Watch out on Youtube there are spoilers on it already!
I've checked this out & it is true, but supposedly it is buggy as hell and some of the final missions are missing.....It only works on JTAG 360 consoles.
I hope it bricks the console of whoever download this. Also, shouldnt this game come out in the new disc format? @I_find_it_funny Cmon man! That aint funny. "Cliffy" visits N4G and he might be crying right now. You know how emotional he gets about Gears 3. :)
now that's what I call an EPIC fail
I don't see it on any torrent site yet, but if it only works on JTAG consoles then very few people will be able to run it eitherway is better to wait and buy the original
When was the release date? I havent been keeping track of this
Remember guys, you have to work with these hackers!
I dont know what the Duck other developers are doin ... it seems Unreal Engine is pissin on all multiplatform engines out there,especiaaly cryengine 3. This game looks absolutely effin amazing ... saw gameplay, for a second i thought it was first wave of next gen games. I know cliffy is douchbag but boy he and his team can deliver results.
This was bound to happen. A game as popular as Gears of War 3 kept tight under the lid would be very hard to do.
how does this even happen! must be a inside job by the employees. This always happens for major releases, i rather play he complete version then some bugged half finished product.
I agree, how does this happen? only Epic and Microsoft are allowed to play the game, so someone from one of the studios did this leak for the lulz.
BEWARE of the spoilers guys!
fact is they may have released it themselves, many companies do this to get feedback from a half made product to see what they need to improve on
That's not cool at all.
"game runs fine, clearly there is some graphically incomplete area's, characters mouths dont move when talking, fire extinguisher doesnt produce any foam, but other then gameplay appears normal" i'd like to play that, cant wait another 2 month for this great game
If you really appreciated the series you could wait :/
@MiLKJDO U said "Enjoy the bugs. It's a disgrace kiddies like you have the whim to brag about downloading a game you clearly don't appreciate. If you had any sense you'd wait like any other true gamer." Well its my life my console my brain..I do what i want with my games, If i want to download it now i can do so just like im doing now..Stop being so butt hurt.
If Epic really appreciated their fans they would have released in April when it was finished.
@WANNAGETHIGH U said "Stop being so butthurt" Well it's his life his console his brain. He can feel how he wants. If he wants to wait and purchase the game legally and not become part of the problem with gaming today then he can do so. Sure you can do what you want, but when what you want to do furthers setbacks advances in online gaming and adds to the problem then you can understand why most people are more than annoyed.
sounds just like Epic's finished game. q;
I am going to wait. Epic has been working on this hard, I'm not going to even entertain the thought of shortchanging them.
I don't want to post spoilers.
Use the spoiler tag or fake reports will roll in.
Only an idiot would want a buggy version early. From what I played of the beta, it ran very smoothly and I didn't encounter any bugs, but thats not to say the campaign at present hasn't got alot of bugs. Any true fan would wait for the game to be released, actually buy it and have a great time playing.
And people wonder why game prices are so high. Just wait, buy or rent the game and appreciate a complete and smooth game
lol, game piracy is just 3% of all, thant practicaly nothing compared to music or video and video on dvd dont cost 60 bucks
well maybe if they lowered the games prices then that would help killing piracy ??? and most of the times ppl pirate games because they are too expensive in their country not the whole world deals with US dollars you know
"and most of the times ppl pirate games because they are too expensive in their country" I can't afford a ferrari! Should i just steal one seen as it's ok as i can't afford one?
wow you comparing something that costs you 60$ to something that probably costs you millions ?? and yah if i stole a car OFcourse i'll steal because i cant afford it lol my comment was not defending piracy i was just giving my view on things and giving a possible solutions so you can understand me more my comment was like why not lower the prices of ferraris so ppl can buy them instead of stealing them if they want ones :)
that's a poor analogy as nothing is lost seeing as they couldn't afford it anyway with a videogame whereas with a car somthing is taken. I don't support Piracy but in some country's only the rich can afford video games...
