This ain't Microsoft. They can boot you out/temp ban you because they have to do online testing but not perm ban like Microsoft.

no you can't. I review games and get promo copies of games. I've played online and I never informed sony I was a reviewer. So no.

Again, and I don't know why so few get this, you can be banned however you won't unless you are playing a pirated game.

I had Killzone 2 a week and a half before release date and I was never banned. I had GTA4 a week before it released and I wasn't banned. There are plenty others I've had early as well and nothing happened.

Do SONY/Developer have the abilty to ban you? Yes. Will they actually ban you for playing early? Nope.

This, people who post that 'I got banned for playing a game online early' are the people pirating it or got banned for a different offense. I've played many games before release (like Black Ops, Halo 3 and Reach, GTAIV and a couple others), and I never got banned on either the Xbox or PS3.

I think the developers of Dark Souls handled this perfectly:

Let people break the street date but populate the world with incredibly powerful black phantoms to tear them all a new *******.
