A Washington man made almost half a million dollars selling Xbox 360s modified to play pirated games, the FBI alleges, but here's the kicker—he did so while he was a Microsoft contractor, and even after he was sued by Activision for pirating its games.P Shawn Guse, 27, of Bothell, Wash., five years ago paid Activision $100,000 to settle claims he pirated Call of Duty 3 on Wii and Xbox 360, which we reported back in 2008. A federal investigation of his Xbox 360 modding, which began in 2011, has resulted in just a single misdemeanor charge of copyright crime.
