As witnessed by many of our members in this thread, it seems Microsoft allowed pirated 360 consoles back on the Xbox Live network... only for a couple of hours. Consoles who attempted to connect were greeted with an update (obviously since they hadn't accessed the Live service for some time). Some users reportedly managed to install the update and enjoy a full and normal Xbox Live service, but most people didn't get past the download sequence. Sadly, this must have been merely a bug on their end, as all banned consoles were denied access again a couple of hours later. Is there still hope for banned consoles? Discuss here!
