    Just found this on maxconsole.com

    Gamers are now confirming that Infinity Ward and Microsoft are banning people who glitched unto the COD 4 beta. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted, right guys?

    Banning the use of the Demo or banning your Live account?

    You can still get a legit code by pre-oredering from GAME - if you really dont want it from them, cancel it later on.

    Don't know what everyone else is doing, but I'm using a secondary/trial account for the beta, with complete gibberish as personal details, and no links at all with my 'real' account....so they can ban that one all they want :smashin:

    There'll be a massive discrepancy between how many codes were handed out and how many unique gamertags have been playing the beta!

    I'm a little concerned, but even if they do ban me from the beta, at least I got a good few hours in last night and got to rank 10!

    Was still worth all the trouble downloading it. :thumbsup:

    Indeed, the BETA will be based on having so many testers on the server. If they have too many then they will not be able to test what they want under the conditions that they need.

    Balls to it, it's a bloody BETA if they want to test it in the LIVE environment, then do it where it's likely to get hammered and bugs appear.

    I don't care if I'm banned from the BETA, played enough to know I'll be buying it, they don't wanna ban me from my LIVE account though.

    Don't think that would have made a difference. Didn't you glitch yours too?

    I think it would be hard to track down every person who glitched in. It maybe and idea just to not login until the 7th when the beta starts here?

    Haven't seen it mentioned here yet if anyone has successfully connected to the Beta since this announcement?

    I'll give it a try later, I used a second trial account for the Beta so no bother if they ban it.

    Nope.


    I was reading on the www.charlieoscardelta.com forums, where this picture came to light, and they were saying that this person was banned (over a week ago) for streaming the beta over the internet or something. Infact the picture is from a web cam stream.

    Not really, IW will look at the number of Beta codes issued relative to the amount of people logged on, so they'll be able to see who logged on with a code and who hasn't, I think.
