Gears of War: Judgment has leaked ahead of the game’s March 22nd release. We covered the leak here, but now Microsoft has pledged “vigorous action” towards plugging the leak.

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

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

What’s your take on the above?
