COD Black Ops Xbox 360 Leak: Will You Download / Play Online?

Earlier today we revealed that the Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops has now leaked, we thought we would get some feedback from our readers to see if they would download the pirate copy and play it online before the official release date.

This time last year a similar thing happened with Modern Warfare 2, however Microsoft responded with a mass console ban targeting those gamers who had played the pirate version online, therefore experts suggest that Microsoft may do the same this time round.

Some people will undoubtedly risk their Xbox 360’s for a few days of early Black Ops gaming, so we thought we would ask you for your opinions on the matter, feel free to use the comments section below to answer the following questions.

Will you download the leaked Black Ops? If so, will you play online before the game’s release date?

I guess people don't realize actually how much work goes into making video games. There are games that should never be priced at $60, but the better the tech the more you pay.Your not playing on a PS1 or SNES anymore. And, these people are cheap bastards. You might as well wait till its out for rent to see if you like it. Besides, If you like the game or not everyone is gonna play it for the online. I got MW2 and never finished the game. $60 bux, if you can't afford that then how do you have a… Read more »

I downloaded the game two days ago. As im not stupid enough to go online with it just yet I have only been able to try the campaign, zombies and split screen matches. The campaigne is pretty good, in my opinion its better than all of the previous ones. The zombies maps are also good with some new guns. One of the maps is where your in the whitehouse defending against zombies. The 3rd zombies map is like an old arcade game and is only good for playing solo. The maps are decent and the perks/guns are great. The thing… Read more »

No William, if it’s a legit copy, and not a backup, it you won’t be banned. The update infinitiward is putting out on release date of black ops, is just for back up versions. If it officially came in the case and is copywritten and all that, no worries. I was actually worried about that myself since there will always be some store having early releases of the game. I’d suggest waiting to till the day/midnight release of it before you try online, being as the update is mandatory. Achievements and stuff for offline mode prbobaly won’t effect either.

I downloaded it on the 30th and burned it on disc. Passed campaign and got to level 20 in zombies. Overall in my opinion, the game is not all that, and I am a big call of duty fan!. So if I were all of you little whining cry babies then I would download it, because truthfully I would certainly not pay $60 for a game that is gonna suck anyways!

I downloaded a week early last year and played all week… made it to 2nd prestige, I did get banned on on launch day and was back up and running that day. I even got to keep my stats and prestige (I was surprised at this). I just finished the campaign… and it is AWESOME, I am not a big fan of trearch… but this is the best to date, even the weapons got a refresh… mp40 still rocks, but it seems to be a slower shooting/sturdier gun. So I was bored and tried to go online right now….. and… Read more »

£40's a lot to pay for a video game but I like to play it safe and not risk the proverbial Microsoft cock block.

If you play it online before its released EVEN with all of you cords unplugged and you on a diffrent account, you will still be flagged for banning because the xbox stores all game data period. Just wait a couple of days and you can play it online for ever. Oh and $60 is alot of money to many people thats why i download.

Jack is right I'll start buying games when they aint getting retailed at £40+ a pop. Thank christ I downloaded Medal of Honor and never paid for it there was only 5 hours of gameplay!!!

That being said it was awesome though and I'll grab a cheaper retail copy in a few months.

There are so few companies taking the time to make games that are worth buying, Fallout NV anyone?
I'll be proud to spend 60$ for game that's worth my money. I will never download a leaked illegal version of a game and I hope those who do will get caught and dealt with.

Micro$oft did NOT ban users xbox live accounts last year for playing Modern Warefare 2 on a pirate copy early before release date. The ban wave that Micro$oft handed out last November was due to them finally sussing out who was running Ixtreme firmware. This firmware was needed to play back up (pirate) games. It had nothing to do with an early release of Modern Warfare 2. Micro$oft new that the best time to send out a ban wave was when everybody was wanting to play the new call of duty online. This in return meant that over a million… Read more »

What if you're downloading to play it early and also buying it?? You are then only in possession of a back-up of your original purchase. Problem solved…

Won't be going online with it though…

Once it leaked as a download today the Treyarch "witchhunt" is over. No way in heck they can catch the THOUSANDS that will have this game in the next 24hrs. The ones hurting will be the idiots that go online with it.

You know 60 bucks is not that much money. And 9 days is not that long. So why dont you people wait and pay. I have an idea while you wait for the game work and earn 60 bucks to pay for the game.

yes the leak is legit but they are cracking down the people who have it so be warned. treyarch hired people to investigate any one selling, pirating black ops

i dont care if it has leaked because im not going to download it, i would rather just buy the game and have an actual copy of the game, there is no point downloading it illegally and risk getting caught, £40 isnt alot of money really. i've already preordered the hardened edition

Why risk £200 for a game you have forever to play in 9 days??
