    UK ban wave has already started.

    Some people flashed last week, have only played one game, not even a new release and have been banned.

    I haven't yet :thumbsup:

    M8 phoned me and said he had been banned as well, hadn't played a game early but i'm not sure if the guy he get's his games off checks for the stealth patch.

    me and my mate got banned last thursday

    from xbox scene:

    - 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:
    fw itself not detectable
    suspect they are going hard on warez releases and incorrect use of abgx!

    He also added the following:
    just to let you know that im looking into the current ban wave. I am currently running several brand new xboxs on live! These xboxs are in various configs. All are running ixtreme 1.61
    One is running original discs, another is running on xbl (no discs) , another is running a backup from my region!
    until tests are completed, no eta on liteon fw!

    didnt ask for any in the first place :thumbsup:

    This is great, watching the pirates squirm lol

    I can understand to a certain degree flashing a console to download and play games, simply because the price of retail vesions is stupidly expensive, but why the hell would anyone use a flashed xbox 360 with a downloaded game over xbox live? It just seems like you're asking for trouble.

    I can afford games, the question is, do I want to pay for them?

    The reason for downloading is the same reason I download films, if I like it' i'll pay for it.

    This is why my copy of MW2 is coming from shopto.

    and i have several Blu Ray's on pre-order:thumbsup:

    Tell it to the judge

    Yes, and I know the risks.

    If I get banned I'll just order a new console.

    But that's not the way it works I'm afraid. There's a certain agreement between producer and consumer and you're not really playing by the rules.

    Since when did I ask for your opinion?
    Please, enlighten me?

    if you get banned does the console ID get recorded and banned from live, or is it the gamertag/ subscription?

    Where did you sell it? Looking to sell my non-flashed, original Pro when the Elite arrives.

    lets face facts 99% of flashed boxes are for the sole purpose of the owner downloading games and never paying for them

    Once your gamertag is flagged do you have increased chances of being banned at a later date ? and for all the people complaining about pirated games i really dont care much for your opinion, I used to buy retail games, but got ****** when the multi-billion dollar companys used cheap flimsy disks and I had to pay out for new ones because of them. I didn't mistreat disks, just used them alot. You can talk about your morals but honestly they might lose a couple of million because of pirates, you really think that makes a difference to the billions they make ? They just want you to believe that it impacts later releases, and jobs get loss, they lose fractions of what they make to pirates.

    I assume you're not old enough to have entered the world of work and experienced what it's like to spend time producing something.

    Maybe then you'd have a higher regard for people who do and not download their stuff without paying for it.

    Multi-billion dollar companies employ people who earn a fairly average wage, and they're the ones who suffer.

    I've played a lot of games too - no scratches on my disks.

    I have seen those reinforced disks they put kids movies on which get handled a lot. Maybe you should see if they produce those for games too:thumbsup:

    How funny :? Why are you even here, i asked about people getting banned not opinions on flashed xbox's

    Type fifa 09 broken disk on google and you will get millions upon millions of complaints about the quality of the disks. If you want to waste money away on greedy game producers who try convince you pirates are making them lose a ton when really all they are saying is "we want more" go ahead, whilst I enjoy it on better things

    Always amusing listening to them trying to justify their stealing

    oohhhh funny that, my sons fifa 09 didnt last long, the disc cracked, he swore he didnt mis treat it, i thought he was pulling a fast one

    I bought FIFA 09, played it a fair amount - no problems with my disk.

    It's nice to have the money to buy these games and also on the 'better things' - maybe I should be kinder to those who aren't as fortunate, but I don't think it excuses using something without paying for it.

    mines still not banned but i haven't been online this week to check, still got anoter cnsole to play online anyway

    my m8 got banned and they corrupted his gamertag, so when ever he logs onto his banned console it corrupts, so he then has to retrieve it from xbox live on his vanilla 360

    they corrupt data on the hard drive and also disable the abilty to install any games on the hdd on the banned console

    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.
