    On another forum someone told me that you could play third-party games early and not get banned from LIVE. He played FFXIII and New Vegas (the game I want to play early) and he hasn't been banned. He is a reputable member. Can anyone vouch for this?

    No, you won't. If you do happen to get banned or suspended though, send Microsoft an e-mail with the proof of purchase. They'll have to unban/unsuspend you.

    Microsoft did ban people when some store released a game early, then a shitstorm was raised and they changed their policies.

    So I'm assuming I'll be safe if I play New Vegas tomorrow?

    When does the game come out? Playing it a few days early can be explained by a store not respecting the release date, but playing it a few weeks early is going to raise some red flags.

    Microsoft only bans early copies if you play them illegally.

    You have nothing to fear in the future.
