A friend at work has been offered a 360, which he has been told has been modified and is banned from XBOX live.

I presume it has flashed firmware, but what does "Banned from XBOX Live" actually mean in terms of using the console. Like me he wants his for his 6 year old son so wont be allowing him to play online, what else does being banned impact ?

this is very difficult as you have to get the motherboard key and replace it with a new drive key, and isnt as easy as just swapping the drive, you would have to pay a professional for it.

Thanks guys.

I have an unmodded 360 myself - will he be able to download demos etc or is it a complete loss of access to any services.

i.e. he can play games locally on the XBOX, but not against anyone online, and he cannot doownload any online expansions for games etc ?

If thats the case I dont think it will bother him (but a good bargaining chip to reduce the price further!)

no nothing, it wont let you sign into live at all.

You dont need live to play games locally (or via LAN if you want i believe.) so it just relates to the LIVE services
