Current List of Revoked XBox 360 Consoles Now Available

Current List of Revoked XBox 360 Consoles Now Available 100°
305w ago - Today xorloser has shared a current list of revoked XBox 360 consoles on his blog.

To quote: Everyone has heard about the Xbox360 bans that stop a console from connecting to Xbox Live, however not many people realise that Xbox360 consoles can also be revoked.

Below you can find a list of all the currently revoked consoles at the time of the Fall'08 system update release. Read on to find out why and how an Xbox360 gets revoked and what effect it has.

Fall'08 Console Revocation List Contents
This is a list of the Console IDs of the 433 Xbox360 consoles that had been revoked when the Fall'08 update was released.

WHY?
There are many reasons why your Xbox360 could get revoked, but generally it means you have done something to piss off MS. So the best way to keep from being revoked? Don't do anything liable to piss off MS.

An example of a cause for revocation is the public sharing of your gamesaves or other similar files from your Xbox360 hard drive. This includes making publicly available "resigned" versions of these kinds of files. In order to be revoked you have to have done something that involves your Console ID so that MS has the ID required for revocation.
 

Bushing Reports on Returning Modified Wii Consoles for Repair

Bushing Reports on Returning Modified Wii Consoles for Repair 400°
306w ago - It seems that Nintendo is now charging almost to full price for a Nintendo Wii if you've installed unsigned code on the machine that resulted in a 'bricked' console.

To quote: I've been asked whether installing the Homebrew Channel (or Twilight Hack or whatever) will void the warranty on a Wii. I've generally said something like "Technically, yes, but I doubt they will enforce that."

This seemed reasonable, given some of the anecdotes I've heard – stories of people ruining their drives with a soldering iron and still getting free repair work done under warranty, etc. I've also said that if a Wii is bricked (and won't boot), then they have no way of actually checking to see what is installed on the Wii – and I still believe that to be true, at least most of the time.

I'll be the first to admit that was wrong, given some recent evidence. My German's pretty bad, but I see ".... Softwarehack ... EUR 210″. That seems awfully excessive, given that the price of a new Wii is EUR 250, no?

I would write this off as an isolated incident – maybe someone installed some truly awful warezloading hack. However, I was sent the following email through an anonymous remailer last month, and it would seem to support the invoice above:

Sony Refuses to Replace Backwards-Compatible PS3 Consoles

Sony Refuses to Replace Backwards-Compatible PS3 Consoles 750°
307w ago - A TAWKN (linked above) user who goes by dn2500f has had his 80GB PS3 with backwards-compatibility at Sony's repair center in Ontario, Canada for three weeks now.

Sony apparently only offered to give him a new model 80GB PS3, which does not include PS2 support (over 1,900 PS2 games that he can no longer play).

To quote: Today he called in to get a status update and was told that it was beyond repair, and because Sony doesn't make that model anymore they can't replace it... despite the fact that he bought four years' worth of Sony Care extended warranty for it, for a total of five years.

They offered to give him a new model 80GB PS3.

He argued with them that he is not just losing a PS3, but PS2 support (that's over 1900 PS2 games that he can no longer play), extra USB ports, plus the built-in card readers. Sony's reply? Too freaking bad. (Not a direct quote, obviously).

This guy is very angry at Sony, and rightfully so. They didn't offer him anything but a far inferior model than what he bought about 12 months ago, which he says is unacceptable - and I agree.

At the VERY least, they should be trying to make up for this to him and other users who paid $100 extra for a console that has only one life left to live.

If I were in his situation,...
 

Credit Card & Adult Material Left on Used Circuit City Consoles

Credit Card & Adult Material Left on Used Circuit City Consoles 50°
309w ago - Anyone who unloaded an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 during the dying days of Circuit City had best hope they deleted all their private information, including credit card numbers and adult material, because it turns out that Circuit City didn't.

To quote: Kotaku was contacted by a reader who works in a refurbishing facility that bought some of Circuit City's stock of pre-owned Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, DS and PSP systems when the company went under.

The terms of the deal specified that the systems would be in working order, "with maybe a few components missing."

It may or may not come as a surprise depending on your own particular bias toward the company but Circuit City apparently failed to live up to its end of the bargain: 217 of 227 Xbox 360 and 167 of 205 PlayStation 3 consoles received in the deal were "non-functioning."

Bad enough in itself, perhaps, but things got even uglier when the center started repairing and testing the consoles. When the systems were taken online to check their connectivity, many of them suddenly started popping up with friend...
 

Dinner Dash to Hit XBox 360, PS3 and Wii Consoles This Summer

Dinner Dash to Hit XBox 360, PS3 and Wii Consoles This Summer 50°
310w ago - Dinner Dash is coming to downloadable platforms this summer- your girlfriend will be ecstatic!

Diner Dash will be making its way to the Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and WiiWare this summer, courtesy of Hudson Entertainment.

The popular franchise, featuring Flo the waitress and her efforts towards making a junky diner a success, has sold more than 2 million units to date.

"We're delighted to bring Flo and Diner Dash to new gen consoles for the first time," said Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product Development at Hudson Entertainment. "Players have fallen in love with the award-winning series because of its quirky characters and fast-paced fun."

On consoles, Diner Dash will be a 3D affair with players being given the ability to take direct control of Flo. Success will come to those that can seat customers, take orders and deliver food as efficiently and quickly as possible.

If you are a Diner Dash fan and prefer the old point-and-click style of gaming, that option will be available as well. Multiplayer modes will also be available with a Team Dash for 8 players or a two player face off.
