    Some stores sell the game early, and I may pick it up at one of those stores possibly a week or a few days early.

    It has been known to happen that store employees take home and play a game online before the street date and get their console banned. The case I heard about was a Wii, though, but it IS possible, yes.

    Isn't the point of playing online to play with other people though?
    Did you plan on playing with some beta testers or just other people who are also about to get their accounts nuked?

    In short.
    Yes you will get banned.

    Be smart and don't play games pre-release.
    Legit or not.

    It still logs the date played. The next time you go live the info goes straight to MS and wham!

    I would also advise kinda laying low for the first few weeks, especially if you are good at the game. People who are ragers could report you and you could get banned for being too good. Ive seen it happen. Kinda retarded.

    I have several Gamertags on my xb that are not live connected, couldnt I just play offline with one of those or not even sign in and just practice, I mean I am very good at halo, but if I get it early Id like to beat up on some friends split screen/learn maps.

    You can try, but don't come cry at us if you end up banned.

    We gave a fair share of warnings in advance.

    Yeahhh! I think that if you do try to play a game early, you will get banned from Xbox Live. I'm so sure that Microsoft don't want people playing games early! But wait, how do Gamestop, EB Games and all those other places get gameplay videos without getting banned from the respective services!

    people / places where they play there xbox's online submit the console ID and there gamertag to Microsoft and they are placed on a exception list so they are not banned because they have the games for review or testing purposes
