The Xbox Laws

There are laws that every Xbox 360 owner must abide by…unspoken laws if you will.  UNSCRIPTED XBOX is proud to present those laws.

The Xbox Laws* (formerly known as Xbox 360 Laws)

Upholders of the Xbox Laws make up the Council of Enforcers and they sit around what is known as the Xbox Table to discuss and approve these laws.  I am proud to be amongst the Council of Enforcers and to take my spot sitting in a chair around the Xbox Table.  If you are someone who uses computers and consoles on a regular basis then you will be familiar with rules, laws and regulations.

The Founder

DEACON – Founder of the original 7 Xbox 360 Laws; identified below with (F). Through his vision the 360 Table was formed to seat all those who are bearers of the great responsibility of enforcing the 360 Laws.  Mr. Deacon has gone on record against many 360 Law offenders and has taken them all to justice thus solidifying his rightful spot at the Table.

He was also the first to strike down the ‘Ken Exception’ to the Barbie Horse Adventure 360 Law.  With great power comes great responsibility.  With every Xbox 360 and Xbox One comes an Xbox Law.

*modified for Xbox One

The Council of Enforcers

The Council of Enforcers are plenty.  They sit beside the Founder at the Xbox Table.  Enforcers carry the Xbox Laws with them at all times to cite violations on a whim.  Who are the Enforcers?  As the Enforcers check in, they’re added to the roster.

The Xbox Laws

1. 360 Law (F): Barbie Horse Adventures should only be played on an original Xbox.  ONLY test its backward compatibility on an Xbox 360 if you are in possession of a child 7 years old or younger.  The ‘Ken Exception’, a movement that if Ken Horse Adventures were released it could be played, was struck down.

2. 360 Law (F): Under no circumstances will you put stickers on your console.  Unless those stickers are actually a skin that covers the entire console.

3. 360 Law (F): Carrying an Xbox 360 backpack is not cool.

4. 360 Law (F): Never share your hard drive with a friend’s console for more than a day.  Tell him to get his own hard drive or download his own games.

5. 360 Law (F): Gaming sessions should never last more than 24 hours if someone of the opposite gender is involved.

6. 360 Law (F): Never be close enough to touch knees while gaming with a friend unless that friend is of the opposite gender.

7. 360 Law (F): If you plug it, you own it.  Wired controllers and Play & Charge cables are only to be inserted into the USB by the owner of the console.  Never let anyone touch your wires.

8. 360 Law: No hands but those of the owner shall handle the 360 in any manner.

9. 360 Law: Never abuse the Guide button mid-game.  Abuse includes pressing of the Guide button by a guest without instruction from the host, repeated presses of the Guide button whether accidental or not and other forms of excessive Guide button usage.

10. 360 Law: Your console is not a coaster.  Beverages and snacks must be a minimum of 3 feet away at all times.  A dirty console is a no-no.  Keep it clean.

11. 360 Law: You are not the Velvet Voice and this is not an open tryout for American Idol.  Under no circumstances should you sing into the headset while playing.  Mute yourself for the sake of your fellow gamer playing with or against you.

12. 360 Law: Have a Gamertag that everyone can pronounce.  It is mandatory to upholding the Laws and key to being recognized by the Council and your fellow gamer.  Trying to pronounce ‘xryiopyehzzeaiy’ sucks.  The Council frowns on unspeakable names. You shall provide proper pronunciation of confusing Gamertag whenever prompted or be in violation of said 360 Law.

13. 360 Law: If any person has excessively sweaty hands, they must identify themselves immediately and be issued a hand cover (gloves) or towel to dry hands.  If said person does not have a hand cover or towel, they must supply their own 360 controller.  Also known as the “Sweaty Hands Law”.

14. 360 Law: The Vision Camera is not a dating tool.

15. 360 Law: Halo 2 is not next-gen.  Halo 3 is.  Sending Halo 2 invites after Halo 3 releases or to known next-gen only players is beyond a violation.

16. 360 Law: When the headset is on, NO communication outside of to those involved in the match is possible.  Pass this on to anyone presiding in said household.

17. 360 Law: The GamerchiX Rule. If you disrespect the ladies of gaming; chiX, PMS Clan…you’ll lose major cool points and respect. Obey the T.G.R.!

18. 360 Law: You move it. You lose it. Keep your 360 still! No horizontal to vertical adjustment especially when there’s a game inside. Play it don’t sway it!

19. 360 Law: Hulk no like wasting money on batteries. Hulk like uninterrupted play. Hulk have Play & Charge or Quick Charge kit.  Hulk smash silly Xbox 360 owner with batteries.

20. 360 Law: Official celebrations when unlocking Achievements or other milestones achieved during gameplay include high fives, fist pumps in the air or shouting ‘Yeah!’. At no time do you celebrate with a hug and that includes the mythical ‘man hug’.

21. 360 Law: Forcing the action is a rookie move and you’re not Salt ‘N Pepa. Respect your disc tray. Don’t push it. A legitimate 360 owner uses the eject button, the dashboard or the remote to operate the disc tray.

22. 360 Law: Thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s Xbox 360 or make regular use of it. Get your own!

23. 360 Law: Being full of hot air is only bad during certain times. Breathing into your headset for all to hear is one of them. No psycho breathing unless gaming is directly after strenous cardio workouts.

24. 360 Law: If 3 red LED lights appear to be flashing on the “Ring of Light” of your Xbox 360, the console is not putting on a light show. You must call Xbox Customer Support!

25. 360 Law: Video chatting is fun.  Video chatting while performing any rendition of Risky Business is not fun.  Leave your clothes on when the Vision Camera is on.

26. 360 Law: It’s okay to rumble.  We all like to rumble.  But thou shall not abuse the Xbox 360 controller’s rumble feature for any reason.  It’s just not cool sending a rumble while in video chat.  Not even as a friendly reminder or nudge.

27. 360 Law: We know what you play.  Your Gamercard says so.  No faking the drive on an unplayed game across Xbox Live pretending to have what you don’t.  No play it, no say it.  Also known as the “Gamercard Law”.

28. 360 Law: Xbox 360 Play & Talk 101.  Your Xbox 360 can talk to you.  Play it regularly so it doesn’t think you’re mistreating it.

29. 360 Law: Never play on a friend’s profile unless invited. Gamerscore points are important, so adding unearned points is NOT allowed.  Get your own achievements and points on your own profile and vice versa!

30. 360 Law: When you see your friend’s status as “Watching DVD/Movie”, do not send them a message asking them what movie they are watching.  It’s like being in the theater and someone talks during the good part.  Don’t be that someone to your friend and their Xbox 360 movie.

31. 360 Law: Hell hath no fury like an Xbox 360 gamer being spammed via Xbox Live.  Yes messages are cool but don’t spam your friend’s list without proper spam approval from your friends.  The 360 ain’t ham…so don’t spam!

