He just got kicked offline and message me that his system was banned. His account didn't get banned though which is a little unusual for situations like this. He used the Bosnia account trick to get the game for free. Also it is written in the terms of service:

"Utilizing fraudulent methods in order to obtain region-specific marketplace content or circumvent regional pricing."

Doesn't seem like now is the best time to start banning people for this type of stuff with next-gen right around the cornet. I don't think MS want a lot of angry people with their only console banned going into next gen.

Edit: Sigh, his second account is HeedlessZebra36 which did get banned. Along with the xbox the game was downloaded to.

I bet it was for something else. Otherwise you'd think there would be mass waves of bannings.

Is there anything your friend isn't telling you, OP?

There's a Xbox Live profile with the same name that's currently not banned. At this point, I would really believe that it's his friend.

As for your friend getting banned, he likely did some bad crap that's he's "forgetting" or just not letting on.

What's the surprise there? Why not play fair.
Also, this will influence nothing. Nobody will care that someone got banned because they were pirating or cheating. I mean, at worse it will make sense to people.

Seriously, "I got banned for some mysterious reason" shouldn't be a gaf topic unless there were mass account bannings, one person whining about getting banned is just he/she said/microsoft said.

Gettings banned for circumventing regional pricing is a bit extreme. That means MS wants to lock up their console to each region which is the very opposite of what they are trying to do right now.

May be the OP can provide the gamertag of his "friend" so detectives can get to work?

If you really want Detective-Gaf to do their work and get you an answer, give them your friend's Live ID. Give them something to work with. As it stands, not much to talk about given the info you offer.
