Please can someone explain the fuss with modded controllers, I like the sound of them but is it breaking the "rules"?

Do you get in trouble for using them?

If you read the contracts you agreed to you would already know the answer to this.

 

You can use RAPID FIRE controllers. You can NOT use MODDED STOCK controllers. There is a HORI PAD that you can buy and use and that would not be violating the XBL Terms of Service.

Using modded controllers (even the ones that its OK to use) is unsporting and gives people an unfair advantage in MP games. I do not think any modded controllers should be allowed at all.

Why can't people just play using a regular control pad?, then if they win or lose its down to their skill or a bit of luck.
I would rather play honestly and lose than use one of these pads to make myself feel like I am a gaming god.

If the OK ones are going to be allowed I think there needs to be controls in place in certain games to make them less effective.

That responsibility would fall to the GAME DEVELOPER. Some care and do implement fire rate caps while others do not. And I agree that anyone who uses them is unsporting and not showing any true skill.

Technically no modded controller is legal. Any controller that affects the natural way in which a game functions is 'illegal'. Turtle beach headsets are illegal because they use the sound that is already being outputted to its full potential. Modded controllers affect the natural coding of the game and change the way the game plays. If, after review, it is found that you are 'cheating' then you can face bans no matter what people tell you about 'legal controllers'.

Are you serious?  Turtle Beaches are illegal?  They are completely legal and I would like to see you try to get a kid banned for using a headset that he bought at Gamestop.
