Xbox Account Issue

Is there any way a dormant account can be purchased from xbox or deleted. Its unfair and not right that there are so many gamertags that me and others want but the account has been dormant for years or been banned for ever.

It would depend on when Microsoft decides to release gamertags. The only time they've ever done so was a few years ago when they released original Xbox gamertags that have never been converted over to the 360. So there's no timetable on when/if they will release them again.

At some point Microsoft will probably release them like they did with original Xbox accounts, but otherwise no. Keep in mind that even if the accounts aren't  being used on a console they may be in use on another Microsoft service.
