Gaming Blend "A week before launch and Quantic Dream's new supernatural adventure thriller, Beyond: Two Souls, starring Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe has been leaked to torrents... all 25 gigabytes of it."
Was this a news article, or some over-zealous PC gamer going "NA NA NA NA NAA NAAA!!!"?
My PS3 used to be hacked for ISO... but I liked the games so much I just decided to update my system and pay for every game I ever downloaded. I want to support my favorite developers. To that end I always buy new. I want to make sure the developers get the most they can from my purchase. I respect used games and as personal property, I can do whatever I want with it... but I still like to support my developers.
Dude hacking ps3 will loose free online privilege. Just like jailbreaking, it's a hassle to keep up with firmware update. the future games will require newer version firmware. I use to hack the ps2 but because of these reason I think it's not worth hacking the ps3 or 4
Totally agree. I sometimes even feel bad about emulating old games if they're less than ten years old. However, I also feel that if I own a game on another format, (say, Silent Hill 2) I should be able to download another version for my PC without being treated like a criminal.
I'm already downloading this game from torrent. In my country Bangladesh, We're kinda forced to play pirated copy of any game. Because the original retail game is not available at original price and local stores insanely charge $15 more. So only way to buy at original price if we buy digital copy. I have bunch of original games in Steam. Thanks to SONY that all PS4 games will be available also as digital copy. Now I can buy digital copy like Steam. :D
the local store in my area already have copies for beyod two souls i told the dude there to book a copy for me i'm getting mine in two days when i get my paycheck
Piracy on consoles and handhelds has been around for a long time now I remember piracy on the Xbox, PS1, PS2, Gamecube, DS, PSP, and all last gen systems as well (360,PS3,Wii) Not sure how this is news
Don't people remember all the 'mod chips' they used to advertise in the back of magazines and stuff?
GAMESHARK!! That shit fked up my Zelda file.
Yea I had one each for my Saturn and my PS1 and ordered them from mags. Not to sure why I got all the disagrees though but that's another subject
it still doesn't change the fact that 95% of PC gamers are pirates
ignorance at its finest
Well not 95%. Maybe 40% hacked. mostly offline games
There are no facts in your comment.
He probably got it from this. Don't know if there is any truth behind it though. Take it however you want to. Just don't shoot me. I'm just the messenger, I didn't say this. http://www.geek.com/games/u... Edit: Lol I'm still getting disagrees. Guys! All I did was post a link. I didn't personally call PC gamers pirates myself. Take your anger out on Ubisoft.
What a useless statistic. You can't just throw out a number like 95% and hope that it means something 95% with respect to what? where are the data distributions that support this? elaborate, since it is you who hold the data, or maybe they are just blowing smoke out their butts looking for reasons to give the pc platform the short end of the stick. And that statistic is way too high imo to be taken seriously without some supporting evidence.
Hahaha. There is no way in the world that is true otherwise PC gaming would look like a ghost town by now and it doesn't.
Even then there's a difference between someone downloading a game because they can versus someone who downloaded a game because they can and now won't buy the game. The leap from one to the other is 100 percent according to guys like this. It's actually probably far closer to 0 percent. Who knows exactly how much, but most people who download games, were never going to buy it anyways. So even if the number was 99 percent and real, how does that translate into actual sales lost? Some people use it as a glorified demo. They'll steal the first game and then buy the next 10 because they loved the first one. So where does piracy fit if 1 stolen game turned into ten sales? Hell even in this thread you have people claiming they felt guilty and bought games they pirated. Some people pirate a game because they want to know if it can run on their PC. The little secret about PC games is that sometimes games DO run if you are under the specs. So some people in this situation pirate games...sees that it works...and then buys the game. But of course that Ubisoft guy would count that as a lost sale. See the flaw? So how much are they really losing? Can't squeeze blood from a turnip, but in the gaming world apparently they think they can. If you ask me my guess is that piracy is probably on average a net even. The few sales lost because someone downloaded it who were planning on buying it are offset by those who feel guilty, and by those who pirated it...found they liked it...then ordered its sequels.
@jmc8888 well does that mean if i don't want to buy this game, i have a right to pirate this? man, do yo know how confuse of your words are? are you trying to use many colorful reason to make pirate game to be legit?
And 95% of console gamers are children who play COD see I can make sweeping generalizations too
lol, have something to back you up?
You based your conclusion that 95 percent of PC gamers were pirates based on one developer who were speaking about staistics involving their own games You have no place to ask me to back up my claim
You guys never lived in a third world country i guess cuz no way a person can afford to b buying original games all d time
@bryam, if you don't wan't to give the developers what they deserve for their hard work don't play the game.
76% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
Thank you for trying to make your opinion a fact! Stupidity has no bounds.
Excuse me as I return to my almost three-hundred game Steam library. Besides, we spend nearly $27,000 on our rigs every few months or so. Why would we risk getting a virus? That could keep us from playing all of our MMO's.
Thats cool? More often than not a game gets leaked before it releases.
... And people wonder why there are so many restrictions put in place by MS, sony, and Nintendo...
How many copies of Beyond 2 Souls were pirates going to buy anyways? Exactly. It's like saying New York Times isn't selling because someone was printing and posting it up on a wall in Zimbabwe. Except, since they can't read English, they were never going to buy it anyways. So were pirates going to buy this game until they could pirate it? Pirates are wrong. But people that blame pirates for some problem in the industry are ignorant. They also should look in the mirror and say to themselves....I'm an easy mark for corporate and possibly governmental propaganda. Because if you think piracy is harming the industry, congratulations, you will believe Richard Gere sticks gerbils up his butt.
