Microsoft’s issued a stern warning to those who’ve “borrowed” Modern Warfare 2 from the internet in the past few days, saying it’s committed to taking “vigorous action” against illegal game-playing.
Live banning is also mentioned, although the statement – given to CVG – doesn’t mention MW2 by name.
The full thing:
Our commitment to combating piracy and support safer and more secure gameplay for the more than 20 million members of our Xbox Live community remains a top priority.
We take vigorous action against illegal activity related to our products and services, but we do not comment on those details. Consumers should be aware that piracy is illegal and that modifying their Xbox 360 to play pirated games will void their warranty.
Be warned. Buy it instead.
