Sold my mate my xbox 360 with latest firmware last week. Told him not to ever update xbox with Spring update as there were reports it had better detection. He is not banned yet.

Games a re cheap anyway these days so only pikeys use copied games. New titles are about £25 and you can always sell on old games for Ok money to recover costs.


You say this but I bet for a fact you download music for free.

Yeah I do very occasionally but the mp3 aint going to disable my PC is it. It's a false economy as shown by the million or so people with a 360 that cant be used online or be sold on easily without the person lying about it. I would also guess most people only play 3 or 4 games over a few months so just sell on the ones you aren't playing. Not worth the risk of fucking your console or being banned IMO.

I agree with you that games are much cheaper now but when I got mine modded (second year after the xbox was released) games were still expensive (£40 to £60) and I couldn't justify spending that on something I would probably get bored of after a few hours play.

There are so many games out now to pick up dirt cheap, that you can hardly justify modding your xbox. If you want to play the newest title just rent it, or wait a few months down the line and you can pick it up for a tenner on ebay.

I sold all my original games but I had had my console for 4 years before I upgraded the firmware as I originally bought it on release. With the money from the original games I then got a shit loads of games for £1 each that look legit so in away i'm having no cause effect on the economy. Also my modded xbox after a year packed in so I sold it on as faulty I bought an elite which I haven't modded and don't intend to yet. I just buy the odd game and then sell it on to buy another one.

Though to call people who have copied games pikey seems very harsh. We all abuse the system once in a while.

I love RPGs but wasn't keen on Oblivion. The new Bioware one Dragon Age is good though.

Mass Effect is still the best game I've ever played on an XBOX.
