This seems to be in place as a precaution to help stop the game leaking, I don't think anything will hapeen to anyone else who gets the game, thats just the writer speculating.

I got Halo 3 early, and everyone was saying the same line. I highly doubt it could happen, and who is to know if you got it legally, or illegally. Though, if this article is legit, I would unplug my Ethernet and create a new profile just for security measures, but I highly doubt that will be necessary.

If people stop trying to score the game early,we wouldn't have this problem. Seriously,the people who go out of their way to try to get something early annoy the hell out of me. Just wait like everybody else.

If anyone gets it early through no fault of their own, simple thing is unplug Ethernet cable and set dat to 29th/30th. When 29th actually comes around, plug cable back in and reset date.

Problem solved.

If I get it early, I won't leak or any shit like that, I have morals and I've said it before and I'll say it again; I would be having way too much fun.

Or are you annoyed that you don't have the contacts to get somethingearly because your obviously a boring prat with few friends.

It should be fine to play online on the 28th just say it arrived in the post early how can they prove a shop released it early?

This Sucks now i have to be carefull since i Might get GTA on Friday from my Local Gamestore here in NYC...but for some weird reason i dont wanna get the game early. I feel as if it might kill the hype by not getting at midnight on the 28th.

It doesn't have a fucking thing to do about having a contact. It's fucking annoying that people don't have the goddamn patience to wait.

And as far as that other comment,it's easy to make comments like that over the internet when you know you're never gonna see the person you're saying it too. But if I ever met you,you'd find out how boring I am when I cut your fuckin throat open.

This is stupid! WE the consumers are the ones paying out for this game and we are the ones that have made this franchise so big in the first place. why are they going to punish us for playing the game a few days early when the it is the fault of the suppliers leaking the game in the first place!!!