32. 360 Law: Black controllers and white controllers can be played with on the same console.  Don’t be afraid to mix and match with your Premium or Elite.  It’s like Michael Jackson said, it doesn’t matter if you’re black or white.

33. 360 Law: The Hungry Man Law.  No one wants to hear what you’re eating over Xbox Live.  Mute it before you chew it!

34. 360 Law: No means No!  Take time to refresh yourself in Stalker 101 of the 360 Law manual.  It clearly states that repeatedly sending friend invites and game invites to the same person after being declined are a no-no.

35. 360 Law: Feed your Xbox 360 nice food.  No scratched or greasy discs go into the disc tray!

36. 360 Law: The Gamertag Change Law. I know you.  You know me. Thou shalt send a message to all on your friends list stating your previous Gamertag as well as your new one if you decide to change your handle. Don’t confuse anyone with a new tag.

37. 360 Law: Thou shall not say pwn, pwned, owned, own, noob, froob, nub, nubby nub, u stupid little kid or nerd while getting slaughtered over Xbox Live.

38. 360 Law: The host shall not, under any circumstance, leave a lobby unattended for any longer than it takes to perform a “number one”. If the host needs to leave for longer than a “number one” then he/she needs to inform the room and/or start the game.

39. 360 Law: Thou shall not relate Gamerscore to a gamer’s skill.

40. 360 Law: Thou shall not judge a game by its online play. There is much more to a game than XBOX LIVE.

41. 360 Law: If you want to invite someone to play with you, make sure they have the game before you send out the invite.

42. 360 Law: Never, ever put another company’s console on top of your Xbox 360. Respect the pecking order and keep the 360 on top.

43. 360 Law: There shall not be any horse play around a vertical Xbox 360. You tip it, they don’t fix it.

44. 360 Law: Kidz Rulez. Only those who were never little kids that played video games can ever say anything against little kids that play video games.  (little kids include anyone that hasn’t reached puberty or under the age of 15, whichever comes first)

45. 360 Law: Trash talking has its boundaries no matter how fun. Thou shall not talk trash over the mic if you cannot handle trash being thrown back.

46. 360 Law: Just play the game!  Don’t ruin another Xbox 360 owner’s dream if you get your hands on a copy of a highly anticipated game before it is released to the public. Keep the spoilin’ to the old milk in your fridge at least until its release date.

47. 360 Law: The Rock Rule.  Dancing is approved during play of any Guitar Hero title or Rock Band title. You shall rock properly and perform in front of your 360.

48. 360 Law: Tomato, ToMotto! Keep a clean motto on your gamer card.

49. 360 Law: Thou shall not swing your arms like a crazy man and throw your controller at your TV when you get pwned. Be nice to your accessories and TV.

50. 360 Law: No Cheetos or any form of fingerprinting potato chip shall be eaten before you handle a 360 controller. Orange fingerprints on controllers are teh suck! Wipe ‘em before you snipe ‘em.

51. 360 Law: Painting your Xbox 360 black does not make it Elite.

52. 360 Law: The Sore Loser Law. No one wants to play with a sore loser. Thou shall not blame host, lag, or any outside distractions for losing.

53. 360 Law: Rock Band is for the band.  Only a collection of drummers, a singer, bass and guitar can properly melt faces. I command thee to play Rock Band only with a group!

54. 360 Law: The Golden 360 Law.  Owning a 360 puts you in the circle of trust.  Don’t abuse that!  Treat other players with the same respect that you want for yourself.  Leave the name calling and disrespect in the trash where it belongs and just game on!

55. 360 Law: Let’s play some COD and then after that hit up KUF and maybe even some DMC or PGR later.  OMG WTF.  Say the name, don’t be lame on Xbox Live.  Let’s play some Call of Duty, Kingdom Under Fire, Devil May Cry or Project Gotham Racing.

56. 360 Law: What happens online stays online.  Your non-gaming friends will not know or care about how much you owned on Call of Duty 4 last night.

57. 360 Law: Thou shalt not handle a 360 game disc in any other way than “palming” the disc or using the “finger hole” in the middle. The silver area is for the 360, not your fingers.

58. 360 Law: Read no evil; Hear even less.  Let it be law from this day that any harassment via text or voice will result in losing all gaming privileges.  Play nice and speak even nicer.

59. 360 Law: Friend of Friend Law. Thou shall not send random game invites to the friends of your own friends without permission from your friend or without a message sent prior stating whose friend you both know.

60. 360 Law: Thou shall not kill a 360 even if it is for a YouTube video.  Xbox’s have feelings and want to live long just like me and you.  Protect & respect.

61. 360 Law: Hide & Seek Law.  Thou shalt appear offline if the need arises to sign in and out repeatedly so that your friends don’t have to see “_____ is online” every thirty seconds while they’re trying to concentrate on their game.

62. 360 Law: Master Chief and 360 owners are like peas and carrots.  I layeth upon thee thine Halo 3 Law.  When in doubt, pull a sticky out.

63. 360 Law: Thou shalt not change thy Gamertag in excess of 5 times as it confuses friends and it’s hard to have a nickname.

64. 360 Law: Thou shall refrain from sending one letter/word response messages on Xbox LIVE such as “K” and “Lol.” It just takes too much time to open the message and delete it just for that.

65. 360 Law: Thou shall not post or message random people about how awesome your new Microsoft points generator (phishing) web site is.

66. 360 Law: If you want to trash talk just to be funny, always be sure the other player knows you’re kidding.

67. 360 Law: Don’t send bad feedback just because you got PWNED.

68. 360 Law: If your Gamertag includes any form of “Great” “The Best” “King” or any other bold statement, make sure you can back it up then prove it or change it.

69. 360 Law: Don’t be an ass to noobs. We were all one at one time so just help them out.

70. 360 Law: Your Xbox 360 is more mature than your original Xbox. Do not share accessories between the two unless absolutely needed.

71. 360 Law: Thou shall not send M2AF. Send messages to the folks intended.  Not everyone cares if you’re going to be gone for 3 days.

72. 360 Law: Uninvited party hopping isn’t cool.  Just because it’s open, doesn’t mean it’s open to you so stay out of parties you’re not invited to.

73. 360 Law: When you connect with Kinect, make sure you leave your clothes on.

74. One Law: (TBA)

The Rules

These are the Xbox Laws.  There is an approval process for each law as well as each Council member.  Every submitted law must be examined and verified before making it as an official Xbox Law.  Every potential Enforcer undergoes the most extreme scrutiny so that the Xbox Laws are upheld with dignity.

The Oath

I shall abide by all Xbox Laws both foreign and domestic. I realize that this duty is thrust upon me the minute I claim ownership of an Xbox 360 and I shall willfully learn all current Xbox 360 Laws upon such claim. I further proclaim that I will strike down all offenders of said 360 Laws so that harmony continues to rule over chaos.

“This is my Xbox.  There are many like it but this one is mine. My Xbox is my best console. I must master use of my Xbox as I must master the Xbox Laws. Before all Xbox owners, I swear this creed.”

