Damn, I always thought they wouldn't ban a console if you got a legit retail copy...taking down the videos is one thing but wow.

What's the difference between a gamertag ban and a console ban?

Also, screw MS, seriously. What a bunch of crap.

Gamertag ban= make a new gamertag.
Console ban= buy a new console.

Something similar happened to a fellow gaffer last year for Halo 4 too, lol. Sucks.

holly shit, not even a Gamertag but a wide console ban.


Is this really against the TOS? I mean, he got a legit copy.

It's silly, really.

Well, if I were the guy I'd beast through the game and provide spoilers for those who wanted them. I'm sure he could find another console.

I'd take the console ban as a declaration of war.

Microsoft is really weird when it comes to early copies of games. If you're not on a list like a reviewer you're banned even if you have a legitimate copy of the game.

I remember a topic on GAF where something similar happened with Halo Reach and it didn't end well.

Can't he just play it offline? Or did they actually brick his console

A console ban renders the console unplayable. Edit: Or so I had heard. Apparently not the case.

I can't wait until Microsoft release the Xbox One. When you get a console ban of that, and your $499 system becomes useless, they probably take your picture with the Kinect camera and send it around to your neighbors systems do you can't play on theirs. Because fuck you.

Who, honestly, didn't see this ban coming? The guy's playing GTAV before release.
Thats no reason to ban someones entire account. Sony doesnt do that. If i buy the game legally why should I get banned. If you get a phone early does your provider ban you?

Not true at all. I had my first console banned due to modding it. You just cant connect to live

Well he payed for it, has proof and anything he can do whatever the fucks he wants with it

its a retail copy.

I'm not saying he should have been banned, don't get me wrong, I think it's totally messed up. I'm just saying with MS's track record for banning people for playing games before release, it shouldn't have been a surprise that he was.

I don't think banning the console actually bricks it...you just can't use LIVE anymore.

He said he'll upload even more videos now lol.

Wish he would go use Instagram.

You can just record with the regular camera app then upload the video to instagram, so he doesnt have to play one handed.
