Fuck, to get the medals in Pacman championship edition DX+, we must share achievements and medals through facebook??!! Why the Fuck should I do that?? Now we also have to link our facebook account with the MS one to be more controlled?

 

That is why everyone should have a fake facebook account.  - I use it exclusively for marketing-type crap.

OP is back to being wikified.  I think TiredJohn fixed the issue I was having last night.  

 

Lame, it looks like you still can't edit the title when wiki-editing the OP.

I look forward to "I made a new thread for Risk Factions at 20% off because it wasn't in the XBL thread title."

i just had a thought; your main acct and console got banned; by any chance, did you create your main account on that console? (was it like, the first/only console you ever signed in on?) i'm definitely not on my first 360, and i just thought that perhaps that might have something to do with if the mains are spared. prob not but worth asking.

Haha I remember those days!

 

Anyways, I'll still update the title on Tuesdays if you guys want to leave me as the OP.  I'm still gonna be on CAG all the time, hell I'll probably still hang out in this thread since there are some really cool people here.  I just don't think I'll have the ambition to actually update the OP anymore.  Worked out well that my bans and the return of wikis happened on the same day. (Conspiracy?)

 

However, if someone else wants to take the reigns of OP all together that would be fine with me too.  But it's best for everyone if that person is here all the time so the title of the thread does not get out of date.

I'm not sure about any of that, but I can tell you it is the console I created the account on, it's the only Xbox I've ever owned, but it's not the only console I've ever signed in on.

hmm. has anyone else here had their main account banned? if so, was the console that got banned the first 360 you ever signed into live with on it?

 

has anybody who's logged in for the first time with both their banned accounts, and their main ones on their banned 360 gotten away with their main account in tact?

 

again i doubt it but it's something i haven't seen questioned yet.

Posting this because MajorNelson himself just tweeted it:  12 mos. of Live Gold for $48.99 from Amazon (card only).

Please don't hate me because it's not about a dashboard sale, or about consoles and gamertags being banned.

I can't imagine having a really high gamerscore and trying anything that could get you banned. I lost my account with 29k gamerscore and I never really cared for achievements...mostly just getting the ones for beating the games. Now with my new profile i'm up to 3000 and replaying some fun games and actually trying for alot of achievements.

I had said earlier that I know someone who got banned and downloaded Rayman. He had 492K gamerscore! Bet that hurt.

Serious question:  Why does Gamerscore mean something for some of you?

 

It gets you (at a certain level) marginally better XBox Rewards returns but otherwise.... it doesn't actually do anything, and isn't used for anything at all.

 

Is it just a sheer point of pride or something?  I'm always amazed at the stock some put into Gamerscore.

It gives you a reason to play games you would not have normally played otherwise. I wouldn't have played a lot of underrated games that I ended up really enjoying if achievements did not exist. It's fun raising the number. Kotaku had an article a few years back about how number make people like things more, or something like that.

It just sets goals on games that are fun to do (most of the time). Why not have fun getting achievements in games since you love gaming!?

No bans yet for me.  I'd be perfectly fine with a console ban if it does happen.  I have multiple other X360's and it will finally give me the incentive to mod one since I'll no longer have the fear of being banned.  My account getting banned would sting a lot more but at least it would finally free me from my gamerscore addiction and without gamerscore being a factor which console to buy next gen becomes a super easy decision for me.

Sense of accomplishment is all. Why climb a mountain, why break a land speed record, why do anything that doesn't directly benefit you or gain you something? The feeling of accomplishment. It's fun, that's all.

Well I'm banned too.  Only thing that bugs me is the kids can't see the pictures to choose their games.  Guess I should have used up my points.  I still feel it was worth it.  I saved so much money in games on the other marketplaces that I purchased at a discount.  Still think MS is making a huge mistake as I had over 100 games PURCHASED (leaving out the free stuff) so that's just money lost down the road.

 

Shrug.  Oh well.  PS4 here I come...

i got a lot of games for a cheaper price from the Hungarian market place, should I be worried about a ban now or are they only cracking down on people that got free games?

 

i "paid" for those games (with bing points) but this has me a little nervous

I guess MS feels like it's better off cutting off the small community of people that takes advantage of these situations? Either way their losses are minimal.

Actually it appears that Microsoft only banned my console as I can still login to the online marketplace through my pc with my gamertag.  I'm guessing they banned the oman account. 

 

I disagree that their losses are minimal though...it's now a double loss.  They've already lost on the games that were free but now they also lost a paying customer. 

 

I guess what my issue is the fact that it's been a grey area for years.  I spent plenty of time reading up to find out if this was really an issue and saw many examples of people actually speaking to reps about having moved to another country (usually for military reasons) and tried to use live for purchases and had problems with that region and were told to just use another region (like canada in one example).  So it just seems like a double standard. 

 

Lots of people have been doing this for years so to suddenly go on a purge when apparently it's ok sometimes but others it's not is what I take issue with.  With the recent bad press and 180's they've been doing, they just keep compounding the image problem they are having right now. 

 

With my GT still intact I may consider buying another console so my kids can play but not until they are on the cheap and it certainly opens up the possibility of all the fun modifications you can make (that don't affect MS like Black ops zombie mods and things).

This is the worst advertisement for Sony/PS4 ever.

 

"I did something on Xbox to violate my ToS and got banned, so I'm switching to PS4... presumably so I can try those things on there instead".

 

I can see the slogan now:  "PS4 - We're the Australia to XBox's Britain".  And "PS4: XBox's penal colony".  I'm sure that will make for a lovely user community.

 

And yes I'm saying this tongue-in-cheek.  I'm sure someone is going to take this way too seriously and descend upon me with righteous wrath.

I play bad games

If anyone isn't going to use their code I'd love them forever.

I don't like Godzilla.

There are just so many un-Godzilla like things it should be easy to see why people didn't like it (also the annoying cast). Zilla being killed by missiles was the biggest thing that bothered me Godzilla is supposed to be far stronger than that. The army shouldn't be able to hurt Godzilla unless they are using something like MechaGodzilla or Moguera.

Banned here too. Not psyched but I understand and accept the ban. 

 

The only thing I'm having a little trouble with is losing out on my account balance. It seems like they should have to refund it regardless of the ToS violation. Not sure if this is the best analogy but, if I walk into a store and pay for a $12 item with a $20 bill, I shouldn't be prevented from spending the remaining $8 or receiving my change, even if I insulted the cashier.

Umm...except Sony/PS encourages game/account sharing.  There are whole threads elsewhere on this site devoted to people swapping and lending PSN accounts.  I've never had a PS, but my friend and I are thinking of jumping on board cuz then it's basically each of us paying 50% off for games on day one if we share them.

If you took something that you should have paid for then it could be considered as MS recovering payment for said item.
