Xbox LIVE BanHammer for Playing Forza 3 and Borderlands Early



It looks like Microsoft started banning users from Xbox LIVE for playing Forza 3 and Borderlands early (the game was leaked on the internet a few days ago). It’s not the first time Microsoft puts out the BanHammer from playing leaked games and it will certainly not be the last time. For now it seems to be an Account BAN and not a Console BAN.

Here’s a quote of the email banned users got from MS:

Notification of Permanent Suspension: Pre-release title play
