    New reports indicate that the fresh wave of MS bans on modified consoles has resulted in systems not only being banned from LIVE but also - removing the ability to install games to the HDD, forbidding the use of Windows Media Centre extender and not allowing the retrieval of achievements from backups without corrupting profiles!

    <blockquote>So, in summary:
    Your Banned 360:
    * Cannot go on Xbox Live
    * Cannot install games to the HDD
    * Cannot use Windows Media Centre extender
    * Cannot be used to get achievements from backups without corrupting your profile</blockquote>

      Seems like Microsoft likes to show people how much of a **** they are. "Yeah yknow what well not just ban them to get online but lets **** up their HDD, Microsoft and what not."

      A friend bought and played forza 3 on october 22nd, release date in europe was 23rd, his xbox was banned, it was a whole new one, unflashed system. Customer service didn't admit the ban for one week than told him it was beacause he played a game before the release date, achievements proving it... :eek:

      As mentionned, profile corrupted, no use of hdd nor media player

      get a good x3 headset and they wont have to hear anything but the game...

      Blocks out all noice and is great... or if your jamming them your probably playing loud enough you cant hear it anyways.
      people went years without hdd installs.. people will live...

      free games vs sound of a disk spinning... hummmmmmmmm... what will people choose???

      the people who were banned were banned because they illegally played copied on xbox live. m$ didnt **** up the hard drive, they made it so you cant use that drive on another console without reformatting it.
      because the console is modified, it allows people to hack the games to get achievements they didnt earn.

      the fact that this has gone on for the past 3 years should show to you m$ was being nice. its just now they lay on a heavy ban hammer and of course idiots like yourself are whining about it.

      So if I get a console band. Then play say forza 3 and get a few achievements. Then put my hard drive on my unflashed 360. The achievements won't add or my 360 profile will screw up and can't play online again?

      you go buy forza 3 play on a unflashed console and you can get all the achievements you want. with the same hdd.

      But if your playing a backup on a banned console... then nope...

      Basically they are now tying profiles to the banned machines so that profile cant be ported over to another unbanned machine. Pretty smart actually, since most pirates I know care more about their precious achievements than the actual console itself. So now its basically get banned....start over.

      And it greatly reduces the chances of the failbox actually failing.... or scratching those games that you spent 60 dollars on.

      Hte to sound like a fanboy, but at this point the killer of xbox360 will not be sony, it will not be the wii, and it will not be back of good games nor horse power. It will be the hatered people seem to have for this company and its system.

      What's strange is people who have been banned on the 360 are moving to the ps3, instead of getting another 360 and buying legits. The question is, they are ok with paying for the ps3 and legit games, when not ok with doing the same on the xbox360.

      This shows how badly MS has fallen in public view. Also the fact that ps3 online is free and live isn't must have a lot to do with it also. Then again the more people move to PSN the quicker it becomes a pay service. (another sony promise lost).

      So if I take my hdd off my unmodded 360, go over to a friends house and stick it on his modified console, play a game pre-retail, get achievments, go home and stick that same hdd on my unmodded console will they ban me?

      I got banned this past week but the only game I played early was halo odst(scene release for usa region). I guess there is a long process before they ban you. I expected the ban to come, but much sooner.

      I was considering buying the gold live service ( or what ever they call it) for Christmas. MS just rejected the only possible revenue they could have gotten from me because I am not buying another xbox. If I ever want to do online gaming i'm gonna buy a ps3 f**k MS. this **** is gonna comeback to haunt them cause its not like they were doing any worse than sony, they are just being greedy.

      i guess thats why the people who got banned all went out and bought more 360s at walmart and amazon with the $100 giftcard.

      ndp numbers will show the 360 killed the ps3 this month and its all cuz the bans.
