That's been happening to random people recently. Hopefully they'll fix the problem.

I'll bet this is similar to the people who say they were banned from the chat room here for no reason...

What do you mean, is this something likely to happen or is it more like one in a million?

I've recently heard that it's been randomly happening to people with clean consoles, and that it might be an issue with Microsoft.

I got console banned and somebody at M$ decided that they would respond to my emails on why I got banned. They told me that it was a bug and to try again in a few weeks.

Might as well email them and see if it helps you.

Well, maybe I would. Just to play Crackdown or Forza though.

Maybe you should tell us the whole truth, thief. What were you doing illegally that go you the ban. Don't be playing the I didn't do anything card here, the only reason that you would have been banned is for illegally accessing content on the XBLA marketplace. Something that you were 100% fully aware of what you were doing. Maybe next time you should actually buy something instead of stealing.

During the course of a recent investigation, we have discovered users who illegitimately accessed Xbox LIVE Marketplace downloadable content. Our investigation reveals that this access was intentional and not accidental, constituting a blatant violation of the Terms of Use for the service. We will not divulge additional information regarding individual suspensions for these offenses.Please know that we are being very careful regarding these suspensions, and have clear evidence regarding each account issued a permanent suspension from the service. We apologize for any frustration or confusion resulting from our inability to share individual details, and thank you all for your cooperation in this matter.

It's not a bug on Microsofts part. It's 100% intentional.

Wow, angry much? I just found out my friend's console was banned too, and I can guarantee you he did nothing to earn a ban. Why don't you chill out before assuming you know what's going on? It's entirely plausible that there are flaws in their system. Have you ever heard of a company being 100% right all the time?

This isn't a automated ban, this is Microsoft swinging the ban hammer down on thief's. People who they've tracked taking part in non jtaged XBLA thief. I've got no sympathy for people like him. I agree with stick on this issue, he's not telling us everything. Especially the day AFTER microsoft starts banning these people.

I know why the bans are happening, but again, do you think Microsoft is 100% without fault all the time? I KNOW there was no stealing going on with my friend's account, as I play with him all the time. It's on the console, not just over live, so I've physically seen the state of his account before the ban. He doesn't download or buy anything from the XBLA, or anything like that. He turns on the console, gets in whatever game, and plays multiplayer. That's the extent of his actions, and was banned anyways.

You don't have to. It's not something I would lie about anyways, but feel free to doubt me, since you so clearly hold MS up on that pedestal of unfaltering glory. I support the banning of actual thieves and hackers, but not without proof, which MS won't show.

Also, you still haven't answered my question: Do you really think MS is 100% mistake free when it comes to bans?

Actually, no I don't hold M$ up on a pedestal


No, I don't believe that they're 100% mistake free, but I do believe that the OP has involved with a TOS violation that's he's not sharing with us. A thread popping up the day after a mass ban involving something that is easily differentiated within the XBL community. Proclaiming his innocence, I have a extremely hard time believing that. All they need to do is look at the purchase history and compare the content they've got on their console. Flick the switch, banned. Hell your friend may have even gotten a map pack for free or something along those lines that resulted in the ban.

I have to side with Drexler on this one, It's kind of like the people on Craigslist UK Selling a bunch of BNIB Ipods during the riots after a shit ton of them got stolen...Just sayin'

Still, hit them with an email, if they tell you it was a bug, it was, if they refuse to tell you, then you obviously fucked up.

As much as i hate feeding people money for shit that should be free, I'm not a theif...all the time.

Most of the time.

Sometimes.

I just wish they would at least give some proof, instead of simply declaring a ban and moving on. Unfortunately, even if they did make a mistake, they wouldn't own up to it, because then it casts doubts on their detection software, which is the last thing they want.

Same here. My accounts have been reset numerous times, because scrubs get mad at me and all get together and report me for hacking (aka being too good). It's really annoying.

