thats why its not worth it if you are on live :thumbsup:

Could be gears 2 thats causing it i heard, the price you pay i suppose

Banned

Heard about this, seems to have kicked in with GOW 2

It could be to do with the new switch over to the new layout? isnt that due in a week?

Thanks alot for the heads up...Not sure if its gears as I've been on it for the past few days + was on it about an hour ago, not banned either.

Just speculating here but i'd imagine they "released" gears 2 or cod 5 to the scene with some kind of flag that stays on your system - seems the simplest way to ban loads of people

Well I always download the copys from "all stars" as they seem to be reliable, would they let out something thatn will crush all our hearts?

depends what their source is i suppose, not really their fault as such

my mates been baned by playing midnight club

My console doesn't seem to be banned, I accidentally put CoD5 in a few days ago but took it out as soon as I noticed...

Banned

Not worth the risk...

Not worth the risk...



totally, games can be had for (almost) buttons these days, why risk it?

Reading over at X-S it looks like Gears 2 or CoD5 could be the culprit - possible code inside a 'rogue' release.

My 360 is the only unmodded console I own (well, other than my Sega Master System). I'm planning on modding it up and getting with the times so better keep my eye on this one...

if banned for playing cod5 now its not out till friday me thinks so maybe this is why people are getting banned ??i have the new dash update but it does not have the avtars as the official release will have but it has the rip to harddive and that is very nice and a lot more quite for the drive.

Good Job Im a law abiding citizen then isnt it. I'm owning on gears 2 - One of the best games ive ever played. 615G on it now. Not even tried to get achievements to purposefully. Achievements to easy in my opinion. But still.. all those with modded consoles - DOOM ON YOU :P

Ohhhh I'm too scared to turn my 360 on now.

[edit]

Not banned, epic :).

was that a hint of sarcasm in your post there :whistling:

Not really I knew that if it was banned I'd be getting an earful in the morning. It would give me an excuse to buy a new Xbox though considering mine is literally a jet engine even at the dashboard.

I have 2 xboxes, 1 for "testing" games and one for playing the games that I deem worthy of my money online. Just use a memory card to store my Gamertag and swap it over, easier than swapping hard drives all the time.

Why do you need to Test games when 99% of the games are available for … Why do you need to Test games when 99% of the games are available for free to download the demo version and "Test" on Xbox live?, Good to see MS getting rid of them, the more revenue they get from genuine buyers the more the devs and MS are encouraged to make even more quality games for the 360.And all this carp about "Ah but if wouldn't have brought the game anyway so it makes no difference" is bull, If someone sees a friend etc playing a game for free it encourages them to do the same, spreads like a disease...



It's bought!

Some of the cod 5 releases have not been stealth patched so that's probaby why some people are getting banned, i'm not going to chance playing that onlne, i'll stick to single player and i'll just buy it if i really want to but i'm happy with cod4 online at the moment

So you are admitting software piracy here?

what's it to you?:?

a lot of people have said they play back up games

Was that a yes or no?
Just because a lot people say they play backup games does not make it right.
Just wanting to see how blatent a pirate you are, if indeed you are one.

As this is an open forum and he posted I thought I would ask a question regarding the post. It is their decision whether to reply or not. Whether this has anything to "do" with me is not in the equation.

lol, this is great, the diversionary tactic of incompetence - avoid answering a direct question by being a repetitive Muppet.

Look its easy you play pirate games so what, don't be a mouse about it, I do too.

ZOMG.......... that was was difficult

so i'm a muppet? no need for that really

:thumbsup:
Well done Alfonse. A great reply. Rep left

I always wonder why people admit they "backup" games but shy away from the tag of pirate. It seems that the label "pirate" is a very negative term whereas people seem happy to boast about the playing of backups.

No need for piracy but you still do it:roll:

I think you'll find I posted "being a repetitive muppet" not that you are a muppet, only that you're acting one etc etc.

oh right so putting repetetive in front of it is ok, ah well i won't go down to your level of name calling etc etc

I was going to flash my 360...

When you say "banned" do you mean u just get banned from your console loging onto Xbox live?
if thats the case its a bit of a **** ban to be honest...

nothing stopping you from buying another console for near enough £100.
and keeping your "chipped" console and still beening able to play games on it ? ...just not online of course..

lol The operative word is "being" only showing that at the time in question you were acting a muppet - immature/silly/stupid/obtuse etc etc, like when someone is angry, its usually for a limited period not forever..........:whistling::roll::thumbsup::w00t:
