Two high profile games, Killzone 3 and Crysis 2 have both been leaked on torrent sites, this means that they are available to download and play for free (illegally of course), however i know Crysis 2 has it worse.
We are poor but you guys are really really poor. Ha ha ha.../unnecessary article. Is this really what it has come down to? To calm the bloodlust rage of those we do not speak of, the author had to shift focus back to Crysis? PC leaks happen ALL the time, PS3 leaks, well apart from security keys, not so much.
Dude, Crysis 2 still hasn't gone gold yet. It's a big freakin' deal!
Bro think about what you're saying. The complete version of killzone 3 has been leaked vs the incomplete version of crysis 2 and you want everybody to believe that EA have a bigger crisis on their hands? Pun very intended
There both bad
it might be bad...but if you went and googled any game+torrent you will find it online...if you have updated your PS3 to 3.56 and D/L KZ3, you have just wasted 41 gigs of HD space since you wont be able to make the game work...if your PS3 is hacked...all you can do is play the SP when the MP is the core of the game and thats where most players will spend their time...i dont see it being that detrimental to Sony or PS3 gamers...Crysis even tho it isnt the gold version will eventually be leaked again, this time the retail version once its available to hackers
Shhhhh, that makes sense... Let them babble.
whats the point of discussing it
That makes me want to buy a PS3...seriously. Is anyone upset with me because being able to pirate games makes me want to go buy a new PS3? Edit: I'm joking btw, I don't have the time to engage in such behavior. I might as well rent a game if I'm not sure I'll like it. But I do see why people do it though...
They guy who wrote this would get a 3 out of 6 on the writing traits scale. sounds like his IQ is a few points south of zero. "well uh da crysis is da game dat all deez pirates pirate stuff on so Its the worstedest scenario cuz .00001 "whats the square root of 69?, eight somethin." ps3 moon landing over the moon. and ah I Know this fore a fakt caus im smaterer" gimme a break. This is just some guy people. just some guy... both games will be a slam dunk regardless. Very talented people working for years straight towards one goal. and all we can do is find out how to talk crap. send them a thank you letter for giving you something to do in your spare time. If not for them you would have nothing to feel superior about because you all know you cant do this yourselves.
Gamer pirates are stupid... Get a job already and buy the game when its available. If not then don't call yourself a gamer if you can't support the industry.
The Killzone leak is worse since its the gold version while Crysis still isn't the complete game. Plus it also shows that hackers are capable of reducing the filesize of the bluray files since Killzone 3 can be downloaded without the 3D for around 20GB instead of 41GB. If they can do that its only a matter of time before they compress the sound and CGI too, to make games even easier to download. If you open your eyes you will be able to see that the Killzone leak is worse but a leak is bad news regardless. @xtremexx You don't know that, hacking your PS3 if super easy now. There could be well over 100,000 pirates already and that number will continue to grow as more games become downloadable. In a years time it could be PSP scale.
but you will only be able to play it if you have a jailbroken PS3 and there are a small amount of those people
You sound just about as clueless as the author. What do you mean only if you have a jailbroken ps3 and there aren't alot?? Well it isn't as if Sony sells only a limited amount of hackable ps3's, ALL ps3's can be jailbroken without hardware modding. Just realised, you ARE the author. Could you tell me why exactly you wrote this lil piece of literature? Why do we need to know which leak is worse? Shouldn't this be a forum post? I mean come on. There has to be some sort of quality filter around here. This opinion piece from someone who has done ZERO research can't possibly pass for news around here can it? By the way, that percentage that you provided for the number of jailbroken ps3 consoles? Yeah it totals up to 480!! I mean lol come on guy! You think only 480 ps3's have been hacked with a free hack? Double lol at the moral of the story. It isn't the moral of the story you told. The moral of your story reads a lil something like this: And so without any research or math skills, I have concluded that leaking unfinished, unpolished, beta version of a pc game is far more damaging then leaking a fully complete game that has gone gold and thus will play exactly like the retail version because it is a ps3 game. In short, nobody is going to buy crysis because they already have an incomplete beta version but everybody will buy killzone because only 480 people have jailbroken ps3's
@FailOverHero do you seriously think that lots of normal PS3 users will go and hack their PS3? they know the risk and the amount of Hacked Ps3's will only get smaller since Sony has been banning accounts
The Crysis 2 leak is worse, because its a lot more accessible than Killzone 3 on the internet. The Crysis 2 beta comes in at 9.22GB, while the Killzone 3 leak is 40+GB. A lot of people that pirate in the first place, don't buy games because they cannot afford them because of the high costs of gaming in their regions (e.g. parts of South/Central America, South East Asia, Ex-eastern Bloc). and they can't splash out on unlimited broadband connections that offer fast speeds to download 40+GB files in a reasonable time. In a lot of cases, people can only scrape together enough cash to buy a console or a decent rig, and then are only left with no legitimate way of purchasing games. Its easy for people to condone piracy, when they are making more than enough money to spend on their hobbies or have easy access to Mummy or Daddies credit cards. But when people are living on the breadline and cannot escape the poverty and unemployment, it becomes a totally different story.
