I believe you cannot go online on a hacked console, is this correct?

No, thats incorrect. most releases are stealth cracked. You can play on live with stealth cracked games.

-By comparison, pirating games on a PC requires an internet connection, patience, and then installation. All of the pirating is done for you, and I've seen some very computer illiterate retards play pirated games.

-Piracy is severely impacting PC game sales. Consoles, however, have a MUCH smaller percentages of pirates (though the handhelds seem to be significantly higher than the standalone consoles, still nowhere near PC levels).
by tech savy you mean, people just need to be able to use google...if they can't do that..then well

Also if i am not mistaken, pirated games can be played online on the Console, where as PC, there is no chance without a valid serial key.

Most of my friends have already cracked there 360/psp.

Apparently you can Jakup. Unlike PC games where a valid key is needed to get online, a pirated console has no limitation on playing online. So a Pirated 360 CoD4 player can play online where as a Pirated PC Cod4 will only be able to play the singleplayer and will not be able to get online without a valid key, and the only way to get one is through a purchase of the product.

We've got a couple of kids in our neighborhood that download 360 games claiming their playing a bunch of games that are currently unreleased. Think I might have to stop over and check out exactly how they do this and what kind of "tech savvy" one needs to do this because really, they're dumb as all get out.

I'm wondering CliffyB's fuss about pirating actually encourages people to start pirating on consoles now. If so, that's pretty shame on CliffyB and people who pirates. They're all acting like immature kids trying to prove who's right.

They're the reason why we get DRM and all stuff. No wonder Microsoft is considering about digital distribution for their next console.

Him throwing a fit and acting like a little girl about PC piracy sure ain't gonna help the cause - especially when the resources for pirating on the console are out there. I think alot of people might just say "Oh yea, watch this weasel" and do it just to spite him.

To me it sounds like the recipe is set for piracy to start exploding on the 360. I had always thought you'd get banned from Live but I guess that isn't necessarily the case?

I believe you do infact get banned. AFAIK, this has been around since Microsoft started LIVE. Microsoft always bans Modded Xboxes so they can't access LIVE. Considering how LIVE is though, you wouldn't lose a whole lot.

Nope, friends of mine are using modded 360s on live now. As long as the game has a stealth patch for it you can go online and not get banned.

Cliffy B is living his rockstar lifestyle in his mansion with his supermodel girlfriends in a pool of money. Currently doing phone interviews about gears 2 and how you can stomp kill on locust bad guys in totally different ways, with more blood.

Cliffy - Looks like "all your games belong to us".

Console games are easier to pirate due to the lack of changing DRM like PCs have. You dont need a new no DVD fix (crack) everytime a patch comes out. Once the device is cracked you are all set to pirate away! Its not just the XBOX360 either - PSP, Wii, DS, etc can all be hacked to allow backups to be played.

I've known this but seeing more and more on console piracy recently is really amusing considering the way CliffyB just loves to attack the platform that gave him his start. I didn't realize that so many upcoming 360 games (Fracture, Saints Row 2, NBA 2K9, Blitz: The League II, and now Fallout 3) has already been pirated! Even GOW2 has been leaked! (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost...postcount=1045)

Here's hoping CliffyB actually sees that article.

You fail.
