Playing Legitimate Modern Warfare 3 Before November 8 May Get You Banned

Some store has already begun mistakenly selling Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 before its official release date of November 8th, but those gamers who get buy it might not be as luck as they'd like to believe.

After noticing the matter, Xbox Live Director of Policy and Enforcement Stephen Toulouse tweeted that after double checking with Activision, he believes that "[Modern Warfare 3] pre-release play [is] not authorized" and that "Playing early may impact your account!"

This is not the first time Microsoft bans Xbox LIVE users for playing leaked games before launch, but it is the first time it threatens to do so to players who got the game legitimately and - most probably - don't know about the stores' mistake.
