I felt like being random, I thought it was funny
I've spoken to Microsoft about the chance of the game arriving early and they have advised that if it does I shouldn't play it until the release date because of their "pre-release ban" rules. But I don't think I've got the willpower to not play it if it's sitting in my hand, begging to be played.
I have an offline account I use for exploring the US releases. But would a nearly-unused account be more or less likely to flag up suspcious activity than one that's used all the time? And if my copy is legit then why should I feel the need to hide it?
I mean, if I wasn't a geek who had a spreadsheet (yeah, shut it) to track release dates I might just assume that the release date had passed and that I was able to play the game like any normal person.
Maybe I'll email them back and tell them to bollocks.
