    Yep mine has. C'est la vie though really, was bound to happen eventually

    Not yet (fingers crossed). I keep checking it half expecting the ban.

    BTW, the ban wave has been going for a few weeks now, not just yesterday.

    What are you plans, are you going to try and sell it, or keep it?

    My Bad. :oops:

    Im not at home atm its xlink kai try googling until i get bk

    I take it that it's only chipped consoles thats being banned and not unmodded ones, It's a price you should expect to pay if you get your machine chipped I usually get alot of my consoles chipped but didn't with my 360 because I knew I was going to play online and thought that MS would catch up with people in the end but atleast you can still play story mode on all the games you get surely thats still worth keeping your console for?? and even getting a new one just for online play.

    No, it hasn't been banned either. :whistling:

    None of our consoles are chipped, does that make us sad lol.

    whats the benifits of getting them chipped?

    loads of people banned for playing the game before release on non-modded consoles. none of mine banned so far but no quite a few who have, including 2 who've never modded the console

    Free games and you tend to get them weeks before they hit the shops in most cases.

    I thought xbconnect.com/ was more popular?

    though it only supports these for the 360

    Call of Duty 3
    Farcry Instincts Predator (360)
    Perfect Dark Zero
    Project Gotham Racing 3
    Saints Row
    Splinter Cell: Double Agent
    Quake 4

    i got banned on sat not really bothered as i have another xbox and dont play online tho

    i dont really understand the logic in banning after all people pay to play online unlike ps3 so microsoft are cutting their nose off in my opinion lot of lost revenue from live now

    all the people will have to buy non banned machines for live, hence they can probably sell another 600,000 units....

    It's why they don't ban everyone, they would lose to much money with microsoft points and live subscription. There is a theory that says the people who spend more money are less likely to get banned. Have you bought many MS Points ?

    if you buy a banned console cant you contact m$ and get it un banned if its not chipped as you are a new owner?

    banning yesterday? it's been going on for a couple of weeks, just because the bcc have only just caught up on the news doesn't make it new

    Mines not been done yet, but i haven't gone online

    I've bought nothing of Live, apart from the 12 month gold and I'm not banned. That blows that theory out the water a bit

    Not necessarily, you don't know that your not getting banned yet, neither do I, just a theory nobody knows (for now)

    Once a console is banned there is no recourse of action whatsoever to get it unbanned.

    never bought any but to be honest pretty much ev1 with a modded xbox will be banned shortly the way the bans are going out ms so only a small number of machines have been banned liars

    you can unban it but you need another unmodded xbox to do it and its pretty poinless as youd prob soon get another ban anyway

    Unfortunately the bro plays online on mine though

    you buy a faulty console for 20 quid that hadnt been banned

    i was just pointing out it is possible to unban a console you said it wasnt

    None of my 360 owning friends have modded their console. What a well behaved bunch we are

    Most of the titles i'm interested in playing rely on their online functionality so it's not really worth the risk.

    I would buy a banned box if anyone is selling

    More sales for MS. When its banned you go out and buy a new one if you want to play online.

    Microsoft lose money on every xbox and none of the money of used xbox's/games go's to them, they dont overely benefit just looks good on paper for them having X amount of sales
