Epic: Gears of War 3 spoilers are a bannable offense

Caution: bans ahead.

Nobody likes spoilers, least of all Gears of War developers Epic Games, who have said that they will be keeping track of anyone who uploads footage from the leaked Gears of War 3 single player campaign and are promising "repercussions".

"We're extremely dilligent about getting that stuff taken down and issued a call to fans to not perpetuate it." Said executive producer Rod Fergusson to Edge magazine.

"We have a banning system built into our stuff so we can go in and identify certain people." He told Eurogamer. "They'll be disappointed on 20th September when they can't get in and can't play. They may be banned."

Videos of Gears of War 3 showing key plot developments started popping up online after a pre-release copy of the game found its way onto torrent sites. The torrent version of the game is reportedly an unfinished beta build used for in-house testing, and according to a joint statement from Epic and Microsoft, is "not from a final build and not representative of what fans will enjoy when the game launches worldwide on September 20th, 2011."
