Banned Xbox One Players Lose all of their Games

Recently confirmed by @XboxSupport on twitter, if your account has been banned you will lose the license to any games attributed to that account.

@dohertymark If your account is banned, you also forfeit the licenses to any games that have licenses tied to it as listed in the ToU. ^AC

— Xbox Support (@XboxSupport1) June 14, 2013

This news comes as yet another blow to the perceived attack on gamers... (Xbox One)

Update There have been multiple updates to this article, each with varying importance. However, the final update sums up most of it.

"Larry Hyrb, aka Major Nelson, in a video interview with Reddit, has clarified banning and other tough topics. Within one minute of the video he is asked whether banned users will lose access to their games, in which he responds “absolutely not.”

So it looks like Banned users will not lose their disc based games. We will see for sure how the rest of it shakes out once the full Xbox One Terms of Service are released. So until then, keep calm and know that the people at Microsoft, while not always on message, are not stupid.

Holy sh.... it just gets worse and worse.

Activation/authentication codes are tied to your account, once that account is banned your rights to that game are gone with it.

They can fix this buy having ban levels though.
Online ban
Specific game ban
System ban
Account ban
User ban

With the account ban you also lose your Live Gold subscription, something you also paid for.

It'd be a good idea to simply... not get banned, is it really all that hard not to be a trouble maker?

true.....trouble makers should be banned...
but.....to take something you paid for is just rape.
But.....if banned for piracy you should lose access to thos pirated games.
BUT the 24 hour check in should solve the piracy problems tho right?
Bobby Kotex  +   441d ago
Yeah trouble makers should be banned, but it's the concept of buying a game without really owning it. This should be of concern to all gamers. If the Xbone is successful it will set a very bad precedent for the future.

It's be a good idea to simply.....buy a PS4 and tell MS what they can do with their Orwellian system.
UNGR  +   441d ago
Don't mod, pretend to mod, say you can mod, or condone modding. That's pretty much it for the list of things that can get you banned from XBL. Steam is the same way, you get banned, your games are gone. Is it a little harsh? No, if you mod your console to gain unfair advantages over other players you should be banned, and now you get the shaft even harder. It's hacker deterrent, I can't complain with that. It's not like a bunch of people would be playing it anyways, but it's a good hacker deterrent

jmc8888  +   441d ago
Hey guys....can we get some people who can actually think discussing this? Pretty please?

Like what exactly is a troublemaker?

Is a trouble maker someone who says 'damn it' after getting killed in a FPS?

Or saying something not approved by Obama, republicans, MS, or facebook?

Again what exactly is a troublemaker?

Shouldn't it be more like....doing something illegal, rather then being a troublemaker.

..and now you know why this country is FUCKED. Because people let the criminals get away scot free, and yet lower the standards about themselves to asinine arbitrary standards that are meaningless, such as 'troublemakers'.

I mean we all know that the head of 343 studios wanted to ban players for not toeing the line while playing Halo 4.

We know Kinect 2 will be spying on you, that the data will be collected, and MS has already admitted that FACT.

We also know (obviously) that Microsoft just announced they like the earlier lying Fuckerberg of Suckbook that yes they were giving away our data.

That MS has had backdoors in Windows for the gov't since Windows 95.

People need to get their head out of their asses.

Uhh, the 24hr check-in takes care of modding, so banning an account is going to cover behavior issues. Unless you of course mod your system and only plan to play for up to 23.99 hours afterwards, then yes, I'm sure the ban will cover that as well. But to say this is to stop modding is plain stupidity. I think there should definitely be something in place to curb annoying players, but not this.

What happens when dad's at work and his son jumps into a shooter and just does everything that children are known for doing? If said child get's his fathers account banned, then he loses out on all his hard earned cash for something he didn't even do.
FamilyGuy  +   441d ago
If you do something ban-worthy that's a "trouble maker", I'm obviously using the term in the context of this discussion and not some broader the-country-is-going-to-sh^t sort of way.

You can get banned for

Hacking
Modding
Stealing
Abusive behavior
Indecent behavior
Threatening people
Obscene messaging
Stalking

Being annoying is not in the category of trouble makers and neither is the occasional use of slightly vulgar language as jmc8888 decided to use in his example.

MikeMyers  +   442d ago
Perhaps people will now think twice before acting like an idiot on Xbox Live. Before you could play your games offline, not anymore. The system needs an internet connection at least once every 24 hours. I can just imagine all the phone calls to Microsoft about how they were banned unfairly.

This will bring up another issue, selling used Xbox One systems. How will this work if you've been banned? I imagine one possibility is to have authorized dealers wipe the slate clean (format the hard drive). You're probably only going to be able to sell your old system through the same places that allow used games for sale.

Gameratheart  +   441d ago
I was an Xbox gamer for over ten years. I preordered a ps4 at best buy yesterday... Ms can go away.... If I want to play offline, let me, it's my choice. Keep that atrocious xboxnone... For you current Xbox fanboys who will say I never was an Xbox fanboy, my gamer tag is : tonymontana530 , I have almost 50,000 achievement points, so, yes, I played my 360 a lot. It was my favorite. But, after all the nonsense that ms is doing, all the check ins to big brother, just to get daily permission to play what you already paid for? ... I'll be happy to move over to the playstation camp... And I'm excited to get my hands on it. I hope the x1 crashes and burns, sending a clear message to the entire industry, that we don't want any of this, and will not stand for it... So, for this gen, I'll be a ps4, and wiiu gamer. Sorry ms, you blew it.
BaconBits  +   441d ago
I agree with Gameratheart. I have had an xbox since day one of the first one. Have had live since day one. This is the first time I will be giving it a miss. I have had PS since day one as well but always played xbox for the online. All this news has really put me off MS and although I am sure some of it will turn out ok or be changed, I just can't see myself putting anymore money down on MS. I will continue to use my 360 for now but next gen - I think I will just stick with PS4 and PC - at least until the smoke clears.