  1. Never ever let anyone try to move your 360 from horizontal to vertical (just to see the lights change) while a game is being played (ask Metastat and Danero TGAC about this little faux pas). Besides the possibility that the DVD could get a nasty scratch, it just isn’t cool to be moving the system around while it’s on.

  2. 360 Law! ^

  3. would be happy to lay down the law with you any day deac…my sword is yours ;)

  6. When using a shared console thou shalt insure the correct gamertag is logged in, lest false achievements be awarded.

  7. Never open or do anything that will void a warranty or affect your chances of having your console repaired. As a fellow Pittsburgh Steelers fan as is Irishprik411 I always go with him so my sword is yours to deacon.

  9. 1. Thou shall not play strickly Halo 2 in you All Powerful and All Mighty 360. That crap aint next gen.
    2. Thou shall not send another 360 user a Halo 2 message knowing they do not own Halo 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    3. Thou shall not leave thy console deprived of gaming bliss for more than 2 days.
    4. Thou shall not use any 3rd party accessory on thy console unless it is a faceplate or a skin from decalgirl.com!
    5. Thou shall not cut open or even dream of cutting open the beautiful console.
    6. Thou shall not apply anything that is PERMANENT to thy beautiful consoles casing.

  10. lol @ jagr. great dude.

  11. Thou shalt not **** your Xbox 360.

  12. never absolutely ever let your beautiful 360 be replaced by anything other then another xbox and if you get another console dont let him/her see it or youll find your 360 on top of you in the middle of the night staring straight at your eyes with a knife in the dvd tray ………youve been warned

  13. LOL…I like most of Jagr’s ideas.

  14. Thou shalt not install additional lights inside or attached too the console.

  15. Thought I would throw mine on here as well

    No man shall play 360 naked…it isn’t ok for bongos and it isn’t ok for 360.(for girls, go right ahead).

    THe 360 controller should not be used to scratch any place on the players body.

    And last but not least…

    There will be absolutely no crying while playing 360

    BTW great site DeaconBlade

  16. Ye shall accept sole responsibility and accept the “Void Warranty” should thou mod your case. Ye shou then honor your Xbox 360 by leaving it out in the open so that all may gaze upon and worship it.

  17. thanks Tron :) you guys are crazy with some of these lol

  18. I think we can simplify many of these with a blanket statement such as:

    You shall not void the warranty by comitting various acts of modification stupidity.

  19. Thou shal respect thy fellow gamer, and shal not resort to abusive behavior

  20. I suggest thou shall not create your gamertag with numbers in place of letters, and putting i’s and x’s in front of and behind your name is worse than having an unoriginal name.

  21. Xbox 360 Rule: Thou shalt not continuously spam game invites to all on friends list.

  22. Thy GamerTag shall be pronounceable

  23. haha. that one will be really hard to ignore EyeofPalpatine lol

    http://digg.com/gaming_news/Xbox_360_Laws

    oh and be sure to digg it. i want to spread the word.

  24. I would like to propose a new law, The Sweaty hands law.
    If any person has excessively sweaty hands, they must identify themselves immediately and be issued with a hands cover (gloves) If said person does not have a hand cover, they must supply their own control pad.

  25. ^360 Law!

  26. haha nice one dude!

  27. Whoa…moderator goverland took a major dump on your thread on the forums dude.

    I’m going to cite him the misleadership central for it.

  28. This is cool I wanna join the council :)

  29. Thall shall not Send Xbox invites to people playing Xbox 360 games.

    Halo 2 clan invites are punishable by death.

  30. Death is a little bit steep but I’ve blocked communications or removed from friends list the Halo inviters several months back.

  31. A game DVD is not created to be used as either a frisbee or a coaster.
    Thy should only use the 2 propper places for it, being either the DVD tray of thy xbox360 or in the case from witch it came. Do not put it in the wrong case either. This is sacralidge and cannot be allowed under any circumstance.

  32. haha nice on the game DVD.

    @Harper, yeah i’ve blocked a few Halo 2 only friends from communication lol it does get annoying at times.

  33. Haha, these rock. I’ll try to think of some…

  34. Give kids a chance. Not all of them are annoying. If they are, just mute and leave feedback. But seriously, give kids a chance.

  35. Alright…got another. Don’t fall asleep while gaming (especially online). If you’re going to fall asleep, turn the console off and get some rest, seriously.

  36. lol @Echo.

  37. If your 360 is in repairs, kindly tell your friends a message saying it is.

  38. Along with singing, please, do not eat while playing; especially with your mic on. No one wants to hear that.

  39. there’s a 360 Law that accounts for mic abuse ;)

  40. [...] read more | digg story [...]

  41. thanks for digg’n the story guys.

  42. lol…u can never have enough mic laws. :)

  43. Oh comon none of my 6 are laws. Dangit.

  44. the laws haven’t been finalized…some of yours are in it ;)

  45. Wow! How did I not think of this one before? Thou must abide by not criticize the 360 laws. Basic, yet important.

  46. Thou Shalt be proud of the entire 360, including the ‘brick’. It should not be hidden.

    Thou shalt speak when spoken to on the mic. Do not pretend your mic doesn’t work.

    Thou shalt always have a spare set of batteries for the pad close by.

    You shall be gracious in defeat and NOT leave bad feedback. No one likes a sore loser.

    theres my addition. :)
    theres more to come

  47. When on live be respectful of everyone regardless of gender, race, sexual preference its nice to have friends around the world helps with holidays lol

  48. Being an enforcer is cool but I want to be on the Council and be an enforcer.

  49. it’s the same thing lol i just haven’t finished the final product yet..i won’t until i get enough emails/response.

  50. yo Deacon put me on the roster for the enforcers

  51. ok I got one:

    do not deny if you bought the core system, the Core System is ok unless you can trying to pass it off as the platium deal. Core Systems can be told apart for Platiums

  52. we definitely need a Core Law lol not sure what though.

  53. i got a pro system on launch and it broke the lens messed up i just need a new lens but i got a core and i just put all my pro on the core my hardrive the chrome eject drive the only thing you can tell it apart is the eject button its still white i think its unique but im offtopic umm ok every decesion you know make is tied to your xbox if you wana go eat make sure your xbox doesnt have any depression cause its gonna be lonely and then another one is dont be dumb enough to let your poor xbox overheat it looks good when the girls are hot but its bad for your xbox ok latr

  54. When sending messages, always read through and makes sure they are understandable ^^^^^^ lol

  55. oh and Deac, I’m at you service, Counsel or Enforcer, you decide ;)

  56. cool deal Big.

