What kind of "kit"? (Score: 1)

Additionally, Microsoft has taken matters in to its own hands, removing access to their consoles entirely. Microsoft permanently disabled their Xbox LIVE accounts (as well as other suspected accounts present on their Xbox One kits) and temporarily blocked all of their Xbox One privileges – meaning that for a period of time which Microsoft decides on depending on the severity of the offense, their Xbox One is entirely unusable.
If this was a retail unit then it is an overreach. But if "kit" refers to a dev/debug kit, then I can see how an NDA violation would get their access cut.

Agreed. Not interested in owning anything from that company (OS, system, or games), and they've done bad things themselves, but I'd have to say they are in the right with this move. If you agree to test with the understanding that you can't reveal secrets, then leak, you screwed up. There are consequences, and in this case your system and accounts are hosed.
