Does Microsoft consider it cheating if you use a "dead controller" to get two person achievements? I have some games that require two people for achievements and no one plays them. I'd assume they wouldn't but wanted to make sure before I did anything.

If they did then I would of been banned a long time ago.. I know you just wanted to check but I think thats common sense.

As the post above me said.. No. Only hacking/modding and stuff that involves tampering with you 360 and unlocking chieve with sofware will get you banned.

The only thing that even comes close to that is Halo 3. When you use a "dead" controller (as you call it) you can get an XP ban from gaining XP in Halo 3 ranked matches.

But yeah, as far as Microsoft is concerned, unless you are altering your console or glitching your achievements you're good to go.

No way. They would have a hard time proving that nobody was playing on the other controller. Bungie was a special case because they wanted to be so anal about earning xp. Your good to go boost with a second controller, just avoid Halo 3.

Well according to Bungie it is ;), I don't see why some people think Boosting deserves a reset.

Microsoft doesn't care. Stepto on the Major Nelson podcast has stated this several times. And as others have already stated, if they did I would have been banned a long time ago as well.

Haha, no way. They only care if you try to cheat online, where it has an effect on other people's gameplay.
