Going for the jugular?

Dunno, sounds like it's going to do more harm than good.

I really want this to be true just for the entertainment. Someone here must have access to a banned console to try out.

I like how they do that but can't manage to clear a old gamertag I wanted that hasn't been used in 6+ years. (Yea I know their resetting but I haven't gotten mine)

Wouldn't a good portion of those 360s be banned for cheating online? Or were all of these pirated/modded 360s?

Exactly, this isn't good news. It seems like FUD.

^Sounds like a smart idea

It was suggested on that forum that you'd just get banned again if you went on Live, so I'm not sure what this does? Were banned consoles bricked?

Supreme confidence in their new update's ability to identify pirated discs?

Probably not. Or is it? Maybe!

I got nothing.

I'm sure most of the modded consoles will be re-banned quick but other unbanned consoles may belong to people that won't cheat and will buy their games this time?

Yea someone go confirm.......

Well, I got my banned 360s up here, but now I'm scared to try them out.
