Would it be ok to play it a week before release? Would there be any banning or anything that would take place?

 

Edit: Updated title


You will NOT get banned if you play a game before the official release date. As long as it is a legitimate copy of the game (not bootleg, pirate) and you paid for the game (not stolen). I have been lucky enough to get a few games before the official release date and I did not get banned for playing them. The only bad thing that will happen is that the servers for that game will NOT be working until the actual release date for the game.

As others have said nothing will happen to you for playing it early, the servers and any codes will not be activated until release date, although the retailer that sells it can get into pretty big trouble for breaking the street date, they look at that very seriously, but nothing will happen to the person who bought it.

its perfectly fine, you cant and wont get banned for playing a game early.

 

but just dont stream it with Twitch. they are cracking down on people streaming games before release and you can get banned from Twitch.

 


Sweet. I've never bought a game early and honestly I'm afraid to so I might just wait. Either way, you're still supporting the developer and it's not pirating so I'm not totally against it... just afraid to do it. lol.


As long as you are playing a legal, non pirate version of the game, you will not be banned. However, I wouldn't recommend streaming it until closer to launch


yup.

there are people who have been streaming MGSV: Ground Zeroes and Twitch has started posting things on the stream saying to not stream the game until it comes out(on the 18th) and that doing so may result in a ban.

Just don't Narc out the store that sold it to you.

 

I believe stores can get in A LOT of trouble for selling early. I know Gamestop can get in trouble for selling early.