I'm not the type of person to blame all of the industry's problems on Pirates but they are part of the problem. Zuggurcat, is right to a degree. Piracy is the reason some developers and publishers are so strict and implement certain policies. But some do it just to squeeze your wallets.
Tell that to the musicians who make pennies on album sales now thanks to mp3 downloads. Piracy is NOT good for the industry. If it was why don't developers just give away their hard work for free. You obviously don't work in the entertainment industry. If you did you would know how bootlegging products (games, movies, music, etc.) cost companies millions of dollars and leads to layoffs and studio closures. I know. I've been there.
Wait Richard ISNT a Gerbler?
@ jmc8888: respectfully speaking, to sit there and say that any restriction placed upon consumers isn't a direct result of piracy is a little ignorant. and your NY times analogy isn't even remotely appropriate because the reason why the NY times isn't selling has nothing to do with people stealing the information, and posting it somewhere else. it has everything do to with the way people obtain their information. and please, try to argue to a business owner that they didn't lose money from the products people have stolen from their stores because those people would have never purchased those products to begin with...
@Prodg52 personally I can't help but NOT at all feel sorry for some of the biggest musicians. They complain about piracy all it means to them is that they are getting paid 1m instead of 10m. poor them
This is like the only second PS3 game that ive heard has been leaked.the other i belive was KZ3.
Disgaea D2 was last week... it happens all the time, but most sites don't report it. Not like these articles are exactly productive. They pretty much just discourage buying games, anger people and make absolutely no difference.
I wish Gamestop would leak my PS4 early. :)
Hope someone is kind enough to do a review before it comes out so I can find out how much David Cage fails at being a game designer.... again...
If you go and play the demo you'll see that he doesn't. And if you are trolling you are awful at it and should A) Practice, or B) Stop.
I fail to see how a demo can convey the worth of a game like this, it's like saying 'Did you see the first ten minutes of Superman?! That whole movie is great!' The stories from Indigo Prophecy and Heavy Rain were pretty ridiculous and convoluted, most 'choices' didn't really affect the game all that much or wound up causing the story to make even less sense. I hope Beyond gets it right but I have very little faith based on past endeavors.
That is your opinion sir and I strongly disagree. But to each their own.
The most salt.
Actually, someone on Neogaf gave their brief impressions of the game (couldn't do anything more due to embargo). They liked it.
Thanks for being an awesome person, I'm gonna go check that out :]
The percentage of ps3 users that have consoles that can actually use these files isn't as high as you'd think, and like previously stated, games get leaked all the time. This is hardly news for anyone.
beyond 2 souls Graphic King
I played the demo earlier today, and it was quite gorgeous.
Don't know why you're getting disagrees. I played it also and it almost looks like a PS4 game.
pre order it from gamestop to get the steelbook Special Edition.
The only 2 things I download from Torrent is porn and music but if I were to download games I would download nothing but EA games, that why I always buy they games used they don't deserve my support.
"Too out of touch, out of touch to touch you So disconnected, going through the motions again So disconnected When will this cycle end"
I couldn't get the automatic door to open on my way out of the grocery today. One could say that I felt quite..... Trapt. >XD Ot: I just finished(sic) the demo about five minutes ago. **Minor spoilers specifically pertaining to the content of the demo** When I got on the motorcycle I had to quit. Good God this game plays great. It was hard to stop playing but I managed to exercise some self control! I'm gonna pace this game out. Perhaps I'll play an hour on Sundays to fill the void of Breaking Bad. Yep, that's what I'm gonna do.
Can't really make a complete comparison yet as we have yet to see Smartglass for XB1 really in action apart from at E3 with DR3. Personally don't care for second screen stuff but an app that tides in with the console to download stuff on the go and such is great. PS Vita is not really second screen functionality it's basically a portable PS4 it doesn't really tie in specifically to anything when playing a game/watching a movie for example as of yet. That is second screen functionality, remote play isn't really IMO.
I hope next-gen consoles will not be hacked for at least 5 years.
I doubt it, not with how similiar it is to pc hardware. beside make it tough and they will try even harder to hack it or form a team to get it done faster.
with x86 is pretty much a given they'll be hacked in a month.
What was it again console gamers were saying about all PC gamers being Pirates???
Cause the actions of few represent the actions of many /s. And I don't actually think there are a significant number of hacked PS3s out there for this to say anything about PS3 gamers.
i think this game deserves to be bought and collected!
See? Piracy happens on all sides.
I feel the same Strigoi. Steel book baby.
I don't jailbreak my PS3 or even my 3DS and Vita. So i will always support any devs that deserve my money. If you want to taste what Beyond 2 Souls before you buy it, just download the demo.
*Avoiding spoilers and still getting the CE* THATS HOW MUCH I THINK THIS GAME DESERVES IT!
Beware of spoilers folks..!!
I might call it Internet blackout time. I remember when someone spoiled Heavy Rain (well it was a fake spoiler thankfully) for me on the youtube comments. I don't want it to happen for real this time.
Can we just admit that it is gamers of every platform that pirate at this point? I do not deny it happens on PC. But it also happens on console, and it's hell of a lot harder to do. The fact that a crack for any major console release, that said, still rises to the top of places like Pirate Bay says that there are many, many people pirating on console.
