I currently have two 360s and neither of them are modded nor have been repaired by non MS locations. One is a refurbed Pro that MS sent me when my first Pro RRoD’ed. The second is an Arcade with a 60GB drive added all purchased new. I also have a Official 64MB memory card. I have an 8 yr old daughter that plays game demos and Rock Band as well as other family games.
I have been thinking about buying her a TV and a DVD player for her room. While reading the Consumerist.com, I came across an article about the recent bannings and the posters feeling that it was a false positive. One of the forum poster suggested selling the 360 on EBay with a notice that it had been banned and buy a new one.
Banned ones are going for under $60. I got to thinking that since they can play the XBOX games, I bought, as well as DVDs that maybe I could get her one of those for her room. I am not looking for a modded one just one that is cheap (therefore most likely banned) I do have a few questions/concerns about this.
MOST IMPORTIANT!!! I would like to have the banned XBOX on the network in order to push video to it from a PC. Is there any danger of my other 360s or user accounts getting banned because of the banned 360?
Would my daughter be able to use a memory card (official one not USB or 3rd party) to transport her profile/saved games from the non-banned 360 to the banned one and vis-a-versa without risk of the profile getting banned?
In a nutshell, I want to use a cheap but banned XBOX as a DVD player, offline XBOX game player, and multimedia from PC box. I also do not want the banned 360 to jeopardize my legit 360s.
I am not willing to drop another $200 for a brand new arcade version to have just those functions.
Please let me know if there is anything that I would have to be careful about.
I contact XBOX email support and have only gotten cut and paste responses. I posted on thier message boards and have not gotten any responses.
Does anyone here have any suggestions or experiences with this?
Thank you for your time.
