Halo 4 already released before its actual date
Disc loading video was just uploaded on YouTube, but Microsoft soon claims copyright.
2nd update - Some Xbox 360 user already played it. Images found!
I bet it was bought from some euro store
Would've had a PEGI rating if that was the case.
Maybe someone in the factory quickly grabbed a copy and made off. What intrigues me is Microsoft quickly taking the video down which makes the leak seem more legitimate.
Probably a review copy, I dunno. I don't know why these stories are allowed on N4G; it makes people avoid the site for weeks sometimes.
I am going to have to stay out of N4G or any gaming site if I dont want the game spoiled by someone who gets off by spoiling games for people.
(Rumor Spolier Alert read at your own risk) Some dude posted here on monday about Cortana dieing as an AI but then Chief finds Dr Halsey and what happens next is mind blowing so do not want to spoil it for anyone if it is true.
STAY OF THE NET NEXT WEEK IF YOU WANT TO ENJOY HALO4.
I'm staying away from the N4G site when the reviews for Halo 4 comes out PERIOD. I know, without a doubt, that fanboy wars will erupt and sure as hell will not be pretty. Mark my words on that.
Disbelief. Why not show the cover? Why only two discs that can be easily PhotoShopped and printed ont any 360 disc on a case that could be for any 360 game?
Microsoft JUMPED on the copyright claim. This IS real. I cant find the video ANYWHERE. They dont do that for nothing.
Well another reason is that if it is a fake video and someone made it look like the worst game of the year it would put off people from pre-ordering. On top of that if it really is a terrible game and it has a lot of hype behind it (therefore meaning it will sell) then you dont want those people who are pre-ordering it to cancel.
well time to avoid comments on n4g :-/
well know in 25 days
we'll aahh haaa haaa.
It probably is, things do leak quite quickly
Not this quick though. I've never heard of a Halo or COD game or something else on this level being leaked this early.
Thats true but RE6 leaked like a month early too.
Halflife 2? it leaked. made them redesign practically the whole game.
Its only 3 weeks from now...
skyrim was leaked 3 weeks early, saints row 2 was leaked almost 2 months early...i can keep going, almost every game is leaked at least a little early and then uploaded on to torrent sites for people to play on their modded 360's.
@3-4-5 - That's funny because a Black Ops 2 demo build was leaked a month ago.
halo 3 was leaked 4 weeks ahead of release date. blops was out 2 weeks before.
Halo 2 was also leaked very early.. I remember because there was a massive campaign by fans to try and hack the hackers. Never seen a fanbase so upset about a leak.
looks real enough, although i would have thought the inside of the case would have been similar to the Dead Space 2 case having one disc on a hinge and the other behind it. Dead Space 2 Case ---> http://nerdappropriate.com/...
Looks legit. EDIT: : blue_cheese The guy just took the bottom disc out and put it on the other side to show us.
Looks fake, there is no cover for the case you can see straight through to the table and if there is actually two discs (even though I have never heard that it has and I've been following the game closely, but it may have slipped by) why would there NOT be a second holder for it or a game manual? Good attempt but pathetic in the end.
1 disk is campaign other is multi player which is only a install all plays off disk one. http://www.gamepur.com/news...
but you think they would have mentioned something about it being two discs. Having a surprise two disc game isn't something companies typically like to do. I don't mind if it is or not but the fact I never read anything about it in an interview before is weird. Like I said too if they did say something I could have missed it, it's always possible.
Summons, 2 Discs have been confirmed but you really don't even use disc 2. You Install Disc 2 on your Xbox for the multiplayer portion and then put in disc 1 to play everything including Multiplayer. Disc 2 is just an install disc.
The discs at least looks pretty legit to me. As for no manual or cover art, it's probably some kind of early review copy or something http://i.imgur.com/iFXv3.jp...
Why do people promote stuff like this? Fine you got the game before release. There's a high possibility of being band from Xbox Live and even a fine for you or the retailer. Is that really worth it.
You dont get banned. I have had a few games early, you might only have a few hundred people on playing it. gears 3 for example i had that a week early and it even had a message saying "you are one of the lucky few to play gears early please bare with us while we iron out a few bugs before release day" also had mw2 early and fable 3. just a heads up for those that get worried about this stuff.
You missed my point. Did you read what was in black and white? "Why do people promote stuff like this?" These people "promote" that they got it early by using YouTube and other websites. This is when they have a "possibility" of getting banned or fined. If a retailer is found to be in violation it could ruin them. Fines are not something to laugh at. Street dates are broken all the time but promoting it is foolishness.
I read the part about a high possibility of being band, and then I confirmed that you wont get banned. I know this from personal experience. Sorry for trying to be helpful to those people who get games early and are scared to go online. you sound paranoid. Also you dont get fined for going into shops and buying things. Geez oh!
Again your reading in the wrong direction. Take off your blinders. I can't believe I'm using my last reply bubble for this. Who cares if you play online. Who cares that you got the game before release. Honestly, who cares! However, where a company that produces a product like this cares is when you promote it using YouTube and other websites. Sharing videos online showing gameplay is the main issue. If it wasn't an issue why did Microsoft claim copyright? There are fines out there for many things, and I'm sure if a company "really wanted" to they would be more then happy to ram a lawyer down ones throat. I'm sure your going to reply with something that is way off in left field again. I'm waiting...
Im just saying that you wont get band for playing early, In your comment you said "There's a high possibility of being band from Xbox Live" and I know thats incorrect, so i thought id give you a heads up, You seem easily upset.
I would spend the next 25 days in Forge mode....what servers would even be available now that WOUDLN'T get you banned? And man I hope they don't ruin the ending for everyone in the next few weeks...
probboly removed from the fab plant
its not on xbox360iso or thepiratebay yet...if it pops up on there soon, then yeah it was leaked
I am surprised it took as long as it did.
is this a DVD problem?
Looks like it has been leaked, or this guy is a reviewer, as he has Halo 4 in his recent games played and has achievements for it: https://live.xbox.com/en-US... The game comes out in 3 weeks, many games have been leaked much earlier. Over on Neogaf people have been permanently banned off Xbox Live for even messaging the people with Halo 4 in their recently played list, and have posted the email from Microsoft explaining the ban. So it all looks legit, Halo 4 has been leaked.
The left part of the case has nothing on it, pretty much.
