Too many leaks in the industry?

"Close your windows, shut your eyes and for the love of god disconnect your internet and turn of your twitter feed and Email applications. Halo 4 has leaked and the internet is all in a buzz over it. As of yet the leak has not been nailed down, and 343 have preferred not to comment on the matter, as yet." (3DS, Halo 4, Nintendo DS, PC, PS3, PSP, Wii U, Xbox 360)

im failing to see why a leak is relevant to a games commercial success? when has a halo game ever had poor sales? never, so the leak wont matter to anyone who was planning on buying the game already. if people don't buy the game because of the leak, they likely would have been the people who wouldn't have purchased the game anyhow. also every game leaks, they have been for decades now, not sure why Microsoft is treating this like some big deal other than to get publicity for the launch of Halo 4. as to the spoilers, obviously don't click on anything related to Halo 4, simple as that.

yeah....purposely, and did Aliens help plot 9/11 with the government? Common guy get real. Some asshole guy at a factory stole couple of copies and it snowballed from there.

I agree, When I watch E3 and Gamescom live streams I want to be surprised by what is coming and most of the time you end up finding out before hand through your usual run down of websites.

This is nothing new, leaks have been going on for years.

Like how the Sonic 2 prototype for Sega Genesis got leaked in the 1990s.

Whats annoying is that they think we dont know they themselves leaked it. They are running on the tagline of "leak" because they believe it causes people to rush to see "what the company is hiding". Ugh it reminds me of the Enquirer or the Onion tabloid newspapers.

You know the Onion is fake right?

Thats my point. The fact that they call it a leak when it really is just some buzzword to get people to swarm gives it a "fake" nature. If they've got some info they want to tell us then just tell us already.
