So i got myself a copy of gears, but im afraid to play since there's rumors that if you play a game before its release youll get banned from xbox live.
Those rumours are wrong. You wont get banned for playing a legit copy early.
How did you get it early
as long as it isn't pirated and you got a copy early MS has a problem with your retailer not you. you could however just be nice and wait for the rest of us :p
Yeah, i heard the same. As long as its legit youre good, you just wont have access to all the exclusive stuff/DLC until the 20th. But dont quote me on that for that i am not entirely sure of.
