Don’t Be A Dirty Pirate And Get Halo 4 Early
So if you are one of those type of people who for some reason can’t wait for Halo 4 to be released and downloaded an early copy. You might want to hold off until release unless you like having your account permanently banned from Xbox Live. E-Mails are being sent out to the offenders and are being told that “account privileges” are being suspended indefinitely. Now sure, you could just make another Xbox Live gold account if you have the money, but it just be a waste of money in the end.
