While some people out there may think it's cool to get your hands on something before it's officially released, it should be pretty obvious in today's world that if you do partake in the pleasantries of "stolen" goods, there's going to some kind of ramification. And, considering the depth and range of Xbox LIVE, Microsoft has had to hone its banhammer over the years, making it better and better as the hackers and modders out there got smarter. First spied on Xbox LIVE as a download needed to be accessed with a special code, Halo: Reach was quickly hijacked from Microsoft servers, and modders went out of their way to play it. But, it's a pretty simple thing to find those who downloaded the leaked version, catch them playing on Xbox LIVE, and ban them. Permanently.
