You will not be able to play on live with copied games.

if you do your console will be banned.

TBH i really don't think its worth it any more because there is too much risk.

I had mine modded and managed to avoid it from getting banned.
If you need help let me know and i will post links to all the information you need.

Thousands of people have been banned from xbox live for having there console chipped.

out of interest what do people think is worth more? a modded one or an unmodded one?

i havent played my online for months and was considering modding it for the sake of it or maybe swapping it with someone who had a modded/banned one

You would be better off trading it for a banned one although modded consoles, even banned ones, can go for quite a bit on ebay.

If you mainly want the 360 for online gaming, don't mod it.

x box 360 is full of issues still so if you mod it and then it breaks you cannot get microsoft to fix it, too big a risk I think.

so in theory if i mod it and just use originals to play online that would work? or does it notice your console is different?

Yes it would, also you CAN play copy games on live, make sure ypu have the latest stealth patch for the game and latestes Iextreme firmwire

Well you much accept the risk of getting banned if you play on live. with backed up games

@strike- do you play on live with copied games then?

Yes, why?

Just curious

What drive do you have?

If you look at the Xbox forums (xbox-scene.com), there are people getting banned even with the latest iextreme stealth firmware... It is a gamble, as no-one is really sure exactly how MS do it yet.
Saying that, I remain unbanned but I never play copied games on line.
