Xbox 360 Console Banning

I was reading some about this new banning M$ has been doing this weekend, and I came across this:

From MS Console Banning FAQ

I have not committed any fraud, I’ve never had action taken against me by the enforcement team, and I know for a fact I have not modified my console.  Can you undo my suspension?

Sometimes it’s possible that a previous owner or another user may have performed unauthorized modifications to the console.  It is also possible that the purchaser of a used Xbox 360 was not aware the console was modified.  In either case we cannot undo the console suspension.  We recommend customers who believe they have not modified their Xbox themselves (or committed other actions on the service to warrant suspension) to contact previous owners or users of the console.

I guess you're screwed if you buy a used Xbox 360 that's been modified/banned without your knowledge.

If they didn't that'd be the first defense (loophole) people would use... Who the hell buys a used 360 anyway? That's lunacy given the failrate of the hardware.

Modern Warfare 2 with it's Mumbai bombing level. What is your guys opinion?

For me it's enough for me to leave the series for good.  I thought they were pushing the limits in COD4, but this latest one is just tasteless beyond acceptability.

 

Well like I said at GS I think it's a little rash to jump to conclusions without context to support the scenario. I seriously doubt that it's used to promote or glorify terrorism in any way. This is a game meant to be modelled on "modern" warfare so including a terrorism scenario seems like a reasonable expectation. My instinct tells me it's used in the game's story to elicit more types of emotion aside from the typical "sit down and just have fun" type. Personally I'm looking forward to the game more then ever in hopes that it is really well down and moves me in more ways then most typical games do.

Looking at the amount of used 360 consoles being sold at my local Gamestop and on Ebay, I'd say there's a lot.

I wasn't talking bad about Microsoft's stance; I completely understand why they have that policy. It just sucks for the average consumer who buys a used 360, and unknowingly comes away with a banned console. I figure most of the people M$'s banning right now are going to be selling their banned consoles ASAP.

I'm not against the banning of improper consoles either.

Good response. I don't think they are glorifying terrorism or promoting terrorism -- much worse than that -- they are commercialising it. Capitalizing on human suffering.  Will I buy it? Well, chastened by your post I'll wait and see what the fuller context is and then make a judgement, but on the face of it (given what we know now), it's crass.

So on the topic of my double standards here (given that I didn't have these qualms about playing a WW2 soldier blasting away at Nazis) the difference is the loss of "innocent" human life. Soldiers killing soldiers, bad guys killing cops -- that's all fine to me - cops sign up for it, as do soldiers.  But people staying at a Hotel in Mumbai have not signed up to be participants in a war on terror, and I just can't see playing a terrorist killing "civilians" as being fun, rewarding or elucidating to my views on the plight of insurgents.

If they didn't that'd be the first defense (loophole) people would use... Who the hell buys a used 360 anyway? That's lunacy given the failrate of the hardware.

Looking at the amount of used 360 consoles being sold at my local Gamestop and on Ebay, I'd say there's a lot.

I wasn't talking bad about Microsoft's stance; I completely understand why they have that policy. It just sucks for the average consumer who buys a used 360, and unknowingly comes away with a banned console. I figure most of the people M$'s banning right now are going to be selling their banned consoles ASAP.

Fair enough. You know MS has to have metrics on how many machines where shu down. That would be a juicy stat.

Windows 7 was distributed to 7 million beta users but they were getting back telemetry from 15 million users (so more than half got their copy of Win7 from bit torrents). They didn't care, it is making for a less buggy product, but just goes to show that they are keeping tabs on this kind of thing.

Is everyone just reading the title or not reading it at all?  I'd tell you what I do, but I'm currently apparently the one who reads the most news from here Hrm

Hey, I don't read the news, I just post it. Nyaa 

At a blistering rate of 0.5 stories per day

 Which is higher than my read rate I'm sure. Grinning

As the resident consumer-rights-advocate here, I have no problem with Microsoft in this case.  Xbox Live as a service, Microsoft is within their rights to control who connects, and if you bought a modded used console, that's between you and the seller.

Modern Warfare 2 with it's Mumbai bombing level. What is your guys opinion?

For me it's enough for me to leave the series for good.  I thought they were pushing the limits in COD4, but this latest one is just tasteless beyond acceptability.
Well like I said at GS I think it's a little rash to jump to conclusions without context to support the scenario. I seriously doubt that it's used to promote or glorify terrorism in any way. This is a game meant to be modelled on "modern" warfare so including a terrorism scenario seems like a reasonable expectation. My instinct tells me it's used in the game's story to elicit more types of emotion aside from the typical "sit down and just have fun" type. Personally I'm looking forward to the game more then ever in hopes that it is really well down and moves me in more ways then most typical games do.

Good response. I don't think they are glorifying terrorism or promoting terrorism -- much worse than that -- they are commercialising it. Capitalizing on human suffering.  Will I buy it? Well, chastened by your post I'll wait and see what the fuller context is and then make a judgement, but on the face of it (given what we know now), it's crass.



 If this is just the airport scene the only exploitative and offensive part I found was the ending. Very, very black and white and laughable.

But that's just me.

Iwata interested in Kindle-like service as a business model, believes full digital download acceptance is a ways off

“I’m interested (in the Kindle) because it’s a new business model in which the user doesn’t bear the communications cost. Only people who can pay thousands of yen a month [in mobile phone subscriptions] can be iPhone customers. That doesn’t fit Nintendo customers because we make amusement products. In reality, if we did this it would increase the cost of the hardware, and customers would complain about Nintendo putting prices up, but it is one option for the future.” - Satoru Iwata

Mr. Iwata also had a little bit to say on the industry's adoption of digital distribution.

“I think it will take quite a long time.”

Yeah, was it because of Leo's story?

Read yoda's post, you clods. PM him if you want further details. The thread was locked due to personal reasons.

I couldn't read it because the second page wouldn't load.

Yeah I like light-gun games and I like Dead Space and Extraction would be a game I would enjoy but right now it just isn't high enough on my priority list, way too many other games I'd rather get first.

Get Resident Evil DC off the list and put Dead Space Extraction on the list. It will be hobo price soon anyways.

What??  Oh please, screw Extraction. Seriously, it was not that much fun.  If you're a fan of the series stick with RE DC.

Why does anyone care enough about either game to get even mildly heated? Nyaa

From what I've read though, Extraction has got a great critical reception, whilst every Darkside preview says that its slow and disappointing. Robio your impressions of games are somewhat divergent from the norm though, games like Little Kings Story, GTA Chinatown Wars, Extraction and Rhythm Heaven have been highly lauded by the vast majority of critics. You haven't played the original Dead Space though so maybe people who have would get more out of it?

You may have missed it, but I said some really, really stupid things in there that could have put me in serious danger, so I think that was the quickest solution.

Start a different topic if you feel the need to discuss it further...(?)

Don't worry about anything here, its not a big deal, not even a small deal. Water off a ducks back. Happy

That 1up Assassin's Creed preview got me all giddy. More varied mission types and structure, an assassin's career spanning 30 years, you can buy a villa!

OMG, can you decorate it with furniture and items and write letters to people? Grinning

FYI in Monster Hunter 3 you have a pet pig you can dress up! LOL

Sounds wrong as I read about 6-9 stories daily. But I guess that may be me reading them from the original source, as or before I post them.

I think I may have posted a few stories about it but I didn't read them as I wont be getting MW2 for a long time.

Can you explain briefly what the controversy is? My father was born and lived in Mumbai and the terrorist attacks were atrocious.
