    XBox-Scene is reporting that MS has started another wave of bannings for all you modders. Disconnect from the Internet until it's all figured out.

    So much for being so stealthy...

    Gutting!

    Heres hoping its not an issue with the stealth, could be issues of people playing games weeks before they are due out anywhere. The most recent case being Mass Effect which came out on the scene almost a month before it came out.

    Fingers crossed!

    Don't worry that even if you disconnect from the Internet before a wave of bans you'll get banned anyway because Microsoft uses logs.

    Yeah, have heard that, will probably connect up when I get home and cross my fingers. From a few other forums it looks as though not many brits have been hit so I may be lucky.

    Here's hoping!

    They won't ban people for playing games early. MS has said that it's not the fault of the players, but rather the retailers. And they can't blame the player for something the retailer screwed up on.

    After reading xbox scene it seems like its something to do with the copied discs thats resulting in the ban. Somethings different about them, maybe whoever dumped them, never dumped them properly. I've played mass effect, cod 4 and halo 3 and I'm on xtreme 1.3c. Not been banned yet as I've logged onto live. Its just going to be a matter of time before M$ get us all. They probably want to increase xbox 360 sales over christmas [​IMG]

    Great, my gold membership expired, but I'm not banned.
    Why do I feel like I'll get banned as soon as I buy 1year prepaid gold membership?

    As long as your games are patched properly (scene releases usually are 100% of the time) and you are running ixtreme v1.2 or higher, you will be fine.

    That´s the problem. Many scene releases have are not 100 % patched, even though the boot on an iExtreme firmware and show ok in XDVDmuletter. You will have to check the CRC with an origanl copy, which may be problematic with pre release games.

    I'm not banned yet. I've been playing the games earlier since Bioshock, even used that copy of Halo 3 for a month that was later proven to have missing stuff in it that could lead to a ban. Yet i'm still connected just fine.

    im still ok here with ixtreme 1.2 but hell if i get banned it happens......its a risk i knew i was taking when i got it flashed....cant complain either only paid 200 for a premium with 9 real retail games n 2 wireless pads so its not a huge hit to the wallet.
