Killzone 3 Leaked


Following the recent leak of Crysis 2, Killzone 3 has been leaked on numerous torrent sites (I won’t post any of the sites, I don’t condone piracy). This isn’t surprising considering the recent PS3 hacks released by fail0verflow. The game comes out on February 22, so I don’t get why someone would download the game just so they could play it 9 days before everyone else. Everyone should get ready for a huge Firmware update by Sony to negate this huge leak of a triple-A game. Hopefully this doesn’t happen to Uncharted 3 when it launches, because then the only way it will stop will be when the PS4 comes out.

    Simple fix. Ban all consoles playing the game that are not tied to people with review copies.

    the same kind of idiots that hacks their consoles and cheat or whatever.

    I agree with you on this one. I believe they should start taking more aggressive measures to put a end to this.

    I call BULL****! Hacked firmware is available all over the internet, and not JUST from failoverflow, either. Glad to see Sony is once again going to update the firmware to force even more draconian measures upon us, as if rootkit-style audio CDs and MediaGO installing unwanted crap and messing up peoples’ computers and devices, along with the last firmware update, weren’t already a show of Sony’s underhanded tactics and paranoia…

    One question: since the last firmware FORCES the PS3 to automatically accept updates (including interrupting games legitimate customers are playing and can’t save before being forced to restart), why are you even writing about it? Doesn’t anyone at Sony realize updates can only occur if the PS3 is connected to the internet?

    Guess what, guys: If the PS3 is modded, the owners WON’T CONNECT TO THE INTERNET, and if they do, they will make sure NOT to connect to Sony’s servers! So good job forcing all of us legit buyers to undergo yet another invasion of our privacy and inherent consumer rights while the thieves still get away – that’ll really inspire brand loyalty with this passive-aggressive bull**** of more intrusive firmware updates!

    You want to make it hurt the pirates in the worst way? BAN ALL ACCOUNTS (INCLUDING CONFISCATING PSN CREDIT), HARDWARE SERIAL NUMBERS, MACHINES, AND HARD DRIVES (at the same time) which have illegitimate copies of the game played thereon – now and forever! Go beyond M$’s example of simply banning boxes and actually freeze and/or destroy all assets which will force them to buy EVERYTHING again, making piracy a doubly expensive proposition!

    Yeah I just found a copy on a torrent site, and no I am not downloading it.

    1) I am not going through a bunch of crap to hack my ps3
    2) 41Gbs is anyone insane to even download that?
    3) ummmmm wouldn’t that look really suspicious to an isp?

    @TiredofLies

    1) They spent a lot of money on this, they have to protect their investment. If they bricked my system due to some update they would hear it from me.

    2) I don’t think they are going after people that have already hacked their system as much as people that might potential turn to piracy because of things like this. You said it yourself the person that mods their ps3 wouldn’t connect it to the network or even SONY’s servers. IF they did they are idiots and well there realy are a lot of people out there that would be stupid enough.

    I guess we will really need to see how this unfolds.

    A product should be used as the majority of consumers use it for. Meaning Sony should take actions to protect the legit users rather then bending to the will of the hackers.

    Besides….should an RIAA or MPAA version of gaming rear its ugly head….a 40gig file stands out like a sore thumb. Downloading that is just asking for trouble.

    That would only take an hr for almost anybody with a decent connection 20-40mb. These guys get to play the game early. So what, they get no mp and no psn. Sony fixed this issue earlier in the week. Personally I hope Sony bricks units instead of bans them. Guerrilla worked their behind off on this game. It is a shame this happens. The forums on numerous sites are already filled with killzone 3 ending and spoilers so be warned.

    @TiredofLies

    Its not a guarantee that sony will release a firmware update, but i’m sure they will before KZ3 comes out

    Beastxjason:

    …no lol….a torrent file with a great connection will take well over an hour for this. Hell the average torrent movie takes 15 minutes and I have a 22mb connection lol.

    besides that…most providers have soft caps these days.

    @kennygk: “Hopefully this doesn’t happen to Uncharted 3 when it launches, because then the only way it will stop will be when the PS4 comes out.”

    I don’t follow. What correlation do you see between U3 and the continuing vulnerabilities of the PS3?

    I just mean that hopefully uncharted 3 doesn’t get leaked
