wolfenstein new order - pirated already

Scene group ‘COLLATERAL’ has already leaked the PS3 version of the game that can be played right away – provided you have jailbroken your console.

Moreover – and according to various reports – the X360 version* will be leaked really ‘soon’ (which may translate to a day or two).

for those of you who are disappointed the pc version is not yet available

As usual, the PC version has not been leaked yet, proving that piracy is a big issue even on consoles. The PC version of Wolfenstein: The New Order is powered by Steam’s DRM, meaning that it will not be leaked until the game has been unlocked on various regions.

regarding those words of John Papadopoulos, the author of this article - i agree. video game piracy is an issue unrestricted by platform.

anyway maybe people want to talk about this, the state of piracy today versus how things were at the beginning of last gen etc.

some quick thoughts of mine - piracy will always exist on every platform, i think devs/publishers would be best to try and minimise it rather than eliminate it.

Dirty console pirates.

Not to derail the topic, but check out this Day 1 patch for Wolfenstein, man.

Good job, gamers. Can't wait to see the first idiot to come in here and defend piracy.

Well can they at least let us know if it's good or not?

I want to buy this game but i'm not sure I should buy this game.

@freedomfreak: that's all right man. yeah i saw that, with my new connection a 5-7 gig patch would take only some 30 to 40mins. but still, that's pretty hefty. not a lot of people live in areas with good internet infrastructure.

I'm not going to defend them because it is stealing.. however i can't say i'm for placing DRM restrictions in video games considering that the'res quite a bit of games that sell quite a good deal of copies just for being a good game. Though some sell well being a half assed made/released game ( COD, BF4 )

Yep, many games have been pirated before they are officially released on console

I'm sure I'm not the only one who struggles with the double standard of pirating music and video-games, but nevertheless this sucks for developers

The squalid peasants at it again.

mha

anyways is it me or has there been nearly no advertising for this game?

#16 Posted by Roler42 (470 posts) -

And to think people were petitioning against a port for GTA V because "PC gamers are pirates"

I mean geez... Say what you will about hermits, but they at least respect release dates, lol

Dirty PC bast... oh hey, look at that.

#18 Posted by NathanDrakeSwag (5127 posts) -

Nobody was going to buy it anyway.

Games almost always leak first on consoles, dirty console pirates!

Jk on the last part but seriously, piracy is a big issue on consoles as well.

Console peasants are poor, so of course they will pirate the game if they can.

silly pirates

This can go right on up there with Halo 4 and GTA V that were on torrent sites before the release.

Most PC games don't show up on torrents until a few days after the release, or sometimes on the same day.

There are already walkthroughs /playthroughs of this game on Youtube as well.

50gig for the next gen versions apparently...

lolololol oh such bullshit.

""As usual, the PC version has not been leaked yet, proving that piracy is a big issue even on consoles. The PC version of Wolfenstein: The New Order is powered by Steam’s DRM, meaning that it will not be leaked until the game has been unlocked on various regions.""

lol so basically PC piracy is vastly worse than console piracy, but because Steam is DRM this proves that notion wrong? even though once its unlocked it will be pirated copies will be available because people already pirate steam games.

50 gig dam that is huge.

The game will flop anyway I think. The last Wolfenstien title had absolute shit sales, it's baffling why they would make a sequel.

I guess reading comprehension and actual facts aren't your thing

wis3boi can you change your avatar please, it looks like a underage child showing under boob over and over. Just because it's animated, doesn't make it ok. Really bad taste my friend. Seriously, not joking.

Y'all know I don't be liking the pirates.

Pc version hasn't been leaked yet, because it requires someone to own the game first....and many PC gamers are too tight to pay full price

#37 Posted by KungfuKitten (20665 posts) -

Maybe this will drive sales?

You're assuming that the people who initially pirate the console versions actually purchase their copies?, come on matt, you're not that naive are ya?.

Bunch of no-good, free-loading, low-life scum.....I hope they fail in life.
