Microsoft Bans 23K XBL Users for 24 Hours


Posted September 6, 2007 - By bleahy

Did you get into the Call of Duty 4 beta? Did you get in by having a buddy exploit a glitch that allowed people who did not receive keys from Infinity Ward to download the beta?

If so, BANNED!!! You are now banned forever for a day. Wait, that's not so bad, but let this be a lesson to you! Don't glitch the system.

Hit the cut for Microsoft's statement on the matter and some beta gameplay that should hold you over while you take a 24 "break" from Live.

Microsoft had this to say:

"The current POR is to issue a 24-hour console lockout that will prevent these 23k users from using their consoles to sign in to LIVE. These users will also receive a message in the dash with an explanation as to why their console has been locked out for 24 hours for violating the LIVE TOU [Terms of Use] and a warning that more severe actions may be taken if they attempt a similar action in the future (console could be banned permanently, etc.)."

Now enjoy some footage of the beta you aren't playing.
