[VGChartz]Microsoft Unbans all Modded 360s - Page 5

JTAG which requires older console, older firmware, a lot less likely. This enables homebrew and all the wonderful things.

Then we have the DVD firmware mod, which serves two purposes.
1. Playing legally backed up games.
2. Playing illegally backed up games.

95%+ of Xbox 360 "modders" have the DVD firmware mod for piracy. (or legal backups if you choose to turn a blind eye)

So basically what I'm asking, is this a senior moderator supporting piracy or did you spend a $300+ extra to be able to play those SNES games on your Xbox 360? rolleyes.gif

Look at you trying to take a poke at Overclock.net staff. rolleyes.gif

In any case, for sure there are ways in which some mods can be used for piracy. However I did not ONCE mention piracy. Also we were talking within the realms of CHEATING and not the piracy issue. Those who play illegally obtained games, it is there prerogative and OCN will not support said activities and neither will MS. Those who partake in such activities deserve to be looked down upon. However typical modding within the legal realms should not be !

Well said Enterprise. I have both a modded console for my backed up games (as you can see in the picture below, I have a LOT (over 150 and counting) of them, and with a toddler in the house, I do not want to take any chances with my physical media), and a JTAG to allow me to edit .xex files on games that I play locally (read not online, nor multiplayer. Not everyone that mods their consoles are cheaters.

So basically I used a butter knife to remove the GPU and CPU from my banned Xbox 360 and now this happens? This is blasphemy.

Agreed, this is probably just some mistake/oversight. It would make no sense to have done this intentionally. And why would people think that they're reacting to the Sony/PS3 fiasco? Their service is already off-line, so it's not like MS would even care to try to sway people from using the PS3/PSN since they already can't.

As soon as I read this I just knew it was to give Sony a kick while they're down. Nice going.

Strange thinking.gif I wonder...

Could be:
Intentional salt in wound strategy because PSN network is down
Live got hacked same as PSN
Microsoft gathering console info before new dash release
Complete random human error

(OP should get a poll to see what everyone thinks, lol)

So interested to see how this pans out over next few days & for what reason thumb.gif

This is the most likely case.

Why would they need to unban them to catch them again, they are already caught.


I think this is mostly an error.

This is what we call getting OWNED.
