    I'd avoid playing unless you don't care about Live. I was the king of playing pre-releases. I took pride in getting achievements before the game hit store shelves. It just took one ban to take care of that for me. I just started play DiRT yesterday despite it being available for a week now and I've been dying to play that game.

    Now there is one trick I noticed. If you save to a memory unit and then later unlock an achievement for the 1st time with your hard drive, after loading the game save from the memory all the achievements from the memory unit will show as being achieved the date you loaded them and not when actually unlocked them.

    It's pretty safe to say there's no log like that, but I can't say for 100% sure. It should be ok. Note should be.

    Even if you take off your harddrive, the achievements will still show on your gamertag. And once you log on to Live... they know.

    If you want to check out your prelease (dl'ed from newsgroup w/o original = piracy = discussion not allowed here on AD), I'ld suggest making a new profile and try it under that.

    I have one, "Test", that I used for just that... testing. It's not set up for Live.

    There's no guarantee MS still can't detect it when I'm logged on to Live with my other gamertag, but I'm still running 5.3c on a ms28, just completed a non-stealth NFSMW (on Live gamertag with cable unplugged), and have logged in to download some new trailers and still haven't been detected.

    I have had a strong option about this topic ever since last year when Saints Row was rls early.

    Don't be a bitch and get on live to show off i got some game before release date. That's all i have to say, i know MS claims the Ban is to protect from cheating. but we all know thye real reason. Before the ban, ppl that showed off their pre-released games just give important pieces of info to MS, which inturn they use against everyone else.

    so be patient, or unplug till release date.
