But there are some people who can't wait, folks who have gone ahead and jumped on the bandwagon early even though it was forbidden, and those poor souls will be punished.
Not long after the early NXE access went out to review outlets and a few lucky contest winners, the files found their way onto the Internet. Thus, savvy pirate types are able to easily download the files and then plug them into their Xbox, thereby giving them early access to NXE. There are two problems though, first is that these folks can't connect to Xbox Live until at least November 19 (since that's when Microsoft flips the switch and turns it on), but even worse is the fact that these "pirates" may be permanently banned from Xbox Live."
