    Major Nelson Says:

    I’ve gotten a few messages and seen some forum threads pop up on console bannings so I thought I’d post and let folks know what’s up. In our our continued effort to keep gameplay safe and secure for our community of more than 14 million members, Microsoft has taken action against a small percentage of Xbox 360 consoles that have been illegally modified in order to play pirated games. You should know that modifying your Xbox 360 console is also a violation of the Xbox LIVE terms of use, will void your warranty and result in a ban from Xbox LIVE. The health of the video game business depends on customers paying for the genuine products and services they receive, both from manufacturers and the local companies that support them. We will continue to employ and bolster anti-piracy security measures to counter piracy in the gaming industry and improve security in the Xbox LIVE community.

    I’m sure it would have been mentioned if you got banned for using the NXE considering that was posted up today/yesterday depending where you are, so basically you got owned for pirating games.

    so what are you saying?

    we're going to get banned for having the NXE on our consoles?

    As such, we havn't pirated anything or modified our consoles in any way that violates the xbox live TOS (i don't think)

    As has been posted more times than I can count, plus confirmed by Major Nelson. If you install the NXE you cant access the live servers till its launched this does not mean your banned your xbox is just unable to connect.

    The next person who moans asking if there gonna get banned, or warn everyone without any creditable source or evidence, will get there post deleted.

    This is your final notice, your Xbox Live account will not be banned by installing this. You just won't be allowed on live on that console till its launched. It will be banned if your a pirate and modded your console to play pirated games but thats another issue altogeather from installing the NXE.

    okay well thanks for the reply, i wasn't moaning, i couldn't care less if i get banned i can afford to get a new console....

    however when i attempted to sign into live earlier....i got BAN QUEUE error codes....how do you explain this??

    the only explanation i can come up with is that the NXE Server/XBL thinks my console is baned because my console's ID isn't on this "list" that can connect to live using the NXE

    Your explanation is the most likely. As posted direct from Microsoft any console that gets the NXE by accident or deliberate means will just be disallowed from connecting to Xbox Live until its officially released. That stance has not changed. Do remember, the NXE can be installed by accident if you use a memory card or hard drive which has been used on a console with the NXE installed therefore MS would become the most retarded and hated company if they banned people for honest accidents.

    They have said they would not ban, and I doubt they would say that then change their mind without saying something.

    The only banning that has taken place is for people who have modified there consoles DVD drive and flashed it to play pirated games!

    Thanks Nimrod for clearing things up, you just relieved me of my worries.
    I could care less about not being able to sign in to LIVE until the 19th, it's only a week away, and I've gone longer.

    What's funny is, today at school I handed out NXE install CD's to everyone who had a 360, I burned like 20 last night. Everyone was very thankful, especially my friend who doesn't even have LIVE.
    Once again, than you.

    =)

    Hey man you sure know how to read. Maybe you got banned because maybe you have a modded console?

    If you bothered to read the whole email you would see that’s not the case, read the second post in this thread

    Please do tell me where it says “ban”, If you can back up what you’re saying with some proof do feel free to post some links, It just seems like your one of the people who just got banned for having a modded console and are blaming it on the NXE.

    Edit - frytheperson beat me to it, but you get the idea... I would be interested to know how posting a picture up will prove your console is not modded.

    And even if this guy was telling the truth, this could easily be circumvented by redownloading the NXE from Xbox.com come the 19th and then signing onto Xbox LIVE. ;)

    Exactly as many people have pointed out, it just feels like were going round in circles here every time someone can’t read an email without imagining the word ban is on every line.

    I’m not going to spend ages re posting why I think you won’t get banned for installing the NXE.

    As I think Nimrod posted earlier, anymore naysayers and scare mongers shouting ban ban ban frigging ban will most likely end up being banned on Digiex. If you're so desperate for the dashboard update and not wanting to be banned then just install the dam thing and disconnect your ethernet cable until the 19th. If you're still unsure then don't install the NXE update and be patient for a week! Wow this thread has got me riled up.

    Right I know this will probably not work but someone told me that they set there xbox date to 20/11/2008 plugged in the ethernet and clicked connect to live it let him connect and download the further update of avatars and stuff. I only reccomend trying this if you have a spare console and know how to change your ip because if it does work it could result in a ban. Not going to try it though.

    6 Days to go.. I think I can wait. Not to bothered about trying it.

    But it's a good idea. Maybe Insane nutter can try it (I think he has 2 consoles).

    I don't know how to fix your problem. I had the 'Disk Read Error' problem once, so I sent it in, but your problem.. don't think I've seen it before.

    On the subject of flashed consoles,
    I think they ban based on the pirated content, however, I don't quite know.
    I wonder how they track all of this as well... :?

    I tried it, Nothing, after hooking the ethernet cord back up and hitting connect to live the date changes back to what it was and it still doesn't go on LIVE.

    To play burnt games, yes you need to flash it. Though if you don't know how to flash it, theres no way you'll be able to flash the key on it. Each drive has a key that goes with the console, even if the drive is flashed it still won't play games inless that drive is the drive it came with. So if you plan to buy another i suggest reading up on more infomation first. As Even I'm not that sure on how to flash the key. Just try cleaning it.

    I’m not a 100% sure exactly how to do this, but there’s more required than just swapping the drive out and putting another in.

    Not to redirect you away from Digiex but I think would get a lot more information by asking this on Xbox-Scene, a lot of people who have made discoveries on how to do stuff like that hang out on there.

    Can I ask why not just send your 360 to Microsoft to get fixed? Even if you have a launch console your warranty doesn’t run out until next month I believe.
