If you don't know, when you get your account banned on Xbox you lose your licenses for all the digital content you own. It actually seems kind of fucked up that they can do that, but I guess it's their digital playground so they get to make all the rules, no matter how unfriendly they are.
I owned something like 250 Xbox Live Arcade games before the ban, so needless to say I lost a lot of games. Luckily, as far as I know, everything I still have saved on my hard drive can still be played. So even though I lost the license to redownload any of my digital games, I can still actually play the games I still have on my 120 GB hard drive.
Luckily I'm fairly OCD about memory management, and I did a really good job of downloading games I hadn't beaten and deleting games that I had beaten. So most the XBLA games I've haven't beaten yet I still have access too.
Anyways, let's get to the nitty gritty of it:
Games I "stole" from Microsoft:
Injustice: Gods Among Us
Assassin's Creed III
Mars: War Logs
Saint's Row IV Season Pass
Those 9 pieces of content are what got me banned. Obviously I wouldn't do it again if I had the choice, but oh well. I do still have all those 9 games downloaded so I can still play all of them even with my console and account ban.
Now let's take a look at what I lost due to the bans. I've actually separated them into games that are 100% gone (as in I don't have them downloaded and can never download them again) and games that I've lost the licenses to but can still play them since they're on my hard drive.
They're also color-coded and I have minor notes on some of them. Green means that I have beaten the game and Red means I haven't beaten the game.
Here are the games and DLC I completely lost because they are not downloaded on my hard drive:
So yeah, that's a lot of stuff. Luckily, as you can see, most of it is Green, meaning I've beaten the game before.
Here are the games I've lost the license to, but still have downloaded on my hard drive and I can still play:
So yeah, a ton more stuff. As you can see, the vast majority of that list is Red, meaning I haven't beaten it. Like I said, I did a good job managing my 120GB hard drive so at least I still have access to almost all my unbeaten XBLA games.
Besides all those games, I also lost about $13 worth of credit I had on my account and lost about 1.5 years of Xbox Live Gold time (1 year of which was acquired via the Bing 1-month for 1-year glitch.)
Overall, this ban does suck. I'm happy I still have access to most of my unplayed games and I plan to hold on to my Xbox 360 for a while and play through a lot of them. There's still some really good stuff that I need to play.
I'll have one more blog post coming up about The Aftermath of this ban, as in what my long term plans are for my consoles, the Xbox One, and basically my future with Microsoft.