@Fail.. you dont know the stastics nor does this guy i doubt xD but just cuz its free dont mean people will do it lol :) Downloading torrents etc is free yet most of the gaming population doesnt do it :) dont get all heartbroken cuz not many people dl the hack :) (purly speculation on both of ur ridiculous comments :))
pc leaks are worse because no one is going to ban your PC for pirating.
lol sony hasnt banned anything! you guys should realize that there have been zero banned accounts due to modded ps3s. black ops is banning only if you cheat so i would say the risk is small
"The Killzone leak is worse since its the gold version while Crysis still isn't the complete game." no Crysis 2 is worse, why? 1. No one has the time to download a game thats about 41 gbs in size, especially to those who are capped in Bandwidth. 2.Crysis 2 isnt even Gold yet. this leak was most likely done as an inside job in Crytek. someone's getting fired.
Yes, because every pirate knows, you have to sit in front of your pc and watch as the game downloads for 10 hours or else space goblins WILL disrupt your download. Oh and I hear from Ziro it can be stripped to 20gb sans the 3D but I dunno if I believe in too much Edit: ok I just checked and there is indeed a 3D-less version for 20gb. My bad Ziro, sorry for doubting you
"Yes, because every pirate knows, you have to sit in front of your pc and watch as the game downloads for 10 hours or else space goblins WILL disrupt your download. Oh and I hear from Ziro it can be stripped to 20gb sans the 3D but I dunno if I believe in too much" you're an idiot if you think thats what i meant. sitting down to wait, or not sitting down to wait, its going to take a long time to download such a big file and people dont have the bandwidth to pull that off. And even if you dont download the 3d file, how are you suppose to play something that isnt intact? hack it? and on top of that, is it worth pirating such a game when you have to buy a blu-ray burner, and a disc which cost about $15-$20 per 25gb disc? you like all the other Asshole pirates in here are the reason why the games industry have to put DRM on our ass, or better yet, kill off a studio.
@a_bro You think blu ray discs cost $15 per disc!? hahahahaha. Oh also, you can just store and play off the PS3 hard-drive, no burner or discs needed.
Why would want compressed sound and CGI, that defeats the whole purpose of Blu-ray Size. Thats also why PS3 games have superior sound to 360 games. DVD9 lack of space.
Crysis 2 will be a good looking, but horrible gameplay mess just like the first.
from the leak its the opposite.. gameplay seems ok.. but its not that good looking.. but maybe that's just the beta build..
Crysis 1 had fantastic gameplay...just different than ur average low skill auto fire modded controller jack$ss gamers like u Dsnyder....why dis the gameplay which is superb Crysis 1 i played more than any other game and there is a little learning curve and different.....horror it is far from says me.
I played Crysis and i found the gameplay and story Decent at best. and i like to think of myself alot better then ".just different than ur average low skill auto fire modded controller jack$ss gamers like u"
i'm just reacting to the so called 'horrific gameplay' argument of Dsnyder....why do u have to reply for him??? just dissing a darn good game with subjective negativity...the story of Crysis was Epic and if u really take the time instead of rushing through it u will see that the gameplay and atmospheric story are intricate...people with modded controllers are making gameplay 'horrific' they are ruining it for everybody...just a bunch of losers.
