All hands to banhammer stations! Microsoft isn't just permanently exiling consoles but also gamertags for anyone caught playing Halo: Reach.
An email from Microsoft notifies users that their Xbox Live account is "permanently suspended" if caught by the Xbox Live Enforcement Team.
Hackers managed to dupe Microsoft's security and so were able to of Halo: Reach intended only for games journalists for review. These ill-gotten copies soon found their way onto notable torrent hubs and spread like wildfire.
