Banned Xbox 360 what are the downsides?

Looking at getting a banned console (approx 7 days from today) as the Wanted thread got locked (but thats another story)

Can i use the console just to play games offline and will the game save be ok?

I have googled this and all the info i get is below

Your Banned 360:
* Cannot go on Xbox Live
* Cannot install games to the HDD
* Cannot use Windows Media Centre extender
* Cannot be used to get achievements from backups without corrupting your profile

You cannot do anything about this, short of buying a new 360

So are there any other downsides to owning a banned console apart from the ones listed above

I'd read the same as you imortal, so was going to create a new profile to use on one.
Would be good if that wasn't needed :thumbsup:

everything works apart from you wont be able to connect to the internet.

- basicly unplug the ethernet cable or wirelss adpator and thats what a banned xbox looks like.

From what ive read is that you can use the hdd on any other xbox but all your saves and games preloaded wont work making a hdd useless on a banned console not to sure if effects the memory card?

- So what caused my ban?
There are MANY theories as to what is causing so many consoles to get banned this time, however as of yet there is nothing concrete, just a lot of circumstantial evidence and speculation. Please do not add to this, a full investigation is under-way.

c4eva, the main guy behind iXtreme, had this to say:
< +c4eva> fw itself not detectable
< +c4eva> suspect they are going hard on warez releases and incorrect use of abgx!

Speculation is its firmware related hebnce why so many hit

Im also looking at getting a banned console as a spare.....

My current console has already got xbox live on it, can I put the harddrive from that into a banned console and get achivements from a genuine game without my profile being damaged at all and then still play live on when I put it back into the origanal console?

No swapping between the banned and unbanned will corrupt your tag and saves

Yes but if you then put it in an unbanned console that save will be corrupted when you try to use it again

You can still play online but via a dedicated server. A member told me that there was around 100 people playing mw2.

Yeh. You use the system link and a program on the computer that makes the internet seem like a lan.

If more people spread the word about this i reckon they will easily get 1000 players for mw2.

Well its been arround since the original xbox so I would have thought it would be a bit more well known.

You really are super tight!

I'm not totally sure, but I think playing some DivX files would also be a problem...

When I'm signed into Live, I can play them, when I'm not connected, I can't. Might be another thing to consider if you're thinking of having it as a media center.

Just found this........Think it's written by Will Smith

Now, this is a story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I liked to take a minute
get ready to Jive
I'll tell you how Microsoft banned me from Live

In west Philadelphia born and raised
On the Xbox was where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out maxin' on my bedroom floor
And shootin some n00bs on call of duty 4
When a couple of guys
They were up to no good
Started flashin Liteons in my neighborhood
I backed up one little game but then I got scared
but C4EVA says it's safe so I really don't care

Forza 3 was due and when it came near
I played the damn thing early 'cause I'd waited all year
If anything I can say this game was rare
But I thought 'Nah forget it' - 'I got stealth Firmware!'

I turned on my xbox about 8 or 9
And I hit the little button that said "connect to live"
I looked at my screen
And I shouted abuse
"Banned for violation of the terms of use