The actual Kilzone 3 game is only 9GB the rest is .bik cutscenes. Remove the 22GB of 3d Cutscenes and the game and 2d cutscenes are only 22GB. So downloading it isnt going to take too long if you want to download it and you dont have a 3d TV.
Half life 2 was leaked 6 months before release & went on to sell 5 million after!! Black ops was leaked 3 week before & went to sell infinity copies! If the game is good it will sell seeing it's close to the hearts of pc gamers.. the leak made me more confident in my purchase!
5 million? Half-Life 2 is closer to like 14 million. They sold 6+ million at retail, and they said they sold roughly the same amount on Steam.
are u counting orange box?
I don't think so, but that would probably add another 6-8 million :l I'm pulling that from a quote that I think Doug Lombardi said in 2007 or 8.
I've read a few times of the 14 million mark.
Pirating KZ3 means hacking your ps3 and risking the wrath of Sony, and then not even being able to play online. Pirating Crysis 2 means getting the game in an unfinished state, and also not being able to play online. Neither seem at all attractive, even if one were morally inclined to steal games.
Well alot of consoles games that get hacked are made to play on pc so killzone 3 could become a pc game lol
:/ Getting KZ3 running on a pc would mean... at least rewriting the whole engine. And for that to be feasible one would need the source code for the game, not the compiled code that was released. I don't like the Agree/Disagree system here, couldn't the two people who disagreed have left some sort of counter-argument?
"meanwhile Killzone 3 has been leaked on the PS3 so the 0.00001 percent of people who acually jailbroke their PS3 and haven’t been banned by Sony will be over the moon." I'd like some proof to back up this percent. I'd also like some proof PS3 hackers can't connect to PSN.
I don't know about you guys... but I am getting both! Downloaded the Crysis 2 unfinished beta, and since i can run it at @30+ on a resolution better than console standards, I'm a very happy person. The Crysis 2 beta for me was just a optimization tool to see if it runs ok, compared to the first one, this one is actually optimized very good. Killzone 3 is and will be a good game to complete the trilogy if they decide to make this one the last. So I really see no purpose of fighting over one or the other. Just buy both...
Not interested in either games. Too busy with Dead Space 2
happy valentines EVERYONE, EXCEPT..the bloodsucking leeching pirates
I actually don't agree with the article. It is worse for Sony's high profile games to be able to be pirated. What's happening right now is that people are being given a very excellent reason to begin pirating on their PS3. SONY should cut their losses and tell stores to release the game before street date. Otherwise, not only might they lose a few sales of this game in particular, they could potentially lose sales down the road as new people start pirating for their system. Thats how I see it anyways. Pirating PC games? Psshh! Old news.
KZ3 is duplicated on bluray for 3D. its only a 20GB download.
The reason it's "nothing" compared to Crysis 2 is that you have to mod your console to run pirated games. It's a lot of work that your average Joe won't bother with. PC piracy? Just install and go.
PS3 Jailbreak takes less than 5mins on models prior to 3.55 and as long as you don't go online 3.56 still works. Its takes just as long to find a crack on PC so cut the crap. I'm getting Crysis 2 day one and will get Killzone 3 when it come down in price. @ Megaton With Jailbreak you can run PS3 games off External HDD, no need for Blu ray burner. Like I have said many times Crysis 2 leak has only just surpassed 10,000 downloads, its nothing. Also 41GB Vs 9GB if the download in not bandwidth limited I could get 41GB in 3 hours running at 50Mbps - 6.25MB/s.
Why is that people like this FailOverHero or Zir0 keep popping up in articles like these, with their comments clearly expressing some kind of joy over the situation with the PS3 being hacked and all. Here we have a free online network relatively free of cheaters, a company with a huge amount of gamestudios pumping out great games & more games, all that is potentially at risk now but our beloved gamingfriends overhere won't let go of any chance to rub it in. You're annoying (probably the answere to why you are here), like teamkillers in a multiplayer game, little pesky Geohot wannabees. What's the matter with you? Go fuck up something else.
you gotta jump through hurdles(metaphorically) to play a pirated version of KZ 3 on your PS3.
