Playing Modern Warfare 3 Early Could Get You Banned

THE BUZZ: If you somehow manage to secure a cop of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 early, you may want to resist the urge to play it—otherwise, you could risk facing the Activision ban hammer.

Stephen Tolouse, Director of Policy and Enforcement for Xbox Live, originally said that it was fine to play legitimate copies of the game before release, however he has since backtracked stating: ”Clarification: dblchk’d with Activision. Mw3 pre-release play not authorised. So pls be patient. Playing early may impact your account!”

EGM’s TAKE: So, if you have a copy, then it is strongly advised that you wait until Tuesday to start playing.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