  57. hey i can understand what i wrote ….ohh i get it your jealous of me exquisite typing huh arnt you lol ya i get your point bigisy if you talking to me …. i know what im talking about but i guess i can read over i thought thats what spellcheck was for lol i wish they had makessense check lol ok latr

  58. I really like your laws, and I think these laws would be good, if they’re not set in stone yet.

    * Thou shalt not send game invites to another gamer unless said gamer has the game. Why? Becuase EVERYDAY I get messages from random people asking me to play DOA4, GRAW, and other games I don’t have. So then i have to look them up, and then go one by one, deleting them, and it’s really ANNOYING! Angry [:@]

    * Thou shalt not better of him/herself is said person has a high gamerscore. Gamerscore ONLY shows that you have a lot of money and/or freetime. It does NOT mean your a better gamer.

    * Thou shalt not condone violence whilst playing a game. Everytime me and my friends play Halo 2, they get REALLY competitive. I mean, if it’s 24-24, it can get brutal. We can come in playing Halo 2, and end up like we’ve just played Fight Night: Real Life.

  59. good Laws Kyd! if you’re in support of them, be sure to send me an email…i’m making a master list to do something really cool with these Laws ;)

  60. heres one:

    Thou shall not treat the Core System less than the Pro System. The Core can become like the Pro System.

  61. @Crowley, you’re safe on the 7 1/2 year old..you almost violated the first Founding 360 Law! lol

  62. 360 Law:

    Do not strike an Xbox 360 controller or use an Xbox 360 to strike anything. Anger may be taken out in an acceptable manner by punching a wall or wooden coffee table with your fist.

    Addendum: Striking a 3rd party Xbox 360 controller, such as the DOA4 arcade stick because Alpha 152 beat you for the 50th time or because the 3rd party controller is of sub-par quality, is acceptable.

  63. This might have been said already but im just gonna say it,

    Xbox 360 Wireless Controller is not to be used to play a game while in the bathroom

  64. lol nice ones on the controllers. i’ll be making some additions to the existing Laws soon. and i will assume that by posting here you all are in support right?

  65. No man who owns a Xbox 360 shall play music by Britney Spears, Nsync, or the Back Street Boys while useing the 360

  66. Get your own Hardrive. Do not share a Hardrive between you and your friend. If you want the Hardrive you/your friend should have bought the Pro System or Bought the HD.

    Execption: You may share a Hardrive if you want to play a arcade game or DLC

  67. see 360 Law # 4 Brass ;)

  68. What about…”Respect those with a better gamerscore than you, they play more games than you. Respect those with a worse gamerscore than you, they are better at life than you.”

  69. whoops man Im slow

  70. lol at amba thats a good one.

    I think we need one about not insulting the coin op classics on the arcade…I mean they are classics not next gen.

  71. the official oath has been added :)

  72. Could i become an Enforcer Deacon? :)

  73. as long as you take The Oath and you did. welcome to The Enforcers.

  74. WOOT!! Thanks Deacon!!:D

  75. Woot! Im an enforcer!!

  76. yep..you took the Oath ;)

  77. just a small note for you guys and gals. over 5,300 inquiries have come in to see what the 360 Laws are since being established.

    Xbox 360 Laws are sweeping the community!

  78. I think my oath was better but, I like this one.

  79. Can i become an enforcer deacon?

  80. you sure can death. what’s your Gamertag?

  81. Im itchin to tell em out secret Deac, its a goodie

  82. don’t. lol it wouldn’t be worth it to spoil it. it would only taint the list of Enforcers/Council.

  83. Nice laws. I would also like to be an enforcer if there is more room.

  84. whoever takes the Oath is in…whoever shows support for the 360 Laws is in :)

    what’s your Gamertag?

  85. I know, but its so kool

  86. even if i said the secret, no one would believe me

  87. yes they would. so keep it tight lipped.

  88. Thou Shalt be proud of the entire 360, including the ‘brick’. It should not be hidden.

    Thou shalt speak when spoken to on the mic. Do not pretend your mic doesn’t work.

    Thou shalt always have a spare set of batteries for the pad close by.

    You shall be gracious in defeat and NOT leave bad feedback. No one likes a sore loser.

  89. I like that last one, but if your gunna talk about batteries, it should be “thou shalt not waste money on batteries, get a play n charge kit. Something like that.

  90. I like it the way it is.

  91. my gamertag is Blu3 Rag3

  92. just tossing an idea out but..
    “Only the owner of the 360 can use the mic unless thou is permitted”
    just an idea

  93. omg! i wanna know the secret!!

  94. I don’t know what the secret is, but I don’t wanna know it. I let Deacon choose when to tell us. What did NBAfreak do to get a secret outta Deac? Torture you?

  95. nah he just caught me on a good night during Live chat lol

  96. awwhhhh…..when are ur good nights? lol jk. Could u give us a hint?…..

  97. Thou shall not use cheat codes for any purpose.

  98. Thou shall not use xbox 360 vision cam to show off his dance moves unless a female.

  99. Thou shall not dance at all with vision cam on

  100. Hey Deacon add me to the enforcers list if u have time

  101. This is a quote for the move Taladega Nights which IMO was a pretty bad movie. But i think this should be a 360 law.
    “If ya ain’t first your last”

  102. haha good one w/Ricky Bobby

  103. WOAH! I just saw the list of enforcers. Just got like 2x Bigger! Cool.

  104. it’s actually a lot bigger but i can’t list them all..i’m working on a master list though of people who support the Laws :)

  105. my friends were threating my 360 with soday so i saved it in the nic of time

  106. o yeah and sry for my spelling (im surprised i passed 1st grade)

  107. my games tag is death knowz

  108. Have a new law suggestion: Thou shou not whine that the Xbox 360 has not a Web Browser built in. Just because the PS3 and Wii have it, doesn’t mean the Xbox 360 needs it. The Xbox 360 is a Game Console which enhances your Media Center 2005 / Vista Entertainment Experience, it is not a computer replacement.

  109. what if a browser is included?? :(

  110. If Microsoft or XBL makes an “official” announcement about a web browser on the XB360, I will defiantly review all of the technical specifications on it before I use it. I’ve been a Desktop Support Tech for 12 years since Windows 95, and ever since then IE has had a lot of severe vulnerabilities patched and re-patched and more are being discovered and exploited today. I don’t think anyone wants their XB360 to get a virus, which is very likely with any browser.

  111. i’m not a fan of a browser! we need a virus Law for sure lol

  112. this is sweet, i’ll post my fanboy law that in put on the forums:

    Thou shall keep all fanboy/fangirlism to a minimum.

  113. haha Halfblood..i don’t think that’s possible to keep to a minimum in the world of gaming.

  114. I have been enforcing the rules here in the middle east. I posted on the xbox forms- 360 laws- and would like to be a part of the cause. We need to stand together or sit on our couches and make the 360 wold a better place.

  115. middle east?? nice!!

