Microsoft Dropping Ban Hammer On Xbox Live Halo 4 Players


If you were thinking about playing your early copy of Halo 4 on Xbox Live (the game won’t go on sale until November 6th), don’t do it. You’ll be universally banned by Microsoft if you do.

The Microsoft Xbox Live Enforcement Team has been sending out permaban notifications to offenders, citing “pre-release title play” as the reason.

Also, when Microsoft says permanent it means permanent: “Your Xbox LIVE privileges will not be reinstated.”

Patience is a virtue, folks. Don’t go online with Halo 4!

    i can smell lawsuits on the way!
    if you paid for the game, obviously, than they cant ban you for playing the bloody thing you paid for!
    its not the customers fault shops cannot stick to street dates.
    hell doom 3 BFG edition came out yesterday, when it was not suppose to be out for another 4 days.
    RE6 released 6 days early too.
    its not the customers fault that stores dont seem to care about street dates anymore.
