    I've always wanted to buy a 360 but never got around to it, and a few people have offered to sell their 360's for cheap, but I don't want to buy it then find out that it's banned from Live when I try to play. Is there a way to check beforehand? so I can purchase a legit 360

    The only way is to either tell them to give you the console serial number, then call Microsoft and ask. Or test it out before you buy it. If you get a connection error at XBL and have a Status Code of Z: 8015 - 190D, then its banned.
