This ban wave is scaring me...

I heard people are being banned for account sharing. I am nervous. Awile ago my friend put his account on my 360 and gave me some map packs and a game. I played it on my account (or was it his don't remember) but as soon as I quit the game I could no longer play...and the map packs did not work by the way...


So Is it possible my account could go bye bye? or is this about some alternate form of account sharing?

Star fox advenutes is my favirote starfox game. I like it more than starfox 64. Deal with it.

That's a perfectly valid way to use accounts, the bans aren't going out for things like that.


Then again innocent people are getting banned so any one of us could be next.

If the map packs didn't work since you didn't do it right, you will be fine.

You mean where somebody downlaods their games on your console and they move their GT back to their own console?

You heard wrong.

Does anybody read what MS actually says or do they just listen to the liars that claim innocence?

Now now, Monkey, don't go all WinterNova on him. We save the Nova stuff for, you know, the legend himself.

Just go back to giving tech advice. :D

Ms isn't' saying exactly but they said that it's nothing that happens accidentally.

the "account sharing" thing is nothing new, it's plain as day in a nice, short, to the point explanation when you buy things, if you read the terms of use that pops up if you press the X button or whatever every time you buy something.

To "account share" you're placing a lot of faith in the other person and I don't think it's a widespread problem. Not nearly as widespread as PS3 account sharing which is much more of a true "account sharing" then this is on the 360.

If you're doing it over the internet it could look much more like account theft to MS that way, considering that is one of the problems, where people get their accounts stolen, and people recover them and downlaod crap on their 360. But I doubt that's even what this is about either.