This is correct. People who think that hacking your ps3 is a breeze are being ignorant. It's not some simple 2 step process. The average person (in my experience so far) don't even know what torrents are, so it's not something everybody is doing. Just the people who really follow video game news are the ones interested in hacking their console.
Worst articel I've read in a long time.
kz3 is 42 gb.Seriously who is gonna download that one
People have fast connections nowadays, that might just take 3-7 days if everyone is seeding, theoretically speaking. Id never JB my ps3, not worth it.
People should be used to games leaking early by now.
Badly written article, but most of all - how many ads can you fit on one page? Honestly.
I seriously doubt Killzone 3 is gonna be pirated even 1/10 as much as this Crysis 2 leak. 1) 41gb vs. 9gb 2) You need a BluRay burner, no? 3) Crysis 2 can be installed on any PC. It doesn't need to be cracked or jailbroken. People pirating on PS3 are an EXTREEEEEEME minority. Crysis 2 is the more damaging leak, by far.
How do i ban this inserg.com from ever appearing on my front page? Sites that post stupid fanboyish articles should be banned!
Wow article must of been written by a fanboy. So far Crysis 2 leak has just surpassed 10,000 downloads and its only beta code and most likely months old version. The Killzone 3 leak we don't have figures on it and its full release unlike Crysis 2 beta build, also every PS3 prior to 3.55 can be jailbroken in less than 5mins. Also I downloaded the Crysis 2 leak but I can confirm I will be getting at least 2 different versions of Crysis 2. Steam version and Limited Edition (or Nanosuit Edition, still considering)
Well after playing through the offline campaign on Killzone 3, I can safely say it's not that good. It's rather short and the characters seem to lack soul or emotion, maybe it's just me? I just don't get a depth of these characters like I get from others.
I disagreed with you because I actually care what happens to Sev and Rico and am very interested in the story. I also disagreed with you because I think stealing media is a bad thing for gaming.
So you've never pirated a game, program, movie or music? I love how since now it's the PS3 that's being pirated all of a sudden it's "Horrible". It's such a hypocritical thing with this whole situation. Also, I couldn't even tell you which was which for most of the game, or the last game. It's very generic.
Whats bad about KZ3 SP? Is it the story or the levels? From what you are saying im guessing the story. I'm not surprised because I thought that KZ2 story sucked. The levels were fun though.
Why the story sucks depends solely on our own opinion. Not everyone dislikes the story. Rather i found it decent at best.
The levels are very linear, the story is so generic, I mean if it wasn't for above average graphics, there would be nothing about Killzone that stands out. In fact, during most of the game, if you didn't know it was Killzone 3, you might not even know what game it is, it's just a generic type of shooter. I wont be getting the game to play online, I was fooled before with KZ2, bought the game, my friends all got it, two weeks later everyone stopped playing it completely and traded it in. I think people as a whole prefer the COD or Battlefield style of FPS games.
Crysis 2 will be pirated more. No duh. But its not good being leaked either way.
Be the better persOn and buy it
im gonna download the KZ3 leak just to shut you people up saying 'noone will download 40gb its too big' lol. i can, and have, downloaded things MUCH bigger than 40gb, and i live in australia where we're 5 years behind the rest of the world in terms of broadband speed and download limits. but ive got 8mbps downloads and unlimited downloads now, and 40gb could be done in a day if there are a decent amount of seeds. neither leak is worse than the other. theyre both leaks. people downloading Crysis 2 now isnt gonna stop the people who wanted to buy it from buying it.
There are just as many 360 games on torrent sites as there are PC games, but it's alright lets just blame the PC gamers.
Oh my God can we please shut up about crysis 2 leak? Leaks happen, get over it. Crytek decided to streamline *cough* simplify *cough* their gameplay, lose the main character, force their engine onto outdated consoles and pretty much ignore the audience who really enjoyed their first one whilst releasing a console only demo. I can assure you, crytek were well onto their way of fucking over the PC market who helped establish them as developers in the first place (see Lionhead and Epic and the devs of Alan Wake) so you know what? Well now at least they won't sound quite as pathetic when they decide to announce their next game will inevitably be a console exclusive.
Both are equally bad.
Why is the Crysys 2 leak more important? Because the PS3 fanboys say so. One of them wrote an article about it. Cool.
