This Is How A Console Ban On Xbox One Looks Like

Interesting Posts

By -

Moonlightswami, the ever growing popular individual on twitter, who received his Xbox One way early before the release date because of a confusion at Target store which started shipping the consoles early, got his console banned when he tried going online.

Moonlightswami has been proving the internet with a lot of information and pictures about the Xbox One he received but ultimately got his console banned for going online early before the release date. Moonlightswami is trying to get into contact with Microsoft to plead his case for the console ban. He states that his console is only banned and not his Xbox LIVE Gamertag. We hope that Microsoft listens to his case and lifts his console ban as it is not the fault of the individual who received the console early because of a mistake made at the retailer’s end.

In the meanwhile you can have a look at how the console ban message looks like on the Xbox One when connection it to the internet:

Compared with the console ban on the Xbox 360, the message appears to be similar. Microsoft bans consoles which have been modified. Microsoft also reserves the right to ban unreleased or beta consoles according to the Xbox One Dev. Personally, the Xbox One Dev hopes that this ban is only temporary until the Xbox One is officially released.

What do you think about banning consoles which are shipped early to the customers who pre-ordered? Are these bans justifiable? Let us know in the comments below.

    Actually not likely. That would normally be a ban of user account and not the system itself.

    His Console shouldn’t of been banned. A message should of popped up saying the Xbox One doesn’t release till NOV 22 2013 and this site is unavailable till then. Try again Later. But no, they Banned him because they are complete Aholes.

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      no, because he didn’t respect terms and condition, he will get unbanned when it is released. They must make everything working for news reporter to test everything with the famous day-one patch….

      • hakesterman

        You don’t un-ban a console through Xbox LIve. You have to send it in to MS$$$ to get it fixed. MS$$$ went way over board on this one. This is the final straw for me, going PS4.

        • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

          Major Nelson already posted on twitter that it wasn’t a perm-ban. And what make you think they can ban at distance but not unban…. lol they ban the console unique ID, they didn’t even ban the gamertag, only the console. stop trolling and go check your mail if your ps4 has arrived earlier. who knows

          • hakesterman

            I don’t have a PS4 on or a Xbone on order so i don’t have to check anything. And i don’t believe a whole lot about anything any Rep. from microsoft say’s, they lie and back pedal all the time why would they change now. Go check your email, maybe they found a way to get 1080P game play on the Xbone, Who Knows!

      Jessenia Lopez, looking at your other comments on articles, you talk about xbox fanboys alot… yet every comment you have made is about how glorious anything playstation related is and how terrible xbox and pc gaming is. I would say… you are a hypocrite.

  • cubs223425

    Microsoft really is the worst at P.R./damage control.

    • great_mofo

      yea dude, omg.. they keep screwing it. all that story about Xbox One being locked for offline gaming, kinect watching your house 24/7, no gaming share, etc.. man, cant they think a minute ahead of them ?

      • cubs223425

        1. Offline gaming was never “locked.” It had to be re-approved every 24 hours (which, don’t get me wrong, is stupid beyond reason), but it wasn’t just “always locked.”
        2. Kinect was never doing that. When the console was off, ALL it was supposedly capable of was picking up the “Xbox On” command, though we could never determine if that was true, since policy changed.
        3. Sharing was digital, and people got the whole game for free with it, we were told.

        Their implementation was terrible for sure, but you’re just trolling now (I’m still searching for the “/s” in your comment).

        • great_mofo

          Whatever dude… my english is very limited, I meant exactly what you said. It doesn’t matter the details, we all know the story and how Microsoft handled it, that’s my point. I was just trying to enforce what you said. I couldn’t imagine you were such an Xbox fanboy. But yeah, whatever …

          • cubs223425

            So you’re a fanboy if you correct extreme factual inaccuracies? Cool. I’ll just respond in-kind and blindly call you a fanboy, since you’re telling lies to make your point sound better. I can see that this community is heavily biased and uninterested in intelligent discussion from the comments anyway, so I’ll see myself out.

          • great_mofo

            Oh please, don’t do that. We’re so in need of someone to correct our fact innacuracies…

  • aawells07

    I’d be in full panic mode if they didnt lift the ban once the console was released.

  • J A H

    I don’t blame them for banning the console until it’s official release date, but other than that, if they continue the ban beyond Nov 22, it’s completely unjustified. He bought his console legit. It’s not his fault they sent it to him early and I doubt there were any markings on it saying “don’t play till November 22″. If I got mine early, I would have been playing it, too. Anyone would.

    • HalfBlackCanadian

      I agree with that mentality (why not play it?) however I doubt that is the full story. If Target shipped to him then the shipped to others. How many other people have posted screenshots on gaming sites? It has more to do with that (considering he could likely join any online game without anyone noticing anyway)

    • angh

      But why this is banned? it should be an information about network services not ready yet and date when the connection will be available. Banning for just trying to connect with a legal hardware is just pure BS.

      • BillyHoWCR

        The banning just prevents him from connecting to their system now. It is much easier to ban/block systems that aren’t supposed to be online then it is to set up a firewall to block everyone and allow only certain systems.

