Microsoft targets Halo 4 pirates with bans15 Oct 2012
If you’re excited for Halo 4, it perhaps didn’t escape your attention that copies of the game were leaked over the weekend. As a result, certain people have been able to play a pirated version of the game on modded Xbox 360s. Some of them were foolish enough to log on to Xbox Live at the same time, and are being banned as a result.
“Because your conduct is in violation, the Xbox Live Enforcement Team has issued a permanent suspension. Your Xbox Live privileges will not be reinstated,” says an email issued by Microsoft to those it has found to be playing a pirated copy of Halo 4.
Halo 4 will be (properly) released on 6 November.
