Microsoft has set things straight by announcing that they are not banning those who’ve received copies of Halo 3 before launch. They are, however, banning MS employees who are signing onto XBL with their copies. So there you have it. No need to fret over whether or not you can play your copy if you have one now. All is right in the world.
