[Piracy] Gears of War

(No, I'm not linking to it.)

Sorry, Epic. I know how much it sucks to have it happen.

At least you can take solace in the fact that the percentage of 360 users who know enough to use the bits and are willing to use the bits is small enough that it won't affect your bottom line very much.

But still, the pirates are definitely sucking donkey balls on this one.

Any bets that the Xbox 3 is going to require an Internet connection so it can download the executables on first launch?

I've heard of a recent leak of the full version of FF12 USA, as well - over a month before the thing hits the stores.

And let's not forget the Halo 2 debacle.

This sort of crap tells me that companies should bother a bit less with copy protection and DRM, and a lot more with securing their handling chain of media duplication and review copies.

For the record, the sensationalist game media sites reported on this and it was completely fake. Some retard uploaded 3-4 parts of "gears of war" to usenet - it was just a few files from something else repackaged and renamed. It hasn't been leaked.

Oh, but the FF12 leak is real.
