    I got the message also and considering Halo 3 is out Sept. 25 [in NA at least] I think they are going to start banning mofos.

    that kinda sucks because there are far more people who use their mods for actually backing up games instead of piracy

    Never know, What they may end up doing is implementing a system to find out who all has a hacked firmware and not banning anyone for 1 or two months for it. Everyone may start telling everyone that the water is safe and more hacked boxes log in and then one day.....Mass banning...Prolly happen on a sunday. We may call it black sunday even. I'm just speculating. Yeah sure hope all goes well though. What I would hate the most is to have to rebackup all my games again for a new firmware. What is left for them to check anyways? The location of the security on the disc telling them its not on the center ring anymore? who knows...

    I'm not here supporting or promoting piracy, but there's no way I believe that to be true. Also I am curious to see if ixtreme and stealth stands up to the test.

    i think ixtreme will hold it's defense

    anyway, server is getting maintained/upgraded most likely, to handle Halo 3 traffic.

    server downtime, doesn't necessarily mean they have something up their sleeve...

    well, like everything else only time will tell. No use getting yourself upset about it because as always you have only two choices. Either do the update, or never play XBL again.

    or of course for the rich folks buy a new system and the games you play online and only use the other console that is modded for offline back ups.

    and there are far more people who act politically correct in public then call people names in private. Give me a break!

    Oh well, most likely if they do start banning, I will just pop in my original firmware and start playing like I used to.

    i guess i don't quite understand what you're trying to say


    but anyways, i wonder if C4E will release a newer FW in light of the on coming updates just to work out a few small bugs that they might have in the stealthing, if they have any

    I have a question, COULD these updates change your firmware- so that you cant play backups on it anymore? or is banning you on XBL the only thing it does? cuz I honestly am not into online gaming so i wouldnt mind at all if thats all it did
