Can you earn achievements on a cracked game and not get banned off Xbox Live?

A friend of mine downloaded a cracked version of Fallout 3. IF he were to link his gamertag from xbox live to it on games for windows and go online to earn achievements towards his gamer tag, would he get banned from Live?

Yes he would. Using firmware to modify and/or copy material used in the Xbox 360 is prohibited by Microsoft. Should a customer be caught using a cracked version of said material, he/she would be banned from Xbox LIVE, AND face charges of copyright infringement, which can include fines of up to $250,000 and jail time. If I were your friend, I'd steer clear of anymore cracked games, even if they're offline…Good luck and happy gaming either way.

    you can't go online with a cracked game anyway, you'd need a CD key that hasn't been already registered, which any of the ones the crack comes with + a keygen has entered in have already been registered. So, if you try to go online with it, it would tel you that your cd key is already in use, and probably shut down the game.

    Cracked games don't have online capabilities at all.References :
