360 Sales Figures
 

 
Recently Microsoft have been "bigging up" the amount of sales it has had from the 360, yet from what we have been told the figures aren't as good as first expected.
 
Over the last two weeks Microsoft has been releasing details which pointed to an increase in sales thanks to GTA IV. However, the latest figures released by MS show that they were only able to move around 188,000 consoles in the US during April. 188,000 is not bad a bad result but is no means a good result considering the release of the new Grand Theft Auto, those figures are looking rather low.

I think you don't see the half of them ;)

Seriously though, the bigger and more popular a site becomes the more you see rubbish like that

Depends on the scam. I doubt they get huge amounts of business from all the spamming, but it doesn't cost them much in time, effort, or money.

We should be able to get this sorted with the next update of vbulletin. Once that's been implemented, people will be asked questions only humans can answer in order to register.

tbh we should just block the ip ranges for the countries that do this sh*t.

Looks like we have a happy little spam bot on now. Just saw it spam 7 topics (and counting). Hope it calms down, I was getting excited about early morning posts.

Reported one of its posts, but all his posts are ads for something i don't even have the font for.

Edit: It seems to have given up at 20 meaningless posts. How gentlemanly...

I assumed it might be, but it's just question marks for me. Should probably download a language pack.
