Microsoft Perma-Bans Halo 4 Pirates
Microsoft has permanently banned Xbox Live users found running pirated copies of Halo 4.
After the latest installment in the popular franchise was leaked onto torrent sites over the weekend, reports from Reddit indicated that Microsoft’s Live enforcement team has been sending emails informing pirates that they’ve been permanently banned from Xbox Live for “prerelease title play.” The email states, “Your Xbox Live privileges will not be reinstated,” so this does sound like a permanent ban.
Microsoft has issued Eurogamer the following statement:
“We are aware of isolated cases in which Halo 4 content has been propped on the web and are working closely with our security teams and law enforcement to address the situation immediately.
Did those pirates get what they deserved?
