'Banned' Xbox Live consoles appearing on eBay

Cheap consoles without connectivity

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Microsoft’s decision to ban gamers from Xbox Live as punishment for allegedly modifying their consoles has spurred many to simply sell their Xbox 360s through eBay, it has emerged.

Earlier today, the number of Xbox 360s described as “banned” on eBay’s UK website was steadily growing, with prices for such machines ranging between £21 and £150 ($35-250/€28-168).

Curiously, none of the sellers admitted that their Xbox 360s had been modified in any way.

Modifying the console is what got them banned from Xbox Live in the first place.

The sellers' efforts have prompted everyone else selling their Xbox on eBay to stress that what they're offering has not been banned.

So if you plan to pick up a cheap Christmas Xbox 360 bargain and you hope to play online, make sure you don't bid for a banned box. ®
