Reports of abnormally high bannings from Xbox Live have swelled on the internet in recent days, suggesting that Microsoft anti-piracy ninjas are inadvertently banning players again for gaining early access to hit games like Gears of War 2, which launched last Friday.
This isn't the first time owners of advance games have been banned from Xbox Live. In 2007, privileged gamers with early access to Halo 3 cried foul after having their Xbox Live accounts accidentally banned as Microsoft took measures to stop dirty-rotten pirates.
