From Xbox-scene.com
I've gotten a few messages and seen some forum threads pop up on console bannings so I thought I'd post and let folks know what's up. In our our continued effort to keep gameplay safe and secure for our community of more than 14 million members, Microsoft has taken action against a small percentage of Xbox 360 consoles that have been illegally modified in order to play pirated games. You should know that modifying your Xbox 360 console is also a violation of the Xbox LIVE terms of use, will void your warranty and result in a ban from Xbox LIVE. The health of the video game business depends on customers paying for the genuine products and services they receive, both from manufacturers and the local companies that support them. We will continue to employ and bolster anti-piracy security measures to counter piracy in the gaming industry and improve security in the Xbox LIVE community

Wah, I hacked my console to play pirated games and now MS have banned me, wah.


*ducks down to avoid the forthcoming barrage from the HUKD pirates trying to defend their illegal actions*

Didn't say anything about the reports of unmodded consoles being banned which is getting more common with the better methods of stealthing modified consoles. :pirate:

I treat my modded one like it's banned anyway, it's never had an ethernet cable plugged in since it was done, I have a un-modded one for the few games i actually buy to play online (Guitar Hero 3, Gears of War 2, Fifa 09 etc..) but for all the others that i'd like to try, or know im not interested in playing online, they're either rented / borrowed n copied or downloaded, :pirate:

Saved enough money after two games to get me an unmodded one for LIVE use..:thumbsup:

i feel sorry for all you guys that pirate all your games which then makes MS charge more for everyone else because you might be getting banned off live!!!
why do HUKd's allow threads like this up? someone lets everyone know how to avoid being caught doing illigal stuff and that fine....you try to relist something your selling after 6 days instead of 7 and you get a 24hour ban....stupid!

Shame they can't brick the consoles as well as banning them!

Surely not if you already own a copy.

If you already own a genuine copy, why not play that on Live. The amount of people that play fradulent copy of games which they have acquired from the tinternet for their sexbox is atrocious.

I rest my case.!!

One per household would sound reasonable. But other than that. No.

So has everyone who has flashed their 360s been banned or only some?
#15
I think microsoft have every right to do this. I used to have a modded console, which got banned and rrod. Karma i guess.

II now have a new console and buy every one of my games. It makes me angry that microsoft dont do enough to stop pirates, i spend my hard earned money to buy there games, when i could easily just download it and not support them.
Yeh im kinda being a hypocrite, but i reliased the error of my ways :P

Half the machines that have been banned from xbox live have been banned because the person has played a region free game that wasn't available in their region with their HDD attached, xbox scan your HDD when you connect to live just to see what you have been doing and check on the games you are playing. I have mates who are playing online with flashed machines, If you are unlucky enough to be banned check on the ban i have read about bans ranging from couple of mouths to life time.:thumbsup:

The funny thing is everyone cries about peolple pirating 360 games but 95% of the complainers are frequent music downloaders.
