Halo 3: ODST on sale early in France, MS responds

4.4


According to CVG, a handful of lucky gamers in France got their hands on a copy of Halo 3: ODST nearly a month in advance of it's September release date. It seems that some copies of the game were delivered early, and Microsoft states it is "investigating a very small breach in [its] distribution process." Furthermore, the company is looking at Live accounts with Halo 3: ODST activity and is planning to "take action against those we believe have procured copies of the game illegitimately."
Thankfully, those that were lucky enough to legally buy a copy of the game are in no danger. A Twitter update from Xbox Live's Stephen Toulouse notes that Microsoft "will not be banning legitimate customers from Xbox LIVE who play early."

im not jealous either i dont really like the Halo series, like XMan said im more pumped for MW2 and other games

XmanPosted:

eh... not a fan. I was a fan for a while but I don't think Halo 3 had good replay value and I got bored. I'm way more excited for Modern Warfare 2.

I gave up on the Halo series after Halo 3. I loved Halo Combat Evolved and Halo 2, but Halo 3 and Halo Wars just sucked. This game looks really amazing, but then again so did Halo Wars and Halo 3. I am not that Jealous of those people at all. I just all the hype is true.
