MW3 leaks for Xbox 360 – Xbox Live bans likely

By Updated on

Recently on Twitter we notice quite a few tweets suggesting that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for the Xbox 360 has leaked, we looked into things and we can confirm that the game has turned up on multiple websites around the world, for obvious reasons we will not be linking you to these.

According to someone on Twitter (who asked to remain anonymous) the game is region free and requires the Ixtreme LT+2.0 flash, we are not experts on this, but there are also mentions of XGD3 0800, SSV2 and a stealth patch. We presume that the latter means that anyone playing this will be “safe” from Microsoft, Activision and whoever else is taking measures against MW3′s piracy, but we really recommend that you wait for the game’s official release to avoid getting your console banned.

Almost a year ago lots of people got banned from Xbox Live when their consoles were linked to pirate copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops, therefore we think it is likely that a similar thing will happen this time around if people circum to temptation and illegally download MW3. By playing an illegal copy of the game you are risking getting your Xbox 360′s live capabilities taken away, but we are sure that some people won’t be put off by this.

To our knowledge the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 servers are not yet online, therefore anyone who downloads the game will only have offline game modes such as the campaign to play through. The servers will probably go live near to the game’s release date (November 8), but don’t be too surprised if a title update is rolled out across Xbox Live between now and then which will block pirates from playing the game.

Do you think pirates who download MW3 deserve to get their Xbox 360′s banned?

      i’m sick of playing the real game just so someone level 1 can shot me faster and easier because of a chip and a hacked program that allows them aim bot cabalities. I pratice for hours to only get crushed by a level 1, that should be just learning to play, instead thier Aug scoping with sinper rifles that aint avaible to higher levels. And i know my perstiage emblems, and they are way to good to be just learning. Any code hacked that isnt a official xbox disc should get you banned for life.

      Sorry cheaters i dont believe because you can afford to buy a mod chip and hack a game by way of download, you should be allowed to destory my Kill to death ratio, play the game practice stop exploit what would be a great legandary game, like the rest of the COD series. All game hacker should be reported on xbox live, and their service providers ip address should be logged and banned till the next version of the game, and if they do it again, cancel them out completly.

        I played people like you and i played all the COD and i’m a frist person shooter god, theres no reason to lose and get dominated by a person who buys there Kill death ratio online, through hack, and mod chip, hope to see you online so i can report and get you banned, wats you account name, lets see if you really cheating, i’ll be glad to show you how to get shut down, for cheating gamers against cheaters ;). $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ cant buy everything, some things are earn through practice and error.

    I agree that SOME pirates deserve be banned but theres a good reason some ppl pirate these things ya know. >__>

    And why do you ppl care anyways its not like they’re bothering you or anything.

    • Overlordmm

      “Good reasons some people pirate these things”. Like what?? To put a company out of business by stealing & not buying a product that they have been working on for a long time. No wonder the economy is going under!!! Pirates are bad. I don’t care home much you like Johnny Depp, he is still a bad Pirate. Arggh!!! PS: the Depp part was sarcasm.

        Not entirely true. Any media company, oil company, tobacco company…those are some ofthe most vicious people in the world. They’ve got stock holders worldwide who are basically accessories in crime.

    • Brian

  • Brian

And some perks that remain the same yet called a different name .there is a perk where u can have 2 primary weapons , cool game though. Solo play or campaign cool . Just to prove I have it u are under water dodging some mines and u plant a explosive device on the tail of a sub … Then u are on a boat doge some stuff then in a heli and that’s all I’m telling .

    No pirated games should be banned, along with all thier xbox mac addresses, i’m sick of playing the real game just so someone level 1 can shot me faster and easier because of a chip and a hacked program that allows them aim bot cabalities. I pratice for hours to only get crushed by a level 1, that should be just learning to play, instead thier Aug scoping with sinper rifles that aint avaible to higher levels.

    Also I believe all hate language should be report to xbox live, no use of them hate words should be allowed, to many games i had to sit through ingrorant people, cusing racist, gay hate language, it’s disguisting and shoud be ban, three strikes and bye get another gamer tag till they learn to play nicely. Xbox rules, COD’s great all versions, and to those who hate it, just keep practicing you will become stronger and always report cheating or hateful lang. Sgt. Cash.

    Rid all hacker from COD, thanks Xbox and Activision, get ‘er done
