Well, its more fun then a ban...using one of the MPs features to give the early players something to enjoy...or just get wiped out lol...I think its a very clever way to deal with Retailers selling early or shipping early....if its pirated games MS will
no doubt deal with them, but makes it fun in the mean time
This is actually a really great idea, love the humor behind it. Playing offline would be one way to counter it, but then you couldn't experience the joy of being absolutely slaughtered and losing thousands of souls you just spent hours farming!
[quote user="Strangeotron"]I really don't understand why these developers want to actually punish the people that want to play their game as soon as possible.[/quote]
I and anyone who played GoW3 before the official release, were greeted with a nice little message from EPIC saying "Congratulations on being one of the lucky people to play Gears 3 before release day" and an apology if there were any online issues as they were
still sorting it all out for release day.
So it's not all developers, just these boring Japanese weirdos.
