Microsoft May Issue Bans for Leaked NXE Usage

This is to say that if you manage to get your hands on the NXE (New Xbox Experience) ahead of time and install it on your Xbox 360, Xbox Live will be disabled, not to mention that Microsoft could issue you with a permanent online ban. Xbox Live will be disabled for a period of about three weeks, up to the 19th of November, which is when the NXE is scheduled to drop anyway (and the download will be free of charge).

The simple truth of the matter is that this is the Internet age and whenever a piece of information leaks out ahead of time, we are more than willing to check it out. This goes for movies, music, and last but not least, games. You just have to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of your actions, and in this case the disadvantages have the upper hand.

Up to this point Microsoft did not ban any of the people that got the leaked NXS and ran it on their Xboxes, but this is not to say that they will not take drastic measures against rule breakers. If you thought that getting kicked off XBL (Xbox live) for a couple of weeks is bad, think about getting permanently kicked off. With that thought in mind, I don’t think that waiting for the official release on the 19th is such a bad idea.

The Microsoft team has been working on the NXE for about 9 months now and they are scheduled to finish its development on the 19th of November, the very latest. A more plausible scenario is that the development phase will be over a few days prior to that date. We can expect to see Xboxes with NXE preloaded on them about a month later – just in time for Christmas.