I seriously hope the OP emails microsoft and asks what the hell is going on. I have no idea what is the deal but my friend has not even played for the last 2 weeks and it said his console was banned on the 7th, but how the fuck is he going to pirate shit from XBL if his xbox is at my house with no power brick? I think microsoft really fucked up here, it looks like they are covering their asses and this is coming from a guy who's uncle works for M$.

Since some people doubt me I'll admit the things I HAVE. Done wrong
1. Opened console for a casemod
2. Moved dlc from two separate consoles on two separate gamertags (think this is ok)
3. Modded gamerscore ( got a 1 day ban)
And that's all nothing that should permanent ban me

No, it's called a file transfer. If you had an older Xbox, with a bunch of DLC on it, and a newer one that you use with none, you can do a file transfer to get all the old DLC onto the new one.

A budget gaming pc is between 300 - 500 bucks. Midrange is 600 - 900, high end is 1000 +


Considering that most people spend 120 bucks on a game and dlc alone, yeah. 360 is cheaper. 1 console and 1 COD game with all the dlc. About what, 350ish? That's not including the TV or sound system.

Let's look at my upgrades list come this October. I'm reusing my HDD's, case, OS and psu.

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black edition - 120$
CrossfireX capable mobo - 120$
AMD ATI HD6950 2gb - 250$
8gb DDR3 ram - 50$
Total upgrade cost - around 540 bucks.
Time till next overhaul, est. 2.5 - 3.5 years.

And my PC does so much more than a console.

And people bitch about PSN having problems.

I've heard of this happening before. This is another reason why I'll never buy an Xbox 360.

Well, maybe I would. Just to play Crackdown or Forza though.


if thats the only reason you are a fanboy, everything has bugs the people thats say M$ doesn't are morons don't listen to them


I'm not a fanboy. The PS3 isn't my only console, nor is it my favorite. I much prefer the PS2. However, the reason I don't want to buy an Xbox is because it's a badly designed piece of shit (RROD) system with waaay too many shooter games. The PS3's exclusives just far outshine the Xbox's. In fact, Sony and Nintendo always had better exclusives. However, the PS3 has its problems. The controller is up to personal preference, so I'm gonna ignore the "batwing vs. Xbox controller" thing. The PS3 is a piece of crap too, but only in terms of its design flaws (YLOD).

I don't want to sound like a fanboy, but the PS3 is just a better system, if only for the free online and superior exclusives. I also grew up with the PS1 and 2, so I'm more familiar with the adventure and platformer games, like Ratchet and Clank and Sly Cooper, as well as the controller.

Take what you will from my comment. I'm just stating why I never have desired an Xbox.

Might as well get another word in before this turns in to a kiddy flame war.

If you wait until around November, during Black Friday sales, you can build an awesome PC for about 300-500 bucks, you can put it in a little case and it can be a psuedo mobile entertainment center, games, movies, ect.

Better than any console.

i still think its fucked up that since i got the red ring of death( ON MY ELITE), that they sent me a different refurbished console.
then when i plugged my hard drive in and tried to play some XBLA games without my internet connection, ALL of them were listed as demos and i couldnt play the full extent of the games
meaning any arcade game i have(i have well over 30) are not playable unless i am connected to the internet
its complete bullshit
thats why ive gona and purchsed multiples of them on my ps3, or if i know my friends have 1, they log in on my ps3, and download it to my hard drive lolz

a majority of the money purchased goes to the game developers, so they are still getting thier share from the xbox version

They didnt transfer the console rights properly. You can actually fix this yourself, just look up DRM transfer X360.

...This is true, BUT, Can BF3 claim that it is indeed the best military hat simulator?

Of course you presumed that, Dice, your are as presumptuous as your are POOR and IRISH, NYAH NYAH NYAH

I attempted to post an image of a gentlemen of leisure, but the scaling is all sorts of messed up...so, make due with nothing.

Because that's what we had when I was a kid.

Dirt.

And the internet, but dirt was cheaper.
