well let me tell you this ive been paranoid since i heard about the first few bans so i been refreshing those support forums all day the past few days and theres been alot of threads that have been deleted after a few minutes and ive checked all their gamertags and most of em had the free games played on their account recently :shrug:

I was CONSOLE BANNED a few days ago.

 

I'm not going on their Xbox Forums to ask them why.  I'll get another console sooner or later.

 

Edit:  Main Account also suspended.  12/31/9999

when this happens to me there will be no point for me to buy another 360 as ill be out thousands of dollars in digital purchases over the 7 years ive had my main account and the $100 i got in my wallet. most people cant just take that hit and "deal with it" so theyll probably lose me as a customer now for at least awhile. i know it was my fault but in 7 years its the only mistake ive made lol.

 

ashame really cause ill have an extra grand to spend next month and now it will probably go towards getting a ps4 :shrug:

So...I didn't download any of these games but I"m curious.  Can you just log into your account on the PC and tell if you're banned?  If so then can't you just not log in with your 360 so they won't Fuck up your hard drive?

 

edit:

browsed their forums found this.

you can check if your account has been banned on xbox.com. but your console can be banned too. Even if you havent downloaded these games they still know which console you used for your purchase. Main accounts can get banned too. Just log in with your main account and hope.

Where does it show on xbox.com if your account is banned?  My point about the console being banned, if they're able to take away your downloaded content, just don't connect it to the Internet so they can't communicate the kill switch to it.  Problem solved.

I did all of this and I never got account/console banned. Granted I've had an account and console ban in 2009 for other reasons, you guys must be obviously doing something else.

 

Unless someone is actively banning accounts that you guys have listed here. The fact that I don't have a 'DypaehC' Live account, or list mine could very much be a reason why I haven't been hit by this banhammer.

it MUST be the reason because my rayman account got banned (and nothing else). Reason? marketplace theft. I only created this account and bought this one game.

 

My main account is working and my console too. So maybe i just get 1 streak for my console. Next time I will not do it again. I would stop playing xbox when they ban my account/console in near future.

Got console banned aswell. my account appears to be fine just says my console is banned for violating ToS. The only reason would be from downloading the "free" games because i dont share accounts and thats all ive done that would be against ToS. These games are not worth losing an xbox over dont try it.

 

my account is fine via xbox.com, just console.

this means nothing theres new people getting banned everyday obviously they are manually going through the accounts. the first one i seen get banned for it was on the 14th and theres people still reporting new bans for it today.

So you get an e-mail for console ban too? Not just for account ban? Does every account get an e-mail about the console ban? Because I usually do not check the e-mails of my dummy accounts.

So all the above posts are gonna get scrubbed for being off topic, making it look like nothing is wrong. Maybe someone can start a thread where all those banned like myself can add our names. That way others can see the true scope of the banning?

Motherfucker.  Got console banned as well.  The fucked up thing?  My fiance was the one who did the free game thing, even when I told her not to.  She didn't listen and I'm the one who gets fucked....

 

Main account= banned. Console = banned.  None of my 30+ digital games work, in addition to having $145 in MS money stolen from me. Ugh...

As someone who also got account and console banned, I think MS is cracking down to try to force 360 owners to switch to xbox one. I would have, but I still have 40 360 disk games I haven't played. Had to get a new 360 instead

I think the key here is that the free stuff was always acquired online...since the update to local currency and not being able to "purchase" through the site, everyone went through the console and that was a much bigger risk. Especially with games in different regions and people making multiple accounts.

Hmmmm . . . you're digital games don't work probably because your licenses are not in order.

 

Is this the console that you originally used to purchase the games?  If not, you need to be ONLINE in order to play them.  To play them OFFLINE -- or when you're banned, the licenses would need to be transferred from your past console.

 

Can't do this now since you're banned.  Most of my digital content is still playable as I had done a license transfer within the past few months.  This being my 3rd Xbox with this account.

I can confirm that console bans are indeed going out. I just received mine today after logging off for a quick break from Diablo 3. Logged on not more than 30 minutes later and got the console ban. I used an Oman account to get free games but I never hacked, modded, shared accounts or even license transfer. No doubt as to the reason I was banned.

Lol if you think you might get banned, you will. Seems like they are manually going thru accounts each day. So day by day more people are getting banned.

Most of the games were purchased on my other 360, that I still have, fortunately, but I transferred the licenses over to the new (banned) one over a month ago.  Something is not kosher with this, as MS is the one stealing legitimately purchased games and "money" from me.

 

EDIT:  I'll take the ban and whatnot.  My fiance fucked up and it's my console, so whatever.  But being denied access to what I actually paid for?  Fuck that.

I got console banned as well :(( I really think thats harsh to ban the whole console, it should have been an account banned for those region specific accounts. I wish the console banned could be lifted because I would tell microsoft, I would delete those accounts to get my console unbanned
