Problems with game playing

  1. Someone used a pirated game in my console.
    Problem now is that certain games will not load at all (EA Sport Fifa/football games), although other games will.
    Does anyone have any answers as to how I can resolve this?
    Appreciate any ideas.
    Thanks

    if you have xbox, delete the saved games from the pirated game under options

    Thanks - it's an x-box.
    strangely enough the legit games have started working again (after 6 weeks of inactivity)
    The pirated game (apparently purchased for peanuts in Thailand) never worked anyway.
    Maybe a lesson to be learnt, I wonder if the x-box can read pirated games and block any playing?

    Microsoft has really cracked down with that stuff. I dont know if you remeber, but when Halo 2 came out if you had a mod chip, you were SOL.
    So it would not suprise me at all if that were the case. Glad you got it worked out.
