Contrary to the statements made by Xbox Support, Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb stated in a recent video interview with RedditGames that users will “Absolutely Not” lose access to their games should they be banned, by fault of theirs or not. It seems there may be conflicting reports on the matter.

Recently a Microsoft representative spoke to Polygon, confirming the prices of first-party games for the Xbox One, which is set to launch sometime this November at $499 USD.

The Microsoft representative revealed that Microsoft Studio games will indeed cost $60 USD, which is currently the standard price for all Xbox 360 games. As for third party developers or publishers, no information has been revealed yet on the cost of their games, but we’ll make sure to keep you guys updated.

In additional news, Microsoft’s Xbox Support Twitter account recently revealed some interesting news regarding bans and game licensing. They stated that “If your account is banned, you also forfeit the licenses to any games that have licenses tied to it as listed in the ToU.”

Do you agree with Microsoft’s policy on losing the licenses to all of your games, if banned? Let us know us your take on the situation below.
