GTA V Leak confirmation + PS3 Digital Pre-order Update

European PS Blog writes:
"Regrettably, some people who downloaded the digital pre-order of Grand Theft Auto V through the PlayStation Store in Europe were able to access certain GTA V assets. These assets were posted online. We have since removed the digital pre-order file from the PlayStation Store in Europe." (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

Hmmm... Well at least they didn't get access to the full game. That would be bad. Looks like it was a bunch of audio files.

Damn hacker asshats.

No don't keep your eyes peeled o.o keep them closed! Stay away from the internet until 9/17!
gedapeleda  +   555d ago
It's fake
kingPoS  +   554d ago
At this point I doubt it.

While they might now be able to play from the preorder. that doesn't mean other things can't be extracted.

Remember... some of these guys probably worked on or are familiar with mods like ENB for gta4. The file system maybe similar or exact or varied.
gedapeleda  +   554d ago
Most of the stuff is fake.
Just guys trying to be master trole, trust me I've seen a lot of shait. The random the black guy dies is not so much of a spoiler innit.

WTF is this world coming to?
Me-Time  +   555d ago
It's bad enough that he starred as a latino/italian/french/irish man in his own film about a true story. Now he's batman? I don't have anything against him, but what the hell? I'd prefer it if he didn't ever cast Blake Lively in one of his movies again while not trying to be the next Tom Hanks (Tom Hanks is the best though) than being cast as one of the most iconic superheroes to ever have been imagined.

He can only be one or the other. Center of attention in the film industry or a behind the scenes kind of guy IF he keeps going the route he's been taking. Again, nothing against him except for the fact that he's getting on my damn nerves.

Sorry for this very ignorant and off-topic rant.

solidboss  +   555d ago
instead of taking it off the store how about push the release date FORWARD....the game has already gone gold millions of people have preordered it, what are you waiting for?
waltercross  +   554d ago
Honestly I have no Idea why so many Disagreed with you, The Game went GOLD, and I'd think people would want it Now rather then Later. It went Gold after all. Hell, since it went Gold I want it now to!. mines already pre-ordered, did that in February!.
GentlemenRUs  +   554d ago
Going GOLD does not really mean the game is ready for launch.

Now that the games files/data/database has been completed, They need to burn it to thousands upon thousands of DVDs/BluRays while making the cases.

They give enough time between GOLD and launch to get all those copies made ;)

ZBlacktt  +   555d ago
Like I said the other day. This is why we can't have nice things. So now, I doubt Sony ever does this again. So now, you will have to wait until day of launch to download the whole game. Lord knows how long that's going to take. The PS3, not like the PS4 can't play games mid down loading. So you are just going to have to sit and wait it out.... Again Hackers...
animegamingnerd  +   555d ago
sony is probably never doing this again (though i thought it was too soon they should of done it like a couple days before the games release)
OhhWerd  +   555d ago
It was probably a test to see if it would be hackable, wanted to see if their protection on it was adequate or what more they would need. Sucks when a few always inevitably ruin it for the masses....
crazyeightz  +   555d ago
Hackers everywhere are currently thanking Sony for getting the game early.
Hicken  +   555d ago
Nobody has the game early...
GraveLord  +   555d ago
...so why remove the digital pre-order? Legitimate user didn't have access to them. Also, anyone who really cares about spoilers would have already been avoiding GTA V news anyway. I don't get the logic behind this.....
rainslacker  +   555d ago
Why would they have to remove it? From what I understand it's just some data files that got leaked, but the game isn't playable. If people have an interest in those data files, then it's likely already on torrents. The honest folk would just let it sit there until it was time to play.

This is one of those times where the honest customer gets screwed. I blame the hackers I guess, but Sony's reaction seems a bit too much.
waltercross  +   554d ago
It's a business decision, Think about it....One of the Best Developers(R*) made GTA V. Do you really want to get on there bad side? Also, Sony has to assume that the majority of people will peek.

EDIT: I mean It's GTA V!, People WILL Peek and Cheat!, It's not like It's Madden or some other game.

Told ya so. Good on Sony though for taking it down. It was only a matter of time..
Fergusonxplainsall  +   555d ago
Hope they don't ruin it for the folks who did buy it legitimately..On US PS store, over 600 people have rated the game.(to rate the game, they've bought it already)

Maybe a preload the Friday before release instead of a month before..

Sucks people have to TRY and ruin the experience for others..
I'll be ignoring the internet for awhile. Peace to all.
N4Gguy1  +   555d ago
Good descision gonna do that too if they keep uploading spoilers.
vigilante_man  +   555d ago
There are 600 Kentucky-Fried Idiots? How can you possibly rate a game that has not being played yet?
TXIDarkAvenger  +   555d ago
GJ Sony for having the game digital download. ROFL, leaked game because of you. clap clap
N4Gguy1  +   555d ago
Damn hackers only 22 days left and they're hacking the shit out of it just wait and see what will be in the game. Maybe PlayStation will block the preloads in future time because of hackers like these.

Rockstar Respond :

We’re pleased to confirm that Grand Theft Auto V has officially gone gold and we’re now preparing the game for release on September 17th for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Unfortunately, as many of you may already know, some people who downloaded the digital pre-order of Grand Theft Auto V through the PlayStation Store in Europe were able to access certain GTAV assets leading to leaked information and media from the game appearing online. You can read Sony’s statement on this here: http://blog.us.playstation.... As you can imagine, we are deeply disappointed by leaks and spoilers being spread in advance of the game's launch. GTAV represents years of hard work by many people across the world, and we all couldn't be more excited to finally share it with you properly this September 17th. Please stay tuned here at the Rockstar Newswire for all announcements about GTAV between now and game release as we definitely still have more to officially reveal.

As a specific note to our Social Club community, please remember Rule #1 right above the Comment Box. Please do not proliferate such things here as we certainly don’t want any misinformation spread from things that are fake nor do we want spoilers spread regarding anything that might be true. Anyone engaging in such discussion here at the Rockstar Newswire before September 17th will have commenting privileges revoked until well after the game’s release. Thank you all for your understanding and your support

sorry for the long quote ~

Mikeyy  +   555d ago
Nobody "hacked" PSN, the files were preloaded to the HDD and the guy is digging through his HDD trying to access them
condemmedman  +   555d ago
Lol relax I'm having a laugh.
WayneKerr  +   554d ago
Another free pass for Sony no doubt.

You'd have to be a complete Mongoloid to give Sony any of your personal details.

Honestly I recon your moneies would be safer with the bank of uganda
