Microsoft Confirms Gears Of War 3 Leak
The latest news covering Gears of War 3 is about the torrent leak; apparently the leak has nothing to do with the final build.
CVG reports that Epic and Microsoft have both responded about the latest Gears of War 3 torrent leak that happened over the weekend, letting fans know that the leak has nothing to do or represent that the players will have with the real thing. The game will be finally released worldwide on September 20, 2011.
The copy of the game works only on specially modified Xbox 360 consoles, the JTAG ones, which have been essentially turned into developer kits and can run any sort of applications put on their hard drives.
While these consoles are rare, plenty of pirates are already enjoying the leaked copy, and videos of its gameplay are popping up all over video sharing websites like YouTube.
Microsoft has already released a statement to IGN, saying that it is aware of the leak and is working closely with security and law enforcement agencies to track down those who downloaded the early build and uncover the source of the leak.
“We have seen the reports of Gears of War 3 content being propped on the Web and working closely with our security teams and law enforcement to address the situation,” Microsoft told IGN. “This content is not from a final build and is not representative of what fans will enjoy when the game launches.”
We’ve seen quite a lot of early leaks this year, from a 10-hour build of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, to another early beta version of Crysis 2. Still, this new Gears of War 3 leak wins the race, as there are still about three months separating us from its official release date of September 20.
