Re: WARNING, REPLACEMENT 360s remove your offline games

The answer to this problem was previously published in the Xbox Live Marketplace: Frequently Asked Questions page but it seems they removed it as I can’t see it anymore under the "Premium Content" section. I found a copy on Elle’s Xbox 360 Space (full article); here some excerpts:

To play the full version of any Xbox Live Arcade game that you’ve downloaded, you must:

  • Play it on the console to which it was originally downloaded, or
  • If on another console, be signed in to Xbox Live with the profile that downloaded the full game.

If you don’t meet either of these criteria, the game will slip into demo mode.

I remember reading some articles in other places back in the early days of the Xbox 360 and that some guys managed to get their accounts restored by the support service after extensive and detailed complaining so they actually could play the games offline again after plugging their old hard drive into their new (replaced) console. Not mentioned though how that was realised and also there have been reports where support did not provide that service (anymore).
