The case against two California game store owners who allegedly sold modified Xbox's that played pirated games now face up to 17 years in prison. Cnet reports: "Two owners of a Hollywood video game store, as well as a third man, were indicted by a federal grand jury Thursday for modifying Xbox video game consoles to disable copy protection, and preloading copyrighted games onto the machines for sale... If convicted, the store owners could face up to 17 years in federal prison."

Wasn't modification a key selling point to a large demographic of Xbox owners? Hmmm.
