    A decision on whether or not Microsoft's Xbox 360 game console should be banned from being imported into the US has been delayed. Reuters reports that the full panel of the US International Trade Commission has sent the case back to its judge for reconsideration. That could put off a decision in the case by months.

    David Shaw, a judge for the ITC, had previously ruled in April that the Xbox 360 had infringed on four patents owned by Motorola regarding the use of H.264 video encoding. In May, Judge Shaw recommended that the ITC place a ban on importing the 4 GB and 250 GB versions of the Xbox 360 S consoles into the US as a consequence of the console violating Motorola's patents.

    The story gives no reasons while the full ITC board would send the case back to Judge Shaw. The board was previously expected to make a final decision on the Xbox 360 patent case in August. Earlier this month, a number of companies, including Apple, Cisco, HP, Nokia, Intel and Activision, wrote letters to the ITC requesting the organization not ban the Xbox 360 from being imported to the US.

    So if im reading this correct this means we won't be able to buy anymore Xbox's in Usa unless they make a new submodel? You know after stores in the Us runs out of Xbox 360's stock

    I have been asking around and some say it is true but most say they think it is just a rumor.
