Has anybody been banned following the dashboard update ?

Do not play any games post fable/sims 3 as they will have security check 2.5 and will result in a ban. There are rumours black ops doesnt have this which is strange, but not confirmed yet

someone i know has said that new games (sims/fable 3 onwards) do an "ap25" check and will check your firmware themselves so even an offline console is at risk.

the new dash has been confirmed to have new security features

is yours legit ry?

did you get banned? lol

Apparently new games will force you to update aswell, with it being bundled on the DVD.

Very much against this kind of piracy, purely due to the nature of the gaming industry now a days.. Rampant piracy has hit the PC market like mad, causing allot of studios to move more predominantly onto console... Or just port (badly) and lessen the investment in the PC platform.. Throwing on top a lack of dedicated server support, so online multiplayer can't be exploited.

The amount of money required to develop a game now a days, if you're a medium sized studio.. You really can't afford to have such a large number of people ripping off and not purchasing your game(s).

I'd imagine that a work around / patch will be out soon however, they canny beggers..

it was always inevitable that there would be a ban wave close to the release of black ops.
For it to become undetectable again there will need to be new firmware, new software to rip disks and new software to verify games.

I had the dashboard beta and it sucked it involved constant updating

Probably because it's a beta!

I like the new dash, a lot smoother and quicker than the old one. I like how you can sign into live messenger on it and another location at the same time.