  116. Dont want to say where im at but its a big giant sand box.

  117. no worries my friend. i’m a former Marine so i understand. i’ve been over there..Camp Doha, Bahrain, UAE, Kuwait etc..i know it sucks lol

  118. My uncle flew 41 combat missions in Desert Storm. He’s a Marine and now he’s an astronaut! You can read his bio here:http://www.jsc.nasa.gov/Bios/htmlbios/sturckow.html

  119. DeaconBlade jsut want to say you have a great site and Im happy to be a part of it. Also good work with the Livestrong face plate-there has been bad new about that though.

  120. damn i wish i had my 360…

  121. Oh man, I’m too late to be an enforcer. Oh well, cool concept. Favorite one: Xbox Live Vision camera is NOT a dating tool. LOL that made me laugh.

  122. it’s never too late Snake. you support them…you have a 360…you’re in.

  123. Thou shall not exchange your scratched disk, for one rented at thy local game rental store.

  124. you shall not bring a sony/nintendo product near 5 feet of the console, for it will transform and destroy your house.

  125. When you are a guest on another Xbox 360, under no cirumstance what so ever should you attempt to take control of the menu navigation in that dashboard or a video game. Doing this shows extreme disrespect towards the owner.

  126. lol good one Pigeon.

  127. 360 Law: Forcing the action is a rookie move and you’re not Salt ‘N Pepa. Respect your disc tray. Don’t push it. A legitimate 360 owner uses the eject button, the dashboard or the remote to operate the disc tray.

    Who ever made that one is a very wise man.

  128. lol yep..that Pistol came up with a good one ;)

  129. You have to apply some type of 360 law for wifes, girlfriends, spouces who demand attention during your gaming session.

  130. 360 Law: When the headset is on, NO communication outside of to those involved in the match is possible. Pass this on to anyone presiding in said household.

    we have something that applies to all ;) boyfriends, girlfriends etc…this covers that lol

  131. keep sony hardware 3 feet away. nintendo is okay, it doesn’t pose a threat.

    Wii60!!!

  132. over 8,000 and counting guys/gals!! amazing interest and support for the Xbox 360 Laws!

  133. hellz yeah!

    thou shall only call people that are acting like idiots n00bs, and not new people.
    i cant think today.

  134. How bout this one:

    Thou shalt not take the name of thy Xbox 360 in vain whilst losing a deathmatch on thy hallowed Xbox Live. It is the fault of the skill of oneself, not of thy 360.

  135. in other words, DONT BLAME THE CONSEL!

  136. Throwing of thy controller is the right of thine controller’s owner. A player who does not own thine controller and throws thee controller shall be punishable by owner and is subject to dishing out thine cash to replace said controller.

  137. He who smudges the chrome, cleans the chrome

  138. currently 118 members on the Council of Enforcers :)

  139. How does one join the council? I have some rules that would really benefit todays laws regarding the Xbox 360? Please let me know.

  140. you’re already in Pigeon…just show support, have an Xbox 360 and you’re in ;)

  141. nice laws, good interesting read to pass time while at work waiting to go home and play my 360.
    Wish all would follow these.

  142. thx for checking them out oddball ;)

  143. yay, i should get my 360 by the end of september.

    but i got football till the end of november :(

  144. Yesterday I had to stop one mental giant from wrecking one of the few games left we have on our camp were down to 3-4 not very good games. He just didnt comprehend that its not ok to move the 360 while a game was in. I had to even break it down to the point of explaining that the disc is spinning around 5000rpm, then he was like ohhhh. Then he proceeded to put an open water bottle on top of it. I said out loud “We cant ever have nice things around here”. Everyone looked at me then I looked at him and said do you really think its the best idea to put your water on the 360. He took it off. The ladies at the MWR (recreation building) thanked me for being so helpful and have now made me the resident game expert. They even came to me for what games they need to order for the future.

  145. good deal chewy ;)

  146. ARGGHH the thread was locked. Why did Frag post in this topic.

  147. i’m going to be posting the master list so far sometime this week :)

  148. i dunno if you saw this DeaconBlade, but on the xbox forums i perposed a add on to the dont use your friends 360 everyday law. i add on would see that that law would also cover 360 Demos at stores.

  149. explain that one again Dark?

  150. Hes saying don’t use the 360s in retail stores.

  151. srry, i was tired when i wrote that. dont always go to retail stores and just play there demos over and over again.

  152. oh lol. how else would they try it though?

  153. no, like hes saying like not to try but just as a free console. Its kinda odd if ya aske me.

  154. Dont shoot paintballs at your xbox 360 console.

  155. Dont hook up a xbox 360 to a tv smaller then your shoes.

  156. To DeaconBlade,

    i mean ppl how just sit there abd play the demos for like an hour, then you hear them talking about how they have there own, of they just go to the store and just play the demo (for an hour).

    sad part is, ive seen it.

  157. i get what Halfblood is saying..so it’s like they’re pretending that they have a 360 but they only play the kiosks. lol

  158. Nice addition, you should also extend that with broken mics should be unplugged. No one wants to hear that static it makes

  159. Coolness. Just noticed I’ve been added to the list of Enforcers. Niiiiice!

  160. yep you sure did EcHo :)

  161. i’m with ya holmes!

  162. No one likes my broken mic rule? I think its worse then the breathing

  163. I love this one: 360 Law: Xbox GamerchiX. You disrespect. You lose respect. The boys like to play with the girls. Obey this.

    what if I share with my hubby?? Do I have to wait until I finally get mine?? LOL….

  164. nah…you’re in Twylyght ;)

  165. Sweet!! Thanks Deacon, you are awesome!!!

  166. “When a 360 owner is demonstrating the wonders of his/her XBOX 360 to a new or potential 360 buyer do not complain about the way the owner is demonstrating. It kills the wonder of it and we don’t want to dissuade potential folks from joining the community” – Posted with Metastat in mind and by his permission.

  167. give us your anouncement man

  168. nothing to announce yet lol

  169. Let me give a whirl at a new Law:

    Xbox 360 does not mean that your console can turn every which way in a full circle while playing games. In fact, it is not recommended.

  170. I just got the chance to read all the laws today! Great job!

  171. Xbox 360 Law: If 3 red LED lights appear to be flashing on the “Ring of Light”, immediate action must occur:
    1. Disconnect all wires/connections.
    2. Disconnect HD,
    3. Reconnect all wires and HD.
    4. Restart Xbox 360.
    5. If problem persists, contact Xbox 360 Customer Support at 1-800-4MY-XBOX.
    *Do not leave your console broken!*

  172. a Law for the red lights is needed for sure..but that’s too straight forward lol

  173. Ok… how about:

    360 Law: If 3 red LED lights appear to be flashing on the “Ring of Light”, the console is not putting on a light show. You must call Xbox Support!

  174. lmao..perfect Bill!

