Those things are always funny.

CoD and Halo just get filled up with (mostly American) quims who's parents want to keep tabs on their internet usage or who aren't old enough to have a credit card for two days and then things just return back to normal again.

EXACTLY what I was thinking.



are people still playing on modified xbox's online? isn't it pointless as sooner or later you'll get the online ban?

Good riddance to bad rubbish!!
If people wish to flash their consoles then fine but don't expect to use LIVE!

**EDIT**
This is also a Freebie and not a Deal.

Are people actually complaining about being banned for using a flashed console?

Poor babies.

lol easy tiger...

It's a trap to get all those modded Xboxs online so they can detect them over the space of a weekend and ban them

Well a 360 using silver could still be banned, only logging in with silver won't make much difference where that area is concerned.

is there a way to connect my xbox to my laptop then running the net through that

Yes. Search "xbox 360 internet connection sharing" on Google - there's lots of guides out there. Might be some video guides on Youtube too.

I have it working but it can be a pain in the **** to set up.

Internet Connection Sharing.

As oldman said though, you're better off out of it, just buy a router instead.

Aye sweet trade

Banned

There's always one, isn't there.

In your opinion, which means diddly squat to me or anyone mature who isn't bothered about console wars.

and online is free 24/7



For now. $ony have already started charging for some "premium" services and they will eventually be charging for online play, thats been on the cards for a while. I also believe Nintendo are also starting to charge for online play regarding the Wii. So it's happening and $ony cannot stand by and what the competition reap the rewards.

So you are only going to be able to use this "argument", if you can call it that, for a little while. If I was an Xbox fanboy I would suggest you looked at this link but because I'm not, I won't.

In regards to Tom P 1980, Playstation already offer a premium service called Playstation Network Plus and for the near future (next 6 -9 months guaranteed) won't be taking away the free online service (PSN) provided to users.

Please do your research
Many thanks.

Learn to read.

I said $ony had already started doing premium service, and that whilst the online play was not a premium just yet it will be on it's way, given that both of their competitors are doing this $ony can only sit back for so long. I never gave a definite time scale. The fact that the "premium service is a go when it was all going to be free is just one more step towards paying for online play.
