want a cheap modded 360 to go alongside my elite,want to put the spare up stairs so i can play when the mrs is watching tv.

just a few questions for potential sellers,if it is chipped or modded is it banned from LIVE??? plus if it is banned can i still play my saves on this from the ELITE as most games get updated on live and i'm not sure if this affects the game save.

hey vinyl, ok lets start:
if its chipped/modded then it wont be banned from live but eventually will be. some people it takes a matter of hours some i've known to have had for a year without trouble. if you swap the hdd from unit to unit then it will load saves and all the updates from the hdd as if it was in the elite without trouble. my best bet would be to use the modded console as a tester rig, to see what games you do and dont like and if ya wanna play on live then buy the original game.
#2
Saves will still work, yeah..
#3
Consoles dont get banned seperately , they get banned together. For example i got 3 friends who also have theres modded so if we get banned together then other people will get banned to if they are online. Theres no such thing as individually getting banned.

Also about the saves yes you can still play em.

Regarding modding the banning can happen at anytime but a few people think ms may release a checker along with the dashboard update so its safe not to play for the first 24 hours and let other people find out or you can see if other people get banned.
#4
a cheap modded one would be a non hdmi blow up every five minutes job.

Your best bet is do what i did, dont search for falcon or benq along with 360, just create a message that you can paste in; asking the manufacture date, power supply wattage and lot number (you can go further but those are easy for the not knowing people out there to check), this way you will find many many (for now) of the newest falcon BenQ systems out there that you can then modify yourself, at worst you will get a zephyr BenQ which isnt too much of a bad thing but that is only if you are not checking it all out.

I picked up two full arcade systems, one had 3 games and a 20gb hard drive too for less than 200 for both!

one was 11 march, other was 1st of april, both are pretty much the newest BenQ Falcons you will get, lite-ons took over in mid-late april, so make your window from august to march to be safe, but anything last year if it has a 175w psu then its a falcon.

Then its just a case of checking [url]www.360drives.com[/url] with the info you get from the sellers and buying them up, they go cheap as they are being sold by people that are just selling 360's and not people selling them knowing that they are falcon benq's and trying to get 150-200 for just the bloomin console!!!!!!

oh dear, i just gave away my secret, doh! lol i have 4 falcon benq's in total now guys :-D
(two unmodded for now for use on live, two modded for all the games i dont wish to play on live, niether are banned or have even been plugged into an ethernet cable since being modded but we will see when the update comes out..mine side by side, as too are my sons)

say I play a game on my modes console then play it on my consloe I use on live will my live account get banned???

accounts dont get banned, it's the 360 itself by stopping the serial number from connecting to live.

It's all speculation to be honnest, there is no true way to not get banned. I take all the precautions with no excuses! I wouldnt use copied games on one console if you intend to use the same hard drive on your live console, maybe it logs on the hard drive somewhere if it knows a copy is in use, i dont know..

I just know i only used fully stealthed games, the modded ones have never been on the net and were fine before, and all have their own hard drives. Was even thinking of flashing the modded ones back to the original just for the update, im precautious but so have many other people been. Fact is, i have seperate consoles for copies and live as although i do everything i can to not get it banned, i know it may still happen, so i wont lose the ability to go on live but will still have a machine that will play copies banned or not..
#7
well I may not mod then as I only want to have one gamertag and don't want it banned.
#8
No dont worry it will be fine i know someone who used to have the 360 when it came out and hes using the same hard drive still when his old old xbox got banned.

Dont worry its fine.
#9
Nothing will appen to the gamertag. Its just the motherboard which gets banned.
#10
I may only keep the modded one off live and just transfer the gamertag between them
#11
i sacrificed my gamertag, though it is higher on the non live modded one as i have more games, my live one was obviously the main kiddie at one point and is still the one people see. hey, it's only a "how big is your" hmm wont go on to say that but you get what i mean
#12
yeh u can do that but that would a the pee lol. If its iextreme its ok. But dont play on the updates happen. If people get banned then just reflash to normal state :) or wait for the new iextreme to come out.
#13
lol, just do what mars does and dont give a hoot, use your modded one on live for everything, it wont get banned.......................................................................................
#14
if u got a spare 360 u got nuffin to worry about and replacements dont cost much + it seems like u wont use it on live anyways?
#15
this is all a bit confusing to me LOL,I had my orignal xbox chipped and turned off the chip when I went on live with an offical game which was easy and less hassle LOL
#16
So GoW2 who's gonna play it early
#17
nah u cant do tht with 360's

trust me theres hardly any risk with the hard drive/gamertag part.
#18
exactly, though if you find an already banned one you will get it cheaper and saves you the hastle of worrying
#19
well if one of u guys is free one night maybe u can talk to me on msn about my choices.
#20
Isn't it just the eeprom or something like that of the 360 console that gets banned. therefore doesn't affect the hard drive nor the gamertag... I've been going strong now for a year with the same console. Glad i'm saving my precious discs from getting scratched

lol, hi dude, welcome to the modders corner!:whistling:

hehe i wont play it on live early quickest way to get banned that, but will probably buy it as it's definatly a game i'd play on live..

I unlike most others still buy the few games i want to play online hence what the non modded 360 is for:-D

i think you are right m8.. oh an those a-ones are damn expensive to replace lol
#24
I would say if your elite is flashable get that flashed, then if it gets banned, then buy another 360 console only just for playing on live♠
#25
ok look, if you have 1 modded and 1 unmodded. you can use the same gamertag and hdd on both without risk. if you use the modded console online it could get the modded console banned from going on live but not from playing games offline. it will not affect your unmodded in any shape or form

not one reported case of a gamertag being banned dude, dont think they go that far, but i didnt want to take the risk of something being stored on the hard drive that was used on a modded console, actually getting the non modded console banned as the info is on that one when they check.. paranoia yes but like i said, i take every precaution

I had the first one on pc and loved it, it has some quirky features to fable 2 some which i'm yet to have experience like the 2 player co-op mode over live (2 heroes) or normal co-op (one plays as your companion the dog).

graphics are good, but could be better, bit blocky in areas. enemies seem overly easy to defeat was playing it for a few hours never got killed slayed a good few bugs and bandits. got married had a kid, popped a few other women...

hasn't really grabbed me though

dont know dude, most people have reported that they have been banned, others just seem immune lol, get your elite modded unless you bought an extended warrenty or such. if you get banned then buy a cheap arcade to play on live

hehe, cool, i will get it no doubt but not sure its a buyer for me, is it only playable on live or is the single player available without connecting?
