Microsoft promising Xbox Live bans for Gears of War Judgement pirates

Several hours after a pirated copy of Gears of War Judgement began appearing on torrent search sites, Microsoft has promised bans for anyone found to be playing them on a hacked Xbox 360 consoles. Of course you’d be a bit of a fool to have your Xbox connected to Live while doing so, but perhaps the bragging rights are worth it for some.

“We are aware of isolated cases in which Gears of War: Judgement content has been propped on the web and are working closely with our security teams and law enforcement to address the situation immediately,” a Microsoft spokesman said while speaking with Eurogamer.

“Consumers should be aware that piracy is illegal and we take vigorous action against illegal activity related to our products and services.”

This is hardly a new behaviour for Microsoft however, as it has banned gamers from Xbox Live for life when they’ve been found playing leaked releases of games before – like Halo 4.

“Playing pirated copies of games, such as Gears of War: Judgment, is a violation of the Xbox Live Terms of Use and will result in enforcement action, such as account and console bans,” Microsoft continued.

In seeming response to the leak, Microsoft has now released a new trailer for the game:

Gears of War Judgement is being co-developed by Epic Games and People Can Fly and will be available in the EU on the 22nd March.

KitGuru Says: One of the reasons developers and some gamers aren’t fans of early leaks, is because plot points and story are often  spoiled. Of course with a Gears of War release you don’t need to worry about that, as mere days after completing the game you’ll have forgotten anything to do with the irrelevant plot anyway.
