Gonna Play TONIGHT!
So do I dare to play online?  Will the video game lords come down on my account?

Let me know what you think!
#2 Posted by prinny_god (327 posts) -

think for a second who are you going to play online with?

#3 Posted by StevieD130 (20 posts) -

I guess a better question would be, you get the achievements and stuff before the game release... are they going to disable my live account for that?

#4 Posted by prinny_god (327 posts) -

I don't know I was just say no one else has the game to play with

No you will be fine if you play online. How did you acquire it?

Or better yet, why would you want this load of crap?

#7 Posted by StevieD130 (20 posts) -

i was in my local new & used cd/video game/everything store and they had them on the shelves, needless to say, i didn't hesitate.

I'm jealous......

#9 Posted by Jolly_Lolly (3537 posts) -

Well, let us know what you think of it. I'm still skeptical because the demo (at least for me) was horrendous.

I don't believe anything is going to happen with you. Firstly, I don't think there's a way to detect any difference between the copies sent out for reviews and the retail ones. And secondly, even if there is, I doubt they would punish a player because a store broke the street date. You could genuinely be someone that didn't even know it's not supposed to be out yet, saw it in a shelf and bought it.

They're not going to ban you or anything, don't worry.

That's no reason why to get banned or anything, you are just lucky. Go play it; enjoy yourself.

BIG_Weasel... we're fighting later... :)

Alright, I have to say, without spoilers, I just played the demo level (in the actual game) the whole way through and it was much more fun and I'm digging the game overall right now!

Awesome!  Going to play the crap out of this game when I get it.

Lucky for some haha. I still gotta wait until the thirteenth for my copy :(

I would've so bought RE 5 if it had Dead Space controls.

#19 Posted by PercyChuggs (1087 posts) -

Go ahead and play it all you want. It's not illegal or frowned upon to play the game at all. You're the consumer, Capcom is happy you bought it, they don't give a crap if you have it early. However, they probably HATE whoever you bought it from.

Call me crazy, but I like RE5's controls because they AREN'T the same as Dead Space. Dead Space was my personal 2008 GOTY, but RE is a different type of game.

I dont think copying Dead Space entirely was the answer. With only having played the demo I do think that the controls should have been worked to keep Five current with that game play trend that they started with Four. I bought this game this morning but wont get to play it until tomorrow night. I had thought to buy it on X360 for ages (I played the demo on it) but in the end decided to buy it on the PS3 after loitering around the store with both copies in my hand for about 10 minutes.

I did get this totally sweet ass figurine though for my troubles. You could choose between Chris, Sheva or that big ass mofo with the axe. Naturally I chose him because he looked way more awesome then the others. I would have liked to get all of them though :( Have fun playing.

I got it on Monday and already cranked out 300 points on it which I've put online and I haven't been raped by Microsoft yet. I think you're in the clear.
And yeah, the game plays a whole lot better than the demo for some reason.

I've never been able to snag a game before the street date,one of these days i'm gonna find a way though.

No way dude, it's 100% retail.  and again, after two days of playing, it continues to be awesome.  If you like resident evil games, specifically RE4, you're going to love this game.  No BS, it's straight up crazy fun.  And my initial question didn't mean, who will i play online with, it was more of the does microsoft penalize you for having a game before the street date, which I am no longer worried about.  Anyway, just have fun with it man!  get it tonight!

If you really want to be safe you could just create a local account on your 360 and play it offline with that account. You wouldn't get any points for your LIVE account but you would be able to play the game and not have to worry about having your main account banned.
