Edit: Another question: at www.gamehubs.com (http://www.gamehubs.com) it says release date 09 september but it is 22-09 right?

I'm not sure if this would belong to the ODST forum or not but someone in my friendlist is playing Halo 3: ODST currently and I haven't check yet but the list looks the same as the video on youtube before. But since it's not released yet how is it possible?

Your right this should be in the ODST forum.

Well he either lives in France and was lucky enough to get an early copy when they accidently released it. He's a reviewer and got an early copy... Or the most likely reason is due to him having a Modded Xbox 360 and getting it from a Torrent website, but Microsoft are Perma-banning people who are illegitimately playing this game early.

He is from France indeed. Why don't the Dutch people make that mistake to release early:P not fair lol. Explains too why he did get the Skull achievements of Halo 3 but not the Shotgun Spree Sword Spree and Ghost kills since you need to play online instead of Forge and there is no playlist yet for those 3. And I don't think he has a modded 360.

Let's just face it like 90% of people with ODST are pirates, get over it.

This I agree with :)

I would say around a week before it comes out is when you will start seeing more people in the US playing it since most retailers will begin getting their shipments of the game. I for one cannot wait since I will be playing about a week early myself :D

Yeah, the French version got leaked early. Microsoft quickly made them recall it, but some people got their hands on it early.

This was released about 4 days ago, not worth grabbing even if your xbox is flashed, my cousin bricking himself now because it's on his play list.

Microsoft will only ban his 360 not his tag.

They're not banning tags...but they are marking some as cheaters and zeroing their GS.

That was for people who had hex edited it into their profile. People who have actually just illegally downloaded the disc won't be reset unless they've cheated achievements before.
