IS it actually illegal to mod your xbox etc? I agree with what your saying midlandscomics, seems like all posts containing any mention of soft/hard modding any console should be deleted, or none. Either way it has to be a little bit more consitent.

yeah i asked this question too lol as i thought it was hypocritical imho, but then they will prob just ban all such sales:roll:

Banned

i think the dstt cards where stopped because of the problems with fake cards being sold and the agro it caused on the boards, hopefully they will relook at this

with regard to a softmodded wii needed a few extra files to allow backup games, so does a DSTT card.
Having these is not illigal but using it to play games you do not own is. there was a famous court case about 25 years ago about recording programs off the TV and the court said they they can do it. So i would say this is the same thing (sort of)

why did u bring dis up for , now this stuf may get banned too

What everyone will have to realise is that even if something is legal, this site, its owners and the people that run it, have the right to stop the sales of any items they wish. If they say no 360 sales (modded or not), then there is no 360 sales plain and simple. It may annoy some people but it is ultimatly up to them to allow or dissallow any legal items to be traded, bought or sold here.

I also made my own thread, i didnt see this one.

DudeyGeeza, your right, they can do whatever they want, but it doesnt make sense.

Nothing that i was asking for is illegal.

Alrighty guys Thanks for all of your opinions.

Both of the points mentioned above are a massive part in the decision not to allow console cards. I'm sure most of you will be able to remember issues in FS where members have sold fake cards.. part of that problem for us is whether this was done innocently, or whether they were chancing their arm and hoping to get away with it. We then have the issue of cards being listed as "loaded" which wouldn't be allowed for obvious reasons.


Whether everyone thinks it's a grey area or not isn't really anything to do with it to be honest, the fact is we looked at all the issues that had arisen as a result of allowing the sale of console cards, and we made a collective decision to ban them.
This does not affect anything we do currently allow in FS forum (eg softmod etc)
Decisions regarding all items which are restricted are made independently, and aren't based on our opinion of another product.

So to clarify, was the maystars post ok or not? Xbox memory cards are not capable of holding pirated software etc being only 8mb in size :lol:
