Eek, not sure why your buying second hand from there full stop.

I can see loads of banned ones getting traded in at game and the like-no way will they have the time to check if they are capable of online play.

Already got a ps3! you fanboy :?

That sucks.
But it´s the main reason why I tell people who wanna buy a 360
to NOT buy a used one. Just not worth the hassle....

Well this has totally put me off pre owned, When i got it home it had the power block but not the power lead, how stupid could they be

Also checked the warrenty sticker and its totally not an offical ms one, its just a silver with red writing saying " void if removed" haha

Brilliant

I even asked them in the shop if they had been checked to see if they was banned before sale and they said yes...


:thinking: it amazes me

Yeah even if the sticker was intact and original, that doesn´t mean it´s never been opened or tampered with
as people can remove it and put it back on without damaging it.
They also can be bought on ebay!
Spend a little more and buy a new one. It´s absolutely worth it

Buy mine
