Locked: Microsoft get a life and stop random banning......

Hey, i just found out how microsoft is earning money, they ban random consoles so people have buy a new one. simple as that.

I preordered my Xbox 2 years ago with MW2, and i've played normally since then, i have not even modded my xbox or anything. (dont even know how to mod a game) I have not even got in a hacked lobby or anything like that in 2 years. and suddently this weekend when i came home my Xbox was banned. and im really pissed. Havent done anything that could get me banned, yea i have been swearing, but if they can hear that when i dont even have a mic, then they are insane that they can hear me from their HQ to my house in norway. i have bought alot of games in the marketplace, that could make my console banned? do they have a download limit? that I can only buy 1 game per year or my console will get banned? seriously stop being jerks. 

If microsoft is like this, i would rather buy a PS3.. cause they know what they are doing.

Well, I will have to admit that in the last few weeks, there seems to be an upsurge in console bans.  However, you won't get any sympathy from this site:  the official position is that you did something to get banned...if you don't admit it; i.,e, any poster who claims "I did not do anything" is labeled a liar...simple as that.

Anyway, post this in the Suspensions forums and maybe...maybe...you will get a specific reason, but I can just about assure you that your ban will not be lifted.

You'll get sympathy from me. I haven't knowingly violated the terms and conditions either. This is happening to a lot of people, BluffFlipper. It's not just you. You have to realize, though, something is systematically wrong and the PET (policy and enforcement team) of XBOX LIVE has had to have made some sort of mistake. They can't be 100% accurate all the time, as they claim. There is no room for human error. Just hang in there 'till Tuesday and hopefully Microsoft will release some sort of press statement regarding what the hell happened this past week and why a lot of supposedly innocent, loyal XBOX LIVE users have been console banned. Best of luck to you. Don't do anything stupid in the mean time. Be civil and be logical. If nothing changes by Tuesday afternoon, then it might be time to start acting like a crazy.

I switched to PS3, no rip offs, free connection. And they don't do console bans, only account bans, and they barely ever ban unless multiple reports come in.

[quote]Sony has started banning users who have jailbroken their PS3. Users are being given a lifetime ban on the PlayStation Network if their PS3s have been detected to be using unofficial firmware.

Sony just a few days ago released a statement on the PS3 hacking issue, warning all those that are using hacked PS3 firmware to cease immediately, or face drastic actions.

Those users with hacked PS3s were also warned via email to restore their PS3 to official status, and those that did not heed the warning are subsequently finding their PS3s banned from the PSN. These users then face the dreaded "8002a227" error when trying to log into PSN, although it appears most other functions are still unaffected.

Sony's rival, Microsoft, has had a long history of banning users who hack their Xbox 360 consoles, with actions taken ranging from a console ban to Xbox Live (Microsoft's equivalent of the PSN) account bans.[/quote]

Start by canceling your gold account and removing your credit card, this will allow you to talk to an account rep in person.  Next, file a report with the BBB.  After that, check out Facebook, "Microsoft", "XBox", on the right menu select "More", then finally select "Discussions" on the same menu.  There, people are rallying for a fight under "Console Ban - Global".  We expect them to delete the posts soon but there is good info there with Microsoft e-mails, phone number, and how to contact Fox News.

No...you can be banned and never get one complaint filed.  MS can detect if you have altered the hardware or software in your console thru yourLive connection.  The most common one I have seen are those who dvd drives have died.  They take to some repair shop (or do it theirself) and replace the drive in an effort to avoid paying the $100 repair charge.  But when that console is connected to Live a signal is sent MS indicating a hardware change.  MS assumes your are trying to cheat online and shazam!  Instant console ban!

Red Shift hit the nail on the head with this one....

My girlfriends son's console got banned too.  MS is just doing a very poor job PR wise here though, they should have sent a email before hand....

Hi. If your console has been suspended, it is due to a gross violation of the Xbox LIVE Terms of Use or Code of Conduct identified by the Xbox LIVE Policy and Enforcement team. This thread is now locked, as this is not open for discussion on the Xbox Support forums. You can post in the forum titled " 14 My Xbox LIVE Account was suspended . "