  175. Lol thanks!

  176. Awesome! I see the law up there already! Thats so cool!

  177. yep..easy approval on that one. 24 Xbox 360 Laws and counting. remember to tell a friend ;) i didn’t think it would go over as well as it has lol  but i was watching the Man Laws beer commercials and thought hey…we need that for the Xbox 360 lol

  178. Sure I’ll spread the word of this site!

  179. Saint’s Row will be an awesome game but it is not an excuse to act like a loser 12 year old who says “Im 17 in ma white Tee”

  180. my comments arent appearing

  181. NOw they are, so Saint’s Row is no excuse to act like a 12year old who thinks hes a gangster. Unacceptable phrases include “17 in my white tee” “*#&@ that *@#&$ dawg” and any rap singing perfect examples of songs you chouldnt sing are Ridin, Its Goin Down, any Lil’ JOn or Ying Yang Twinz sosng, basically any rap with cussing. The rappers do it much beter that you. NOw that im getting personal let me say that I dont really like rap but there are always two versions of the rap songs. The radio version I jam to and the derrty version my nephew listens to in the backseat of the SUV with his little headphones. For example take “Whisper” by the Ying Yang Twinz. A clever radio song, they were whispering and stuff which was neat since it made sense. I listen to the regular cersion “Wait till’ ya see my dick”!?!?!? Come on, now I see why you wanna whisper. Sorry for my rant there deac. Just look at the Law I posted.

  182. Yep. I see all three of your comments.

  183. when you use the ( ) being too lazy it sends your comments to a queue and i have to approve them so just log in from now on ;)

  184. I c, thank you. This must be a law because its just crazy seeing this on live

  185. Food is a no-no. Serious weightgain and messy controllers are unwelcome.

  186. ^Good one

  190. good to go Dark :) welcome to the next generation.

  191. [quote comment="3322"]good to go Dark :) welcome to the next generation.[/quote]
    come on, thats a much needed law. How many people like potato chip grease on their controller?

  192. i dont, i just need live know, but i gotta wait to get my new computer.

  193. Hey I know this is NOT the place to post these things, but this post is directed to Deacon. I’ve been banned from Xbox.com forums until September 19th for allegedly “SPAMMING” but I have NOT done anything wrong on those forums to my knowledge, except posting helpful tips, and creating interesting threads… I understand that this site has nothing to do with Xbox.com, and I’m sorry, but I thought you could help me out since I cannot PM anyone on Xbox.com. Thanks much!

  194. Oh and I forgot – I also dropped a CUL from a ’4′ to a ’3′. :(

  195. sure Bill. i’ll do what i can.

  196. Thanks a lot Deac :)

  201. i wanna be in this list…fuck de ps3

  202. wish granted Luke :) welcome to the Council.

  203. can we add forum laws not that ur a mod?

  204. i was shocked that dec became a mod. not that its a bad thing, i thought you had to work for MS to become a mod.

    im so happy, my football season is almost over, then i can get live and help with the Laws!

    when i get live, im changing my name, but i dont want to give it a way ;)

  205. nah you don’t have to work for MS to become and MVP or moderator. and forums laws? i’ll pitch the idea lol

  206. Descon,

    I think you should amend:

    360 Law: Official celebrations when unlocking Achievements or other milestones achieved during gameplay include high fives, fist pumps in the air or shouting ‘Yeah!’. At no time do you celebrate with a hug and that includes the mythical ‘man hug’.

    Add:

    Pats on the ass!

  207. lol pats on the ass as in they’re accepted??

  208. “One does not use generic cables and conrollers with the Xbox 360. Poney up and spend the extra $5 for quality equipment”

  209. [quote comment="5841"]lol pats on the ass as in they’re accepted??[/quote]
    Hahaha! That would be hilarious!!

  210. Never buy achievement points. Ever.

  211. [...] Xbox 360 Laws [...]

  212. [...] Xbox 360 Laws [...]

  213. Thou shalt not steal another gamer’s gamertag

    Thou shalt not express his privates to the Vision Camera

    Thou shalt not place a Xbox 360 on carpet

    Thou shalt not buy a Disney Xbox 360 game

    Those are my two cents lol.

    BTW, i do take the oath with pride!

    -Hye

  214. i like the steal gamertag one lol gonna have to make a revision :)

  215. 360 Law

    Thou shall not abuse the controllers rumble feature for any reason

  216. NEW LAW! nice one Darth!

  217. lol Thanks. The other law I came up with was actually the first one I thought of and I thought that had a better chance to be picked. I almost decided not to send the one about the rumble.

  218. the rumble was classic lol a lot of people read these Laws, i’m sure they’re enjoy it.

  219. Music is good, but it not be blasted through your microphone during a gaming session.

  220. lol at the new rumble law :D

  221. yeah thank Darth Doomsday for the ‘Rumble Law’ lol

  222. have a confession :(
    My name, long long ago was orginally taken from Blu3 Flam3 :( but since the “Thou shalt not steal another gamer’s gamertag” is new i have not REALLY broken the law

  223. Do not touch another man’s controller without permission. Doing so could result in unwanted blemishes on it’s cleanliness and playability.

    Playing on a profile that is not yours when the owner is not around should be avoided at all costs. This results in mysterious GamerScore points and MarketPlace downloads, and THAT is unacceptable.

  224. Halfblood (DarkBread here)…
    i got my new gamertag.
    can i take the ‘oath’ to become an enforcer?

  225. ofcourse. what’s your gamertag?

  226. the microphone has a mute function. Please use it.

  276. 29th Law ^_^.

    I’m pretty satisfied, but I can cook up more somehow!

  277. Haha, nice one Deejay Knight!! I witnessed this this “bill” upgraded to a law in the forums. congrats!

  278. yep congrats Deejay…we actually added the 29th and 30th 360 Law tonight :)

  279. our first amendment courtesy of the GamerchiX.

    old 360 Law: Xbox GamerchiX. You disrespect. You lose respect. The boys like to play with the girls. Obey this.

    new revision: The GamerchiX Rule. If you disrespect the chiX, you’ll lose respect. Obey the T.G.R.!

  280. nice revision. i will take note of that :D haha i like the 30th law…. another law suggested by deejay knight! nice!

  281. Please accept in the brotherhood!!!!!!! “This is my Xbox 360. There are many like it but this one is mine. My Xbox 360 is my best console. I must master use of my Xbox 360 as I must master the Xbox 360 Laws. Before all Xbox 360 owners, I swear this creed.”

  282. welcome to the brotherhood ;)

  283. dude thats awsome lol i want to be on the list !!!

  284. [quote comment="13480"]dude thats awsome lol i want to be on the list !!![/quote]

    thx arctic :) what’s your Gamertag and i’ll get you on the list of Enforcers. :)

  285. the gamertag is arcticchill360

  286. thnx man

  287. no problem. thx for supporting the Xbox 360 Laws…welcome to the Council my friend. :)

  288. Surprised that there is no greasy food law yet.

    “If guests want pizza (or any other food that may make controllers slippery or gross) they get pizza but they don’t get any 360 controllers until hands have been washed and than inspected and cleared by the 360 owner.”

