I would not want to even look up anything leaked a week before lunch... Can't you guys just wait ? Leaks do nothing other than ruining the game

I did this the moment MGS4 started having leaks and didn't sign in until I had completed the game. That said, I won't do this for GTA because spoilers don't concern me here.

GTA? No one GAFD.

Yes y dont you just switch off all the lights in your mom's basement and don't come out from your hiding so that you don't accidentally read or see on tv anything spoiling GTA V. Let your mom bring you your pancakes/sausages/eggs for your breakfast and just sit tight. It's not like anything else in the world is any important than a video game.

As long as the leaks aren't plot spoilers, I don't really mind. Other than that, this game is literally all I can think about and I'm hungry for details!!

Yea It's about time to shut it down for the week and pick back up with the hype on monday.
lsujester  +   562d ago
Plot leaks don't bother me with GTA. The plot is irrelevant to me, I just want to go through the city causing as much mayhem as I can.
TheSaint  +   562d ago
I'm pretty much on a media blackout, not even watching adverts on TV just in case of spoilers.
Batzi  +   562d ago
Agreed but it is too hard not to look. I already saw 3 short off screen gameplay footages.
showtimefolks  +   562d ago

New type of piracy protection on the 360 disc?, there will be a shed load of people complaining that their xbox's / copies of GTA V don't work come the games release, happens every time the disc protection changes.

The only leak I'm concerned with is when I wet myself at the midnight launch.
ravinash  +   563d ago
You need one of those adult nappy things.
Problem sorted.

Would also help when playing as well!

What about the lady friends, won't they get all hot & bothered. lol
sak500  +   562d ago
With comments like that you'd think bathyj would have lady friends? The only friend he's gotten laid with is his right hand.

I dont care about leaks or anything it's a game not a real life. I work hard for money to meet my expenses and wife helps me out as well. I play games to relax and destress not LIVE to play games. I guess i've joined the older generation now after started my gaming back in 1986 with commodore 64. At that time most of you were still swimming around.

To be expected... MAss Effect 3's ending leaked in HOURS after release.
aLucidMind  +   562d ago
It actually was first leaked months before launch and BioWare then changed a bunch of crap while removing a lot of things that weren't complete to make up for the time spent doing what amounted to barely any changes in the ending prior to launch. Then it was leaked again a couple days prior to launch lol.
WitWolfy  +   562d ago
That was the original ending, im talking about the RGB endings.
steve30x  +   563d ago
I love it. One guy starts a petition to stop GTA V coming tp PC but because of piracy yet the Xbox 360 version is being pirated already lol. The Irony. Yes I know its got a new DRM but its still out there.

Piracy exists even on consoles , that petition is super dumb.
WitWolfy  +   563d ago
Your statement is false.. GTA V hasn't been leaked yet so.. I dont know where you came up with this "the Xbox 360 version is being pirated already" BS.
steve30x  +   563d ago
Read the article.

"It was rumoured last night that the game had found its way into the hands of a piracy group, with one NeoGAF user claiming that the Xbox 360 version's second disc came loaded with a new type of piracy protection."
WitWolfy  +   563d ago
Was confirmed to be a fake buddy. Why don't you think it hasn't been released yet? Apparently the "leaked version" was one of those sms your number here to pay and get the password crap. And not just that but Even with a new protection the JTAG version of the game would've been floating around for hours by now.

I found five different GTA V torrents that are working online. My Xbox 360 isn't hacked so I am not Pirating the game and I have the game paid for , but the tool started the petition needs to wake up top reality

Why do people even leak games? it seems like everyone is so busy trying to ruin every ones gaming experience they lose sight of whats important, which is the actual game. its only a week away if you can't be patient or you can't keep you mouth shut then don't ruin it for me.
Hufandpuf  +   562d ago
A simple solution, don't watch it.
Cuders  +   562d ago
I enjoy getting on gaming sites, and reading news in comment sections etc i don't have to watch it to read it.
Kidmyst  +   563d ago
Let the leaks come, I havn't viewed screen shots or maps or "What all you can do" stuff for a long while now. I want to see this world on my own and figure it out for myself. Then look it up if I get really stuck. Took time off work as well just to play this. Can't wait!
rogerbalaka  +   563d ago
why don't they, up date there web site then. With six more days to go. one the game hits, who's going to the web site then, i'll be playing the game instead. you can find more on here then there web site. especially after they pushed the game back. come on.....
SilentGuard  +   562d ago
I'm sure Rockstar hates the leaks as much as the hype the leaks are creating for GTA5
espresso2go  +   562d ago
A week From release Rockstar "warns" us about leaks...

"Please, dont look at the leaks and get excited about our game"

Only people who care to beginn with look out for leaks.

Other Companies would call that a PR move, but somehow rockstar gets away with treating gta like its some holy scripture, and by that token hyping it till kingdom come.

THEIR JUST ADs and more Teasers !

and as for spoilers, if you dont wanna see the spoilers ...well DONT LOOK FOR THEM !

thank you.

How is this a PR move? At best, it is a company saying "there's asshats leaking bits of our game, so tread lightly". It's what every company says, or at least wants their customers, to do so those customers who DON'T want to be spoiled don't accidentally click and read something that had no hint of spoilers and wind up with even just a small or large bit spoiled/ruined for them.

i wish rockstar would take a clue from nintendo and release big games digitally a week before retail
windblowsagain  +   562d ago
Goto say, those graphics look much improved for current hardware.

Hopefully it runs totally smooth.