        • angh

          It’s not about what’s is easier, but even so, it seems to be easier to block it on server side, and handle any connection with message ‘not available yet. No Firewalls needed. It’s like any website – just returns information of if available or not. And it should be handled that way.

          • BillyHoWCR

            Well no… your suggestion is simply closing down the server. but it needs to be available for the continued activities they are doing on it prior to public release. They have to continue to test and work on the servers as they are setup for actual use.

          • angh

            Password access then? or whitelist of logins? just a ‘ban’ isn’t best way to handle it, and given recent bad PR Microsoft could do something to look a bit better… It may require a bit more work, but hey, this is software based company, not General Motors.

          • BillyHoWCR

            “Password access then? or whitelist of logins?” Do you not understand that Xbox One’s XBL is the same XBL that Xbox 360 runs on? It is not a separate entity.

            The point is… they have an update they are working on and updating on a daily basis up till launch date for the Xbox One to connect and update. They want no Xbox One system to be using code that is not final and then reporting any relative experience with it as if it is final.

            Though the word “BAN” seems harsh… it is basically just a control option. Why again should they work on building in a restrictive password, whitelist, or any other such poor idea to gain access to XBL when the few people that might be attempting to access said service early (above those that are given access for objective reasons) can simply be banned from using the service.

            You don’t add a temporary access scheme into a service that you are continuing to test and tweak up till release? That adds a variable that can result in possible issues down the line when they remove it for launch. Just not a smart idea.

            Get over it.

          • angh

            Lol. If they have code to identify and ban consoles that mean they can identify and instead of ban display information about release date. You have no idea about programming, do you? If they can identify a person to ban, they have already whitelists, don’t they? They do not doing banning manually.

            Ban is no control option. It is prohibiting owner of console from using it. control option is giving the information and limiting the usage of online features.

            That means, if the company care.

            And easy, I already got over it. Getting ps4, not planning to get xbox one.

          • BillyHoWCR

            Try again. Have been coding before you were born likely. You have no clue how the system works. And the console was banned manually.

            The ban prevents the user from using their XBL service. Not the system itself.

            It has already been pointed out that the update he had for his system was outdated and not final code. Thus the reason he is having issues with his console play offline. And that his ban will be temporary and function correctly on release date once he is unbanned and can access updated DLC.

            Also, try speaking English next time and that might assist in our communication? Enjoy your PS4… why are you trolling Xbox One content again?

          • angh

            Sure, you might have been coding before I was born, but that mean you are probably already retired.
            If that was done manually, then it should be even easier to create a small info screen to explain the reason, instead of using standard banhammer.
            And sorry about my English, its not my 1st (not even a 3rd) language. Still working on it.
            I don’t think so I’m trolling any content. Simply want to understand why Microsoft is trying so badly to keep bad reputation. Instead of take care of problem in the customer – friendly way they are simply do not care. If I had the same level of support in area I’m working with I would be really mad, but thankfully other MS teams have great people to work with.

          • BillyHoWCR

            Yes… I am retired and instead of fishing I enjoy my video game hobbies. Playing, game coding, internet media gathering… etc. Keeps me entertained.

            “Simply want to understand why Microsoft is trying so badly to keep bad reputation.” the issue with this statement is that Sony fanboys are the one’s that think MS has a bad reputation while those who own Microsoft products know better.

            MS is far from the greatest company ever but they have a great XBL service and their ability to keep it up and running is superior.

            While your thoughts on how they should have handled this single incident are far from correct in any form. You might not like how they handled it but it doesn’t effect you does it? Even the guy that got banned said he understands the issue and has no ill will towards the situation. So if he doesn’t have issue with it then why do you?

          • angh

            I guess you are missing the point. Microsoft xbox one presentation back in spring was widely criticised because of heavy drm, always online policy, integrating kinect and so on. That is the reputation about this product I’m talking about. And this leaded to many changes done rapidly in last few months. What is funny, the Xbox features were actually quite nice, simply MS didn’t articulate them properly and they didn’t clarified anything for weeks. Finally, even MS decided that was bad and did a turn, still, no clarification. This heavily weights on the bad opinion. Not because someone is a fan of other company (And if I would be a fanboy of something, that would be a PC).
            I’m not saying MS is bad. I’m spending years on Visual Studio, servers and so on and I’m in contact with MS engineers all the time. Great people. What the quality of XBL service matter to method of handling a problem? MS is great, but the Xbox team not so much.
            And the handling of a problem by big corporation is something every one of us should be vary. If you giving away your consumer rights just because this one doesn’t affect you directly, next time when something happens to you you may find yourself out of the support. If a pharmaceutical corporation lays waste illegally in middle of Maryland, you arent affected by this, but if you wont support these people they will be quiet if something like that will happen close to you. That how the MS was pushed to change their DRM policy, and basically that’s how ‘democracy’ works.
            Simply thing – put meaningful, nice message instead of pejorative ban. It is doable, corporation should treat us with respect, putting a ban is always a form of punishment.
