Halo Reach Pirates Getting Permanent Xbox Live Bans

Software pirates may want to reconsider downloading that leaked copy of Halo Reach in advance of the game's September 14 release date. Microsoft is issuing permanent Xbox Live bans for anyone it catches playing unauthorized versions of Reach.

Xbox Live's director of policy and enforcement Stephen Toulouse commented on his Twitter (via Joystiq), "As with all unauthorized play on Xbox LIVE, anyone playing any unauthorized title runs the risk of account permaban and console," adding, "Legit store bought copy runs no risk of ban. Key word: UNAUTHORIZED. We have ways of knowing."

Don't want your console permanently exiled from Xbox Live? Then don't pirate games, dummy. And have a little patience; September ain't that far away.