Lol. With the ammo you have for trashing the policies that people seem to hate with the xbox one, do you really have to lie about this being aimed at normal people? The policy is going to be the same as it was with the 360. Don't cheat or hack and you will be ok.
SignifiedSix91  +   441d ago
Glitchers, hackers and racist kids deserve to be banned and lose all their games. Maybe it'll teach them a lesson.

Steam did this a long time ago. You get caught hacking, and you lose your right to play in all VAC secured servers, rendering your games useless.

Microsoft just took it to a whole new level, which is even better. Those people don't deserve to be gamers if their going to sit and cheat.
Dannehkins  +   441d ago
Surely this has to be illegal? I can't understand being banned from online, but to ban from all those games?

I hate rude people online as much as anyone, but to ban them from all their games? I'd never want that on anyone - they paid for those games and they are entitled to play them and I don't Microsoft or anyone else for that matter should have a say in whether you can play them or not.

Lest they figure out THEY are the troublemakers...AFTER they get banned.

I find it funny that the people being targeted are believing in the sophistry that this is 'good'.

But I find it more sad that after all of what we've seen the last 20 years, people are still just as gullible that they initially see this as a plus, not a clampdown that will affect them.

Oh you said you don't believe in arming Al-Qeada in Syria? Ban

Oh you don't believe in Bill Gates genocidal depopulation scheme...ban.

You say 'oh shit' because you fell off a cliff somewhere in a map...banned.

It's all for your protection.

Difference being that your discs are now account locked with Xbone.

Your account gets banned your disc becomes useless.
TheUndertaker85  +   441d ago
I'm going to ask why you can't. The games are already activated on PS3. Assuming you don't deactivate there's no reason to reactivate and your games... They'll still work all around assuming you aren't playing something like MAG and that it's digital. If you have the disc, poof. That argument goes out the window.

You already paid for them.

greenlantern2814  +   441d ago
the reason your disc may not work is because they are not only locked to your account but to that xbox1.
TheUndertaker85  +   441d ago
@greenlantern2814: thus why I didn't use the Xbox One as an example. The reply was directed at the poster insinuating that the same applies to the Xbox 360 & PS3. While I don't know about the 360, the terms they're talking about in the article do not apply to the PS3 by any means unless you deactivate/delete the purchasing account from the system and the games are digital.

Physical discs will still continue to work regardless of a ban. The only thing you stand to lose there possibly is your online passes, but again as long as the game data isn't deleted or you don't remove the purchasing account that's not even an issue. Reports seem to say otherwise for the Xbox One as like a previous poster said, these discs are being locked to your account then downloaded to the HDD.

When I game, I game because I can blow off steam. That may include, but not be limited to, cursing when I shoot someone in the face, or saying something inappropriate when I get mad. See I'm a human and no more immune to emotional response than anyone else.

But you go ahead and defend big brother banning you and then stealing your games. Because that's what adults do, right?

Like you.

You're misbehaving right now. Lending support to tyranny under the guise of politeness.

Despotism has been made possible because of people who were built like you. In other lands. In other times....coming to a time and place near you soon.

Besides what is 'behave'...and where is it in the constitution. (hey maybe you'll have to read it for the first time)

You keep using these terms that don't matter...childish and whatnot.

Oh but you're not being nice calling someone a 'noob'...I guess you should be banned. See how this works?

The first amendment DOES say that, you need to read it.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances"

Where is your silly list of things not supposedly free speech?

Why do people think they'll be banned now?

I don't know because maybe we're living in fascist world? Where people can be 'banned' for no reason, or stupid crap such as 'misbehaving' whatever that means....and people like you support it and think nothing wrong with it to the point where you don't even know the first amendment anymore.

Human beings also have the ability to know what is right and wrong and yelling at people whether it's in real life or behind some anonymous microphone is wrong and childish despite you thinking you are an adult.

If that is your thing, yelling at random people and calling them names. If that is your only way of blowing off steam then turn your mic off. Problem solved, unless you want people to know what a noob you are and how you can't handle loss in an adult manner.

And give the constitution a rest, the first amendment does say you have the right to free speech but it doesn't say you have the right to say hurtful, derogatory nonsense and just being a plain a$$hole.

I would think they would just deactivate your licenses, I doubt they could just take away what you have already purchased in disc form so it couldn't be used again on another account.

After going onto Twitter and searching "@dohertymark", you can find all the comments(they are dated for June 13th) and to me it seems like if you get banned all games are gone even if you have the discs because @Xboxsupport links them to a page that says,

"Here are our platform policies and capabilities for game licensing – all of which will be made available when Xbox One launches later this year:"

It does seem rather confusing so correct me if I'm wrong because to me the way I see it is, if your banned you don't have a license anymore which means no games since they are licensing them to you

But truth be told, it sure as hell makes people think twice about acting like jerks and trolls on Live.

But the only problem is many people got banned for things as small as a name they felt was derogatory. If that happens on Xbox One with the fact that the game discs you buy only serve as installers could mean if you got banned, your disc is nothing more than a frisbee after that.

Microsoft better clear that up and fast.

Holy God.
Can it get any worse than this??! I really feel sorry for the uninformed people who are going to by this.. this thing.

While this is kind of stupid, you really shouldn't be doing any thing to get banned in the first place.

What if Microsoft just thinks you did something to get banned for but you didn't? They have banned people in the past and the people claimed they did nothing. They don't seem to listen.

Ive seen gangs of people team up and file false reports on other players for abuse and stuff. When so many number of complaints are filed M$ doesnt even check the validity they just ban based on the high number of claims. its nearly an automated thing
