I know this may be an incredibly stupid question, but I've always liked to be three steps ahead whenever I mod a console. I've been a longtime PS3 player for awhile now and my sole interest in the 360 is to play the exclusives. I'm not interested in the online play at all and have no intention of signing up for Xbox Live. If I keep my console completely offline, will I ever be at risk from a banhammer? Also, is there any way to not have an avatar? I really don't like how they look and would like to avoid having one if possible.

No you won't be at risk, your console won't be even online

For avatars well you cant do without one, its not like it will ruin your gaming experiance if you do have one that is

If you only want to play the 360 just to play the exclusives with no online play why are you worried about getting banned? Being banned is for pretty much for online, it shouldn't apply to you since don't want to play online at al.

As for the Avatars, they are required. I don't think you can play without a gamertag and with a gamertag you have to have an avatar.

Figured it was a stupid question. However, I got one more question. When a 360 is banned, can is still play games offline or are you just out of luck period? I've seen banned 360s for sale and I'm considering it right now.

With a banned 360 you can't connect to Live, you can't play XBLA games or use DLC from the harddrive, and you can't install games to the harddrive. You can only save and load, and play games off the disc.
