Thread: ****WARNING****MS confirms that accounts will be frozen even if you avoid online play

  1. #1
    When contacted by Pro-G a Microsoft rep confirmed rumours that gamers who play Halo 3 early will have their LIVE accounts banned. Simply not connecting to the internet doesn't appear to be a solution either. The rep also confirmed that Microsoft is able to ban accounts based on information collected by the console which shows when the game was played. This news is sure to come as a shock to some gamers who have already started playing the final chapter in the blockbuster Halo trilogy.

    This appears to suggest that games who play Halo 3 before the official street date will only avoid a ban if they never access Xbox LIVE. Microsoft is preparing an official statement on the Halo 3 banning scandal. We'll give you more on this breaking news story as we get it.

    such a pile of balls! simple, new account, take out hardrive, take out ethernet cable. BUT that shouldn't matter, I've had games a good full month before release and nothing said to me, so they are talking shit. Plus check xbox official forums, there are people playing it right now with the bungie staff.

    I am reading a lot of posts (on fire) in another forum. I will keep you guys posted and please do the same once you get a copy in hand so we can compare and find out if this is complete shit or not! Keep posting people, its the only way to know what MS is up to.

    Thanks!

    Oh please people. A release date is a release date. They are doing right to ban accounts for playing it earlier. Isnīt bad enough that we are playing it for free it first place? Show some distance please.
