Drop that ban hammer Microsoft and drop it hard! That’ll teach e’m, right? Well, that seems to be the method that the big software giant is employing for anyone playing the pre-release version of Halo 4’s multiplayer via Xbox Live.
“We have seen the reports of ‘Halo 4’ content being propped on the Web and are working closely with our security teams and law enforcement to address the situation,”
Well it’s not just the reports that the team have been watching. Xbox Live users have come forward to post the messages they’ve been receiving from the Live Enforcement Team regarding permanent bans over trying to access and play Halo 4’s multiplayer a month before the game’s release. You can check out the letter below indicating that the noobs have been ban-hammered with a level 10 perma-ban.

Tbh MS did this with the Halo 3 Beta and caught thousands out as the month after it did the biggest round of bannings (over a million according to MS figures),but this time its the account that gets banned and not just the console so if you have shed loads of bought stuff on your account then your regally fcuk’d.
I reckon though that MS come out of it ££££’s as most banned users go straight out and buy another console to mod and make a new account and Bobs your Aunties Nephew so to speak!.
