my friend works for EA and will be getting Battlefield 3 a week early. He offered to get me a copy. Will i get banned for playing the game early?
No one can give you a definite answer. But as long as it's a legitimate game disc, then you shouldn't be banned.
Did this solve your problem?
Sorry this didn't help.
Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.

Yeah, Microsoft has been clear in the past that obtaining a game early - legitimately - won't be cause for a ban.
My guess would be no, but after seeing this come up yesterday:
forums.xbox.com/.../95281.aspx I'm not sure
I would message a XBLPET before playing it.
