Grand Theft Auto IV Already Pirated (6.4gb)

Geekpulp reports that the the biggest release of the year is already pirated. They say "it is with a disappointed frown that I report that yet again the biggest release of the year is apparently already making it's rounds on a private tracker. The file is reportedly 6.4gb and will bring you momentary elation before an eternity of torment in the fires of hell"

this is bad news

as ps3 has not been cracked yet but 360 has this could affect some sales

but considering gta now has online i dont think many will risk it

Iamback3802d ago

LOL this can only hurt 360 sales. No one goes to store, buys new 360, than opens it to install whatever just so he can play GTA4. Joke.

NO_PUDding3802d ago

I don't think it will affect sales, but it certainly reflects awfully on Microsoft. Atleast in Rockstars eyes, no sooner has their game begun shipping, it's already plastered all over the internet, on the 360 version.

dan-boy3802d ago

what are doing with the other 43 on a blu-ray then?

sonarus3802d ago

@dan boy i have no clue but why don't you ask rockstar why the next GTA is going to be exclusive to ps3. Maybe 6.4GB is the limit for actual data on 360 :D

i have a buddy that does mods on 360's and makes copied games and i'm sure he'll have GTA by this weekend. he does the same thing anytime a big game comes out for the 360. he racked up when Halo 3 came out.

HORRAY!!!! i get to play GTA early!

gamesR4fun3802d ago

Just the pal versions out right now actually surprised it took this long lol.

JasonXE3802d ago

it was publish by "OXM" as a joke and it was already debunked.

proArchy3802d ago

Thats most likely the 360 version. the Ps3 is probably considerably larger due to it not being compressed. Still probably has some leg room on the Blu-ray though

masterg3801d ago

GTA is already closing in on the top spot of the 360 download list -->

This would not take long to download on bittorent.

Mystery_Person3801d ago

Where do they keep getting all the GTA IV games? Who was the first person to put it up on bit torrent?

grandixximo3801d ago

The first torrent tracker to have it, as allways was torrentleech, unfortunatly the signup are allways closed, i'm not in, but i have 2-3 friends who passed me the torrent :)

dan-boy3801d ago

lol what you just win a little victory then or something? dear! did it give you a bit of hardwood as you typed it and put in the link????lol. anyway, i'm now allowed to get a ps3 after the new sofa has been purchased. and we're going saturday to get one. i'll be joining the fanboy legion real soon! perhaps me and you can become a fanboy double-team??? your from the US i'm from the UK we could become "The coalition" lol

@ proarchy: ofcourse thats the 360 version. that machine was cracked straight away. it would be interesting though to see how big the ps3 file is?!

AzaziL3801d ago (Edited 3801d ago )

It's becoming all to common that those that are good and wait always get the shaft in life. Goes to show that bad people and stealing will always equal win.

DAMMIT R*, TAKE-TWO, MICROSOFT, SONY, AND EVERY RETAILER, RELEASE THE ******* GAME ALREADY!!!!!!!!!

That's quite the small filesize though. That sh1t must be really compressed...

edit: yes, thank you for the clarification chasuk08. It's just really unfortunate that 360 gaming shares so many parallels with PC gaming, though to be fair if the countermeasures werent as strong as say, the PS3, this could happen to any system. Hell, we could have another Dreamcast situation on our hands, with games requiring no modchip to play...

Fishy Fingers3802d ago (Edited 3802d ago )

This is the PC version? I find that very hard to believe as it's not out for another 6+ monthes.

More than likely this is fake or a 360 version. I know a cracked 360 version is avaliable, my friend is currently downloading it from a private tracker.

chasuk083802d ago

no he was saying, pirating games is why pc gaming is in dire straits, and yes this is the xbox versions, as isos can easily be made (apparently). By the way i dont own an xbox so i dont know about that.

Fishy Fingers3802d ago (Edited 3802d ago )

Yes ripping the ISO file is relatively straight forward, as long as you have the software needed.
You also need a cracked/chipped 360 to run it. Once again, that isn't a big job and pretty straight forward. Hell, the guys who runs my local fish and chip shop does them, for a fee.

Neurotoxin3802d ago

*Wonders how many people on N4G Download games for 360*

..... If you do and are a fanboy you are effectively ruining the 360`s chances of outselling the ps3 version.

*Laughs to self*

The Dark Knight3802d ago

YAYAYAYYAYAYAYAYYAYAYAYAYYA!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IM SO GETTING IT NOW

ahem...i me no..downloading is bad!!! VERY BAD!!

destroyah3802d ago

I by all means encourage everyone to pirate the 360 version. It's not worth buying.
