If a product does not display one of these logos, it has not been tested or approved for use on the Xbox 360 Video Game System. Microsoft cannot guarantee the quality or the compatibility of unlicensed products for use with the Xbox 360 Video Game System.

Note Use of unlicensed products on your Xbox 360 system may void your warranty.
