Set to release October 23, Forza Motorsport 3 has been leaked to various p2p websites. The download is said to contain the main game and another disc containing hundreds of cars and tracks totaling over 13gb.
Ouch, nasty leak
Yikes, piracy rears its ugly head yet again. Shame, but then again, with a download that big, some people may be put off. I mean, I know it's a tempting offer, but 13GB ain't chump change in memory, for one item.
Pirates have downloaded 2, 3, 4 disc games on the 360 already. Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey. Halo ODST. This isn't anything new.
turn10 put in a download code if you want to full game. fxck pirates. Most of them are poor dirty smelly low life scum.
This seems to always happen.
thats wat happens when u dont us Blu-Ray...
Pirate games that are made by deutschbags!
@1.5 pirate games made by german-bags? Learn to spell douche please.
Downloading and saving some people money ;)
I hate piracy, these people ruin.
Gotta love piracy on the "oh so mighty" exbox!
That hurts, free vs AU$90 is a tempting offer for some. I would much rather pay the full price and help forward the gaming industry. Piracy hurts it. Then again douches like Actvision don't need to charge extra for games either.
yh but theres no online play with pirate games
I wonder just how many priates there are for consolesa in the big scheme of things anyway? IT not like PC games or on of those DS flash cards. MOdding a 360 seems too much effort for most people. THe only consoles I modded was my Saturn (UK) and Dreamcast (UK)to play legit Jpanese games
The piracy scene for consoles is big, but not super huge. It's big enough that Microsoft is consistently updating their security and 360 and Wii games occasionally top ThePirateBay's most active list, but it's not rampant or anything. Modding a 360 and Wii are really easy, btw. Doesn't take that much effort.
"MOdding a 360 seems too much effort for most people" Really, it's easier than people think. All you need to know is what kind of drive you have, and you go from there. Though I don't support it because it takes away from developers that deserve actual sales.
Feel bad for them, this suck's for the 360, lack of exclusive's, console breakdown's, as well as piracy dam. It's not a competition if the competition isn't healthy.
You forgot this is what propelled PS2. There are other countries in the world where people cannot affort 50$ games so the best bet is to buy the console which is cheap and moddifiable to play $3 dollar games. They dont care about online or anything so here it is where the sales boost for ps2 came from. U think people in Asia are still buying 1000s of ps2 for buying original games? 360 is going to be replacing their ps2s when the ps2 dies down.
Yeah, piracy sucks.
3 million copies.
not high at all. forza 2 didnt sell big and forza 3 wont either
What? Forza 2 sold 4 million.. http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...
sure about that? def not one million day one lets look at bot's VGchartz pre-order data for usa http://news.vgchartz.com/ne... 150,000!? no noes 3 more weeks to go! have fun
Uncharted 2 only had 180,000 preorders when it was 3 weeks away from release like Forza 3 currently is. That's not a big difference, especially considering the fact that Forza 3 is a racing simulator while Uncharted 2 is an action/adventure/shooter game. You don't need me to tell you which if those genres is more popular. In fact, Uncharted 2 is doing pretty damn poorly in preorders if it's that close to a game in a much less popular genre.
Uncharted 2 comes out tomorrow so who really cares....wait a 360 game gets released on the internet early. Just about every 360 game is on the net prior to release. Funny how this is news.
Yet they sell millions of copies of such games as Forza 2, Halo 3, and CoD4.
Unfortunately every game seems to be leaked early on the 360 so this isn't anything new.
And on the Wii. And the PSP.
Couldn't happen to more deserving developers to be honest.. karma is a bich.
^^you said it for me.
if karma is such a bich, I wouldn't make statements like that and then be surprised when you get robbed.
Only on PirateBox 360
Well that is one reason the 360 is popular and gaining popularity, its very easy to pirate games. Im pretty sure we have a lot of ppl here who pirate games.
RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR im a pirate, But seriously I love getting the games early , and making my friends jealous:P
^^^ your name isn't Mike is it? My friend does that and really peeved me off when he had fifa a week early :(
no my name happens to be Albert :P
I wish i have a 360 to play games early. Unlike the damn ps3... waiting for Uncharted 2 is unbearable. :D
If it's a 13gb+ download, and one Xbox 360 disc can hold 9gb, that means the disc we install is a minimum of 4gb!!! I may have to cancel my preorder of this game because I can't fit this on my 20gb (I don't want to do it in little bits or something stupid like that either, I want all of the game, not part of it) and I don't have the money to buy a 120gb hard drive right now...
I think Piracy would only hurt the PS3, if you look at the Xbox 360 Halo 3 ODST was on the internet Weeks before Launch yet it still sold 2.5 million the First Week (That more then most PS3 game to date) Piracy only hurts Games the aren't highly made, If you put out crap then the word gets out before the reviews are out because of Piracy.. I don't think it's right but in this economy (USA) I can understand it.. $60 a game for something you can just walk through is a joke. (Saw The Game) I Feel they need to make thing call budget games, these would be games that would be half the cost of premier titles. Take Rock band , Guitar Hero, they have been putting out the same game now for years almost like expansion packs but selling them full price.. this is what drives people away from the stores I believe
How do the games get leaked. Does anyone have any knowledge on how the games actually get leaked on the internet. Should they go gold closer to the release day. I read that Cod MW2 hhas already gone gold but the game doesn't come out for over a month. So is it just a matter of time before it gets leaked. Again can anyone explain to me how this happens!!!
well from my understanding a couple of things can happen 1. The game gets sent out to testers before release and you know the rest 2. Some shops get their shipment in early and you know the rest 3. Some one in turn 10 leaked it
Scene groups have people who work for retail outlets or other places. All it takes is one scene group to rip the game and upload the iso to the web and off it spreads through the interwebs. Guitar Hero Van halen does not release until dcember but is already leaked because stupid activision already sent the free copies for people who bought guitar hero 5 promotion and someone ripped the game and uploaded it.
So it seems to be their own faults then?
LMFAO I don't get it? Where is the news? Isn't every 360 game leaked early on P2P sites? I had Marvel Ulitimate Alliance 2 a week before it released as well. Halo 3 was out 2 weeks before release.. etc etc.. Nothing new under the sun here
LMFAO @ the disagrees are yall disagreeing that the games on 360 aren't leaked early or disagreeing the actual piracy of it all? Brutal Legend is up for download as well.. Forza 3, Brutal Legend, Magna Carta 2, Where the Wild Things Are, FIFA Soccer 2010, Guitar Hero Van Halen are all available for download
They don't deserve any sales after the bull they've spouted. But, if they're so confident in their ridiculous hyperbole, then surely someone will buy the game, right? Unlike Forza 1 and 2. Didn't GT5Prologue outsell the whole Forza series, including any possible F3 sales? Yes, yes it did. I approve of piracy when it's to spite these bastards.
there is online play with pirate games, i play online all the time.. oops... and i dont get why ppl think piracy hurts the gaming industry. Ppl pirate music, movies, games, all the time. Has any company gone belly up from it? Nope, they are doing just fine, because the average person isnt going to dl music, movies and games.
Just to say if anyone is thinking of pirating the game remember that if you do you WILL NOT GET the free voucher for extra content. And it looks like its a lot of extra content. And tbh after playing the demo this game looks well worth the money.
Enjoy downloading that for six hours you douche pirates. Hahahah and you not going to get the free five cars and two tracks that buyers of the Forza 3 are going to get. I think they need to jail these parasites. So are they going to pirate PS3 games or are they too stupid to get around the easy protection that sony uses! Hahahahhahahaha
am still not downloading it
Technology is ever evolving. It will happen to Blu-Ray for pirates to copy content off of it. Remember, a IT pirates are smart individuals using their tech knowledge the wrong way.
Guess your name suits you well psycho....Because you must be insane if you thought that's why ps2 sales were that high...piracy? lmao give me a break, last gen if you weren't gaming on the ps2 I don't know wdf you were playing......ciao!
