Posted 08 November 2004 - 09:55 PM
I got my xbox modded w/o a modchip and now my dvd drive wont read games that i put in...the guy told me that it has a virus...and i've tried reading up on it and it doesnt seem like its even possible so i think he's bs'n me..N e wayz, my question is when I buy a xbox from a store, do they scan the serial number of the actual xbox because I want to buy a xbox, switch the consoles and return it so I get a free xbox..u guys think its possible??

You thieving pirate. May your Xbox, and all your xbox's to come over heat and explode.
Dude seriously that is so low class.
But anyway to answer your question. Yes the serial is scanned in. Also the owners of electronic stores know that people mod Xbox's and break them. So they always
- match serial numbers to the box
- and check the seals.

If you do this you are a theiving piece of shit. Also is it too hard to make complete sentences instead of one sentence/paragraph?

if you do decide to do it go to wallmart as they are pretty dumb on this sort of stuff
bestbuy or circuit city will actually open it up and plug it in and all that goood stuff
wallmart is usually no questions asked, and when i bought a new xbox from best buy a month ago they just scanned the barcode on the box, nothing with the serial number so as long as all the barcodes are the same on all the xboxs on the shelf i dont think you have to worry about that

My situation is that I bought my xbox from Best Buy and bought the extended warranty plan because my last one blew out with a red/green flashing light within the first month I had it (didn't even open the case - didn't know about modding then) and was able to replace the unit free of charge because of my in-store replacement plan thing, so anyway...
Buy a busted xbox off of ebay (make sure the case and everything is intact. Then just switch the casing from one to the other.
This method eliminates the serial number matching problem since now the case of the one you actually bought is now housing the busted guts of another xbox (they don't open the cases to look at the internals).
The only issue now is coming up with a legit (sounding) excuse as to why you are returning it after just having bought it.
I was considering using this method just to see if it would work, but I didn't want to be called a pirate.
Anyway, if you couldn't think that one up on your own, you don't deserve a new xbox for busting up your shitty one.