  289. “I shall abide by all Xbox 360 Laws both foreign and domestic. I realize that this duty is thrust upon me the minute I claim ownership of an Xbox 360 and I shall willfully learn all current Xbox 360 Laws upon such claim. I further proclaim that I will strike down all offenders of said 360 Laws so that harmony continues to rule over chaos.”

    “This is my Xbox 360. There are many like it but this one is mine. My Xbox 360 is my best console. I must master use of my Xbox 360 as I must master the Xbox 360 Laws. Before all Xbox 360 owners, I swear this creed.”
    I now devote myself fully to the brotherhood. You have my controller.

    P.S. How about “all 360′s must be properly cooled if gaming for more than 1 hour strands. Either with a small fan (not a hand held) or a intercooler”.

  290. you guys are coming with some pretty cool new Laws. :) gotcha both on the Council now.

  292. I don’t know if this has been suggested before, but perhaps we should create a Community Night for Gears of War or something. What do you say Deacon?

  293. a lot of people have been urging me to do that. i really need to examine it i see…but there’s always something during the weekends or weeknights that get in the way of my planning.

    but it’s definitely something i’ve been urged on…i get quite a bit of urging for several things in fact lol

  294. oh. ok. i think its a great idea, but if you’re busy, then hey, you cant do anything about that!

    btw – check ur PMs over at Xbox.com

  295. if playing with anyone who appears (in this case, sounds like) to be a 9 year old, please resist the urge to flame. only flame if said 9 year is acting obnoctius, so there for, “asking for it”

  296. Is it OK to completely replace the xbox case with a new one of a different colour?

  297. yep you’re okay with that Bassetts :)

[...] I came across a fun forum post at xbox.com: …with so many new members signing up over the holidays that it would be nice to go over the "unspoken Xbox 360 Laws" established by DeaconBlade 360 on July 28, 2006. These laws are meant to make everyone gaming experience more enjoyable. That said – the rest is copied directly from Deacon’s Unscripted 360 site. [...]

  299. I Romulox360, lowley servent of the almighty 360, kneel before DeaconBlade and the entire Council of Enforcers. I humbley ask for admittance to the Council of Enforcers and solemley pledge:

    “I shall abide by all Xbox 360 Laws both foreign and domestic. I realize that this duty is thrust upon me the minute I claim ownership of an Xbox 360 and I shall willfully learn all current Xbox 360 Laws upon such claim. I further proclaim that I will strike down all offenders of said 360 Laws so that harmony continues to rule over chaos.”

    “This is my Xbox 360. There are many like it but this one is mine. My Xbox 360 is my best console. I must master use of my Xbox 360 as I must master the Xbox 360 Laws. Before all Xbox 360 owners, I swear this creed.”

    I eagerly await your judgement.

    P.S. I hope that wasnt too over the top :)

  300. lmao..that was fantastic Rom! welcome to the Council!

    be sure to hit up the Official U360 Message Boards for more 360 Laws discussion

    http://www.unscripted360.com/forums

  301. Thou shal not use the 360 law board to request setting up gaming nights.

    Users of XBOX 360s with gold memberships will refrain from leaving negative feedback if the only reason for it is that they have lost a game.

    Thou shal not engage in jibberish discussion with a PS3 owner over which is the better console.

  302. These laws are great. Absolutely great. I will do my part, and make sure all 360 owners I know uphold them.

  303. Oh yes.

    “This is my Xbox 360. There are many like it but this one is mine. My Xbox 360 is my best console. I must master use of my Xbox 360 as I must master the Xbox 360 Laws. Before all Xbox 360 owners, I swear this creed.”

    I wish to be a part of this.

  304. welcome aboard evil.

  305. Hello all! New to this forum and new owner of a Xbox 360 as of last night. I linked the 360 laws to a blog I posted on 1up.com — props to everyone involved in this project!

  306. i checked out the post you made cruzin. welcome to the 360 family! and glad you’re excited about the 360 Laws like we all are :)

    see ya around the forum and community. when you get your gamertag let us know.

  307. this is awsome i wonder how namy people we are gunna have on the council by the end of the year???my guess…..560 people

  308. the more you tell, the more we’ll have ;) 560 sounds great to me.

  309. Well seeing as I am allowed a full case replacement I shall take thy oath.

    “I shall abide by all Xbox 360 Laws both foreign and domestic. I realize that this duty is thrust upon me the minute I claim ownership of an Xbox 360 and I shall willfully learn all current Xbox 360 Laws upon such claim. I further proclaim that I will strike down all offenders of said 360 Laws so that harmony continues to rule over chaos.

    What can I do to people who break these laws? I think some good old capital punishment should do, or is that a bit harsh :p

  310. punishment sounds good to me LOL

  311. Does that mean I make it to the list of enforcers?

  312. ofcourse…anyone who supports the 360 Laws and spreads the word have a spot on the Council. :)

    go forth with your duties young Jedi! ;)

  313. YAY! I shall start by posting it on my blog.

  314. Your hard drive acts as YOUR personal dogtags…… Upon putting your 360 on Ebay you MUST keep your hard drive…. only a fresh/unused drive will be accepted for use in said auction…..

    btw.. most of the laws above are common sense… I absolutely LOVE them..

  315. thanks for checking ‘em out ButtonMasher…you up for being on the Council?

  316. Trash Talking shall start with “Good Game but…” or “You Played Great but…”

    Thou shalt restart the game when voice masking makes you sound like a 5 year old with an unusually high pitched voice.

    Thou shall NOT spend another gamers MS Points without permission.

    Thou shall NOT chastise another gamer for what they are playing (unless its Barbie Horse Adventures).

    Thou shall not “take it easy” on GamerChix to try to impress them. It will do the opposite.

    and the last one is simply:
    When MY clan is playing against you (MASTERS0FU) please do not ask us where MasterBaiters is. He went Blind, and its offensive to mention it.

  317. [...] delle stesse. Ecco la lista completa dei membri del Consiglio.   Le Leggi (versione originale)360 Law (O): Barbie Horse Adventures dovrebbe essere giocato unicamente su di una Xbox [...]

  318. Nice. I should get this put on a shirt.

  319. that’s not a bad idea.

  320. Hi Deacon,
    I would consider it a great honour if you could add me to the list of esteemed Council Enforcers. I have recited The Oath, succesfully ignoring the “looks” of my family, and already swear infront of my Xbox360 on a regular basis…
    Although my faith in the Council is strong I just have one small question: when you say that I must strike down all offenders of said 360 laws… do you mean, like… literally? I don’t actually have a problem with this. I was just wondering if the Council has a recommendation on what to strike them down with ? Maybe an original Xbox controller ? The cord could be used to tie them up first…? I think we should go after those b*****ds that claim video games incite violence first.
    I’d also like to add somekind of rule that bans four year old sons from writing over your Gears of War checkpoints… I’ll get back to you as soon as I’ve formulated it in such a way that he can’t find a get out clause.
    So… like, I’ll wait for the call, yeah ?

