No ban for Halo 3 early birds

Lucky bleeders play on.

Microsoft has issued a statement (you have probably already seen) saying you will not be banned from Xbox Live for playing Halo 3 ahead of its official launch next Wednesday.

Copies of the game went on sale at UK retailer Argos yesterday, with many of you getting your hands on one.

Many feared their Live accounts would be in jeopardy after misleading comments were posted online, claiming anyone so much as running through the single-player element would have the Gamercard associated with the progress banned.

Microsoft has since come out and said it will also not penalise the retailer, as it is satisfied it was a genuine mistake.
