a month free and a new acct is like a slap in the face, None of that is going to make a difference to that child.
