We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
I would say it's unlikely at this point. Retailers are beginning to ship machines legitimately and most customers do not frequent these forums and would be unaware that signing on early could potentially be hazardous. So, I would say that if MS does not
want people online at this point, they would likely turn something off so that ppl cannot connect even if they try.
I don't know any of this for sure, but if MS started banning random customers who legitimately ordered an xbox one, that would be hazardous to their reputation, which is something they want to avoid right now.
the person got banned cause he was on social media talking about everything they wanted to keep secret. they he would have been fine if he just played it and kept off social media but everything was on twitter for a while, you wont be banned now since microsoft
has lifted and let the reviews released to the public.
If it is a legit machine that you paid for and a retailer shipped it out to you, you should be safe. You've done nothing wrong. MS won't ban you for that. It's the same with people playing games before the release date. If it is a legit copy, they don't
[quote user="ZIG ZAG STORIES"]they he would have been fine if he just played it and kept off social media[/quote]MS blocked all Xbox One consoles, not just his. His may have been the one that tipped them off, but seeing 150 new gamertags that didn't exist
the day(s) before would have tipped them off eventually as well.
