The Dire (And Not So Dire) Consequences of a Halo 4 Leak

Unfortunately, Halo 4 was leaked in something so familiar to the franchise. But the unreleased game's unique position at the start of a new trilogy could complicate things going forward. (343 Industries, Halo 4, Industry, Xbox 360)

the game went gold 6 weeks before launch lol. A leak was inevitable.

I really want to know how it got leaked. Like by an ex-employee or maybe somebody handling shipments.

It had to be from someone that works inside of the print factory.

A shipment of Halo 4 was robbed in Mexico, every Gamertag that has been found with Halo 4 history(Last Played, Achievements, Playing Now)has been found to belong to people in Guadalajara,Mexico.

Halo 4 was bound to leak just like every other game..Its not the end of the world because people will still buy legit copies of the game come launch day...I don't support piracy but i'm not gone sit here and act like it just popped up on consoles in this generation...SNES even had piracy with a machine called Game Doctor you could rent games and copy them onto floppy disk..The harsh truth is piracy will always exist on all platforms and in all forms of entertainment movies/music/games...

I saw something like this on Reddit a little bit ago.
If anyone is interested.

Meh Halo is too unstable to loose sales, 343 did one heck of a job and totally just turned those worrying ppl to a believer.

Well lets take this into account here....Halo 3, Halo Reach and now Halo 4 were all leaked early. This should be strike 3. Cheap labor is costing them more money than they think now. These accounts are based in Mexico and/or possibly Spain...it's pretty obvious what took place here.

The most annoying part about all of this is that they go out of their way to flaunt it. I'd love to see these gamers get what is coming to them.

If I'm not mistaken all previous halo titles have been leaked and still manage to sell excellent.
