if i buy one.. and when i try to get it online its banned or whatever happens to them that stops you playing online... is it possible to unban it... if you speak to microsoft or something and explain that you have just purchased it or what how does it work.

 

I believe it's banned by MAC address, which you can't change.

 

I've never heard of MS unbanning a machine. Once it's banned, it's banned for good.

Ask the seller a question, if you have proof in writing from him that it's not banned and it turns out otherwise you will be able to open a dispute with ebay.

 

I cant imagine many of them are banned anyway? Thats like being wary of buying a used car incase it has an angry snake in the boot.
