A single disc of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's PC version has been
stolen from a Fresno, California shipping warehouse. The disc is only
half of a two-disc set, but copies have begun circulating among pirates
online. The stolen disc was Disc 2 of the set, and it isn't immediately
clear which parts of the game it contained.
One pirate who was allegedly caught playing a copy claims he was fined
$5,000 and faces a permanent ban from online play. "Do not buy MW3
before release date. They will come get you," he wrote on Craigslist. "I
already went through it."
Activision hasn't commented on the theft. Modern Warfare 3 will officially be released on November 8th.
Can you imagine. knock knock, whos there, FBI, damn. lmao $5000 to play a mediocre fps title in this day and age is a little extreme lol
I don't get it.. who pirates stuff thinking it's ok. if i pirate something I know darn well it's illegal. At the very fluffy dog turd eating least I'm going to wait to play it after release day. I mean for the sake of my flat-chested Korean mistress I'm already not paying a dime for the game. Do I really need to be playing it early too? I mean wow son.. you can't wait until, heck 3 days after release when pretty darn sure noone will be able to tell who you are (honest vs pirate)? You wanna be that one dick head playing a game online that everyone knows isn't out yet so you stick out like the Trisomy 21 chick in a beauty pageant? One top of that we're talking about the most popular game in the world of the last 3-4 years?
I can sympathize with "pirates". no sympathy for this jerkoff. At the very least you should be smart enough to be playing offline. Noone ever gets caught downloading these games.. it's playing them. Unplug your bloody xbox ya lames.
$5000.. ha that's actually pretty darn payable. Anyone who gets caught the way he got caught should be paying double just for being stupid.
P.S. what up Fresno.. i grew up there yo.
Serves em right! I hate that shit where game companies sell you Disc Locked Content game, but don't pirate it

seems too boring to be construed imo. i haven't been reading the blogs but has this story been getting big press? because if this was some sort of inside job this is a company being insanely reserved. Never seen a game company try to fake PR and do it so mildly and so believably. If Activision were to try to fake a story about a pirate getting nabbed I think they'd go big.. this is the sort of thing they SHOULD do.. what they WOULD do is make that fine no less then 25k which gets settled for undisclosed amount, perma ban without a doubt, and there'd be a third element. Something I can't think of but something only a game company would do. Something crazy like maybe he's revealed to be part of a hacker ring or something stupid like that.
