Opening the console will void the warranty and Microsoft will not touch it.

 

It's also against the terms of use so if you do plan on playing on Live you are putting yourself at risk for a console ban.

Just to clarify, opening the console or breaking the security seal in any way will render the warranty void, and the console ineligible for future repairs or service by Microsoft.
