They dont really gain anything by banning people, if your banned from live you no reason to go and buy the games as your not gonna gain anything.

If they do a check everytime you connect to live and if modifed drop the connectioon. It will give people reason to remove the mods and buy the games especially with halo3. Who wants to miss out on halo3 multiplayer...


Look my bro works for microsoft and he says why ban people who are giving microsoft 40GBP a year for live and spending cash on MP beleave me they no all about the firmware. The thing is they cant allow it forever they want you to taste live but i can asure you the dash update is gonna be a shock to you all cos i have a e-mail with included features in the Build like MSN and Browsing. the new system has a disk check so the people who download will be fucked i also heard there putting a key on every game for some reason i dont no but hey microsoft are rich as fuck and have the best people in the world. not disin the firmware but man do you think they dont no we have only scratched the surface. you all goto no that the consoll sends reports home to mumy i mean come on.

you might have a bit more credibility if your grammer/spelling was better and you didn't sign up for the sole purpose of saying that. also, ps2 online games had a unique key like you mention, and it was a matter of days before that was cracked.

to the guy who has a brothat works for ms.
if u have this email then show us?? other wise ur just b/s
i have a very good friend who works for microsoft infact he's working on the new tv package that ms are gonna be dishing out next year.
he also programs missiles for the goverment and belive me he is a very reliable source.
as far as he has been told there will be no bans with this suprise downtime.
he told me about it a few weeks ago so i made plans to go out tonight etc blah blah blah.

i dont belive what u say, and any person could tell u that ms are gonna start banning thats obvious. but u giving a bs story about ur bro working for them and this invisble email just really doesnt cut it.

I've got a modded TS ms25 drive, heh, and I still have xtreme 1.0. I'm on Xbox Live with no problems. At first I was getting the "profile might be invalid" message. Certainly made me nervous, but it was apparently some networking weirdness on my end, as I am currently signed in just fine now.

Cant connect here.

MS25 - Xtreme 4.1a FW

When i ran newtwork check last night i got as far as the MTU check which failed, it was only when i looked at the details i remembered XBlive was down.

Today it passes the MTU test but fails on the xbox live test, when i click for details the detail box is empty.

Ill give it a day or 2 before i panic, they may still be having teething troubles after the update.

Either you're 8, or English isn't your first language. Either way, you're not a credible source.
