I think you only have a chance of getting banned if you play it 72 hours + early.

If you want to take the risks to play early, then by all means go ahead... but do not come crying back here if you do get banned. Personally, it is better to be safe then sorry and wait till release day. Hell, we've all been waiting 2-3 years so we can wait the extra day (if we do get it early) to play it on the actual release day.

 

For me if I would get my copy a day early I would still wait for the release day to play it, since I do not want to take the risk of either getting my gamertag and or console banned. I won't even initiate that 8GB mandatory install until release day to be sure that my console/gamertag will not be associated with GTA V until release day.

 

edit: It's not worth it to have your console and or gamertag banned just to play the game a few days early.

If it arrives Monday lunchtime, how can they ban you for playing it 12 hours before midnight launch, an official store and delivery service posted it through your door, so they cant blame you for opening one of the biggest games and playing straight away, you didn't obtain it illegally, so they can't do anything.

If mine comes through the post on Monday and installing it straight away and playing the sh*t out of it.

I can imagine M$ doing this but sony not so much. This is extremely anti-consumer. You paid the game, but just got it early and it's not your fault it's whoever sold it to you before the release.

If mine arrives on Monday, I'll be playing it then too! I doubt several hours before midnight is really going to cause a ban, c'mon!

^^This.

Also, imagine the "casual" customers, randomly picking up GTA V in a less popular store, not knowing it's not even released yet. They'd get banned for no reason. Imagine the rage towards Microsoft.

I agree that it will be harder and more tempting since you have the physical copy, but I know I can wait, and patience is a virtue. I can understand how some people like yourself are not patient enough, but is it really worth the risk to play it a day early? Like I was saying previously if you have already waiting this long for it, it should not be a problem to wait one more day.

 

^^I can sort of believe that could happen, but most of the time the people who end up getting the game early are those that know what they are doing and are trying to get it before release date. There's more people that try to get it before the release day then those that just "accidentally" have the game given to them by an employee at a less populated store. Most named stores normally don't release games in-store before the release day, normally those that get it early are the online orders.

 

From my experience and my knowledge most of the unknown, and your "mom and pop" stores is what people call them are the ones that normally break the street date and most of the time you have to go looking for them. Also to my knowledge most "casual" costumers would choose the named stores over some questionable store, unless the only store near them is a "mom and pop" store.

Exactly! If Microsoft have such a problem, then they should just issue a statement so people know not to play.

 

I've only heard of bans coming from people leaking footage early. So I really doubt there's anything to worry about for those of us who (hopefully) get our copies on Monday.

I guess do what you want, since I don't think anyone on this forum will change your mind anyways. I think most people who will get the game early will end up playing it regardless of the consequences (if it is true that people are getting banned for playing game early).

Even on PSN, and what if I don't sign in into PSN?

Homie, you can only if you don't connect to internet until sep. 17, when you're playing gta v!

I can't see anyone getting banned for playing a game which they have paid for and is legit. Would make rockstar/sony/Microsoft look very bad and many people would get banned which wouldn't last very long. Fine retailers or something but many need to dispatch early for people to get on release day.

 

Leaks are the things they want to stop so sounds like rubbish to me.

You will never get banned for playing early per Rockstars Policy. See link for more info, What you got banned for is posting unboxing, and gameplay footage.

Step 1. Disconnect xbox from internet.

Step 2. Pull out power cable so it resets date to 2005 (not sure if all versions do this, mine does).

Step 3. Enjoy GTA V 

Step 4. Connect to internet once it is sep 17 or after

I can tolerate those people who play games early. But I CANNOT tolerate those people who leak gameplay footage on Youtube. Those miserable lowlifes need a reality check. I hope R* ban them completely.

It would be pretty ridiculous if you get banned for playing it early, although I can see why they'd do it after all the leaked footage. Still I'd just wait until release day like everyone else. Patience is a virtue.
