What happens when you block someone on Xbox Live

Blocking someone on Xbox live usually happens when some users start harassing others. There is no surefire way of blocking someone but there are steps that can be taken. It is a free world and submitting a reason for blocking will be reviewed by the Microsoft team before a block is applied.

When you block someone and it becomes a successful block. If you submit a negative review of the person, the chances of you ending up in the same games again will be reduced. If you have blocked them they won't be able to send you messages or see your online status. And if you block a user, then you automatically mute them, so they wouldn't be able to hear you in a game.

And you will not appear online when the other person is playing.  If you remember his gamertag, you can try calling Live support at 1-800-4My-Xbox and ask them if they can block him for you

Video: Xbox 360 Redesign Photos, Project Natal Renamed ' Kinect'

An advertisement for an unannounced redesigned Xbox 360 has appeared online, according to reports. The ad also acknowledges that the final name of Project Natal will be Kinect.

Several websites and forums are reporting that the advertisement seen above appeared earlier today on the Italian website Console Tribe. We're unable to verify the legitimacy of the advertisement at press time (as it appears to have been removed from the site), but given the frequency of report we're seeing, this seems legitimate.

Allegedly, the redesigned Xbox 360 will feature a 250GB hard drive and built-in WiFi.