  321. easy there Lefty…i didn’t mean literally lol just give them a reminder when they violate.

    what’s your gamertag by the way?

  322. Deac,

    My gamertag IS “Lefty Redbeard”. Did you think it was my real name? I get that a lot. I could change it by Deed Poll if it’s easier for the Council. I don’t mind.

  323. nah just making sure what your gamertag was for adding ya to the Council :)

  324. these laws are the best

  325. [quote comment="18584"]these laws are the best[/quote]

  326. dont put your 360 in a enclosed space(thats why it overheats) its not “his” fualt. ITS YOUR FUALT!!

  330. Just because you have beaten all the bosses on your game and have full power does not mean that your friend wants to play co-op with you and watch as you take over and beat his game and/or learn where all the secret items and bosses are. I play to find these things myself and not have help. And when he ignores your invitation to play it does not mean that he wants you to keep asking in different ways.

    Ex. Crackdown co-op

    Exclusions Gears of War

  331. haha @ Brikz..i totally know what you’re talking about…

    @Conor, welcome to the Council. :)

  332. These are good laws, luckily i abide by all ecept the spam one when playing halo 2 custom games, as it saves time

  333. [quote comment="21367"][...] Xbox 360 Laws [...][/quote]
    I think there should be some more new laws – since there are new things available to the XB360. MSN IM, PC Gaming.

    If anything, perhaps the Halo 2 Law should be revised, since it’s going to be played on the PC well after Halo 3 comes out.

    “Thou shall set IM as AWAY or LOG OUT when playing online games or watching a movie. Likewise, do not IM someone while they are watching a playing a multiplayer game or watching a Movie”

    “Thou shall use thy Gamepad Keyboard to type out full words so that everyone can understand you. For example:

    TWIMC – FYI & FWIW – IMHO TTBOMK & TTYTT, GMTA, but not always. WYSIWYG, so GIYF

    TIA, TTFN & TY

    Translation –
    To Whom It May Concern – For your information & for what it’s worth – In My Honest Opinion, To The Best of my Knowledge & To Tell You the Truth – Great, Great Minds Think Alike, but not always. What You See Is What You Get, so Google is your friend

    Thanks in Advanced, Ta ta for now & Thank You”

  334. make sure you get any new Laws in either here or emailing me :)

  335. KnottyMars has a cool addition. Say hello to the 33rd Xbox 360 Law:

    360 Law: The Hungry Man Law. No one wants to hear what you’re eating over Xbox Live. Mute it before you chew it!

  336. Ideas for laws:

    Xbox 360 is Supreme –

    The Xbox 360 is never to be put underneath any other console or electronic equipment. Never is a PS3, Wii, DVD Player, Surround Sound unit, etc ever to go on top of the 360. The 360 is king, and it deserves to be on top.

    Clause: If the Xbox 360 is to be stood up vertically, then nothing shall stand taller than it. If you have a PS3, dare I say, then it must be positioned horizontally since the PS3 would tower over the Xbox 360. The Wii is an acceptable console that could be stood vertically since it is shorter than the Xbox 360.

  337. good one ZOSE! i didn’t see these.

  338. One shall not ever send Halo 2 game invites or messages to all online players. Especially those who don’t have Halo 2 or remember who you are. Send Halo 2 game invites or messages one person at a time.

  339. All Xbox 360 games are allowed only up to one minute of being exposed to unprotected air. If the disk is not in the console, then it must be in the case. Game exchanges must be met with some haste to ensure the utmost care and quality.
    Xbox 360 games must be stored in a proper Xbox 360 designed game case when not in use. No paper sleeves, DVD cases, table tops, or portable CD booklets.

  340. One shall never quit a ranked match, ever, unless in a dire situation such as home is burning, extreme weather, or power outage. One shall NEVER quit due to food, losing, fun, just because, not the right map, or because your bored. Why join a ranked match just to quit?

  341. Never team kill unless you have been killed by a team killer five times or more. Even then, attempt to resist all team killing temptation. Just give feedback and never play again with said individual.

  342. Quick’s on a misson ;)

  343. Thou shall not allow thy “brick” to dangle precariously from high ledges. If thou does not respect thy brick, thy brick shall not respect you, and thy sacred 360 shall have no energy for worship.

  344. Also – thy halo invite stalkers shall be struck down from thy heavens! If thou wishes to playth halo, thou must wait for halo 3.

  345. This one is kind of long of but it is happening to me right now.

    If your 360 gets the “Ring of Death”, you will not borrow a friends 360 for more than 24 hours every 168 hours (7 days). Exception: If friend is going on vacation, you are allowed to borrow friend’s 360 for the duration of friend’s vacation. Upon friend’s return, you have 12 hours to return friend’s 360 in same condition as you borrowed it.

    If you borrow a friend’s 360 and it gets the “Ring of Death” or something else happens to it, you are fully responsible for the replacement/compensation of the console. (Also applies to accessories)

  346. thou shalt not haveth thy xbox 360 immersed in thy entertainment center, but shall sever from and deliver thy xbox 360 to a seperate location, by itself, on display.

    although thy xbox 360 may keep thy coffee warm, thou shalt not coast drinks upon thy xbox 360, or for that matter, place ANYTHING upon or within one foot of thy coveted xbox 360.

    thy xbox 360 has no flaws, but if not fed the souls of sony products regularly, and worshipped, thy xbox 360 shall require reincarnation. (to remain pure)

    thy xbox 360 has no flaws, but if thy xbox 360 appears to freeze in the middle of thy gaming, thou has forgotten to drink more halo3 mountain dew.

  353. Thou shall not send random friend requests without first sending a message to said person about whom you are and why you wish to be their friend, more so if you have never played with this person and know they have no clue who you are.

  358. Thou shall not kill a 360, even if it is for a Youtube video. Xbox’s have feelings and want to live long, just like me and you.

  359. Thou shall not talk about a game if they can’t pronounce it correctly. (like when people pronounce Halo like Hail-o)

  360. up to 61 now :)

  361. Thou shall not mute their mic in between every word or few words they say. It is very annoying.

    (I have a friend who does this and he mutes the mic between every word or few words then turns it on and u constantly get that little clicking noise, very annoying)

  362. Do not let discs laying around. They are not frisbees and are not meant to be thrown like one. Just put it back in its right case.

  363. Gamertags should not contain more than 3 numbers. Tags like John91840276351 are NOT cool.

I further proclaim that I will strike down all offenders of said 360 Laws so that harmony continues to rule over chaos.

    “This is my Xbox 360. There are many like it but this one is mine. My Xbox 360 is my best console. I must master use of my Xbox 360 as I must master the Xbox 360 Laws. Before all Xbox 360 owners, I swear this creed.”

    a. use a cell phone connection over a satellite or a modified dial up, but use a USB-to-either-ethernet-or-wireless-N connector made specifically for cell phone air cards, like a Cradlepoint.

    b. Tell people you are in such a situation,