I dont think that Lowering game prices would reduce piracy that much, maybe a little tho. Pirates are poor or cheap people, many of whom shouldnt even have a games console to begin with. Even if you lowered the price of new games way more than would ever happen down to 20$, pirates would still rather pay nothing and DL it. There are people who are poor and cant afford to buy new games in their country who pirate. And there are people who can afford to buy games who just DL every game they can so they can have more games then they can afford on their budget. both these types of people would rather DL for free than even pay $5.
@marioftw The correct analogy would be that you replicate the car without actually stealing it. Pirating is illegal but ppl should stop thinking it's the same thing as stealing.
Cliffy B is going to foam at the mouth for this.
cliffy should get fired lol kz3 was leaked as as well and so was infamous 2. pirates have no pride and dignity. besides its a j-ta version so only the extremely old models hat can be jtagged will be able to play it but who knows hackers might find a way around it :P
This leak happens 2 months early for god sake. This is like a new record
*thinks back to GeOW3 Jimmy Fallon episode* Goodluck shooting the monsters eye, you filthy pirates .
So this is leaked by one personnel of the dev team eh? That sucks...
I think that Epic plan lol
Inside job son
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA !!!!!!!GEARS 3 xbox's most anticipated game leaked ONLINE TWO MONTHS prior to release..looooool.PC gamers only PIRATE ! i said it first ! console is free of piracy.. its a fact :)
It's a good job Half Life 2 code didn't get leaked a whole year prior to release.
Lol that game was more than half incomplete when it got leaked and it got leaked because of Gabe Newell's intelligent mind that he kept the code on his MS outlook Application..Outlook is destined to be hacked...
Anyone who disagrees with me should read the story Eurogamer Posted about the hacker who stole HL 2 code from Valve.It has the full history of the Hack.
How the hell do you have 5 bubbles..
I am not bothered to check though
When doesn't this happen with Xbox360 games?
2 months early? Never heard of any other 360 game did that!
No it happens with just about every 360 exclusive.
Eh almost all high profile games get leaked. The game is still the fastest selling exclusive ever with over a million preorders already.
Fastest selling and highest preorders are completely different. In the time it took Gears 3 to accumulate 1 million preorders Halo and GT5 sold over 6 million retail copies. Also Killzone 2, yeah that game from waaaay back when, had over 1 million preorders as well. While it is an amazing feat to accomplish, it is not the first time I've seen it happen.
It actually reached a million a few months ago. In the US alone it has garnered over a million pre orders. And yes at the current rate it is selling it is the fastest selling ever. Will it be the highest selling? I don't know but I fully expect close to (if not over) 2 million pre orders by launch. My point is that even with the pirating this game is still going to sell amazing amounts. Don't see why you needed to bring in PS3 games into this when this is a 360 centered post which I was directly addressing. http://evtron.com/Evtron-Al...
Okay, I was bringing two high selling GAME series into this, don't know why it has to be PS3 vs 360 all of a sudden. You said "exclusive", that to me read as exclusive on either of the 3 main home consoles. Sorry I'm a gamer and play on more than one console. Also Halo Reach sold millions in the time it took Gears to accumulate over 1 million pre orders. Do you get what I'm sayin? If Halo Reach and Gears 3 were both on the market at the same time, Halo Reach would have sold more. GT5 sold 6 million in 2-4 months depending on who you trust, I trust the developer, so 2 months. Did Gears 3 have 6 million pre orders in 2 months? No, then it did not sell faster. That's all I was trying to point out to you, pre orders and actual sales are different. Especially since a pre orders isn't a guaranteed sale. So Gears 3 has one of the highest pre order numbers, that is what you say, not highest or faster selling. As for a 360 only game, sure it is the highest PRE ORDERED game. I don't remember any others that reached that feat. But when it comes to other game devices and consoles, over 1 million has been reached before. EDIT: Checked your link, they seem to be confusing SALES with PREORDERS as well. It may be selling the most preorders the quickest in 360 history, but those aren't sales.
Of course we can't compare sell through numbers right now because the game isn't released. All we can compare is pre order numbers and the time it took Gears 3 to reach 1 million is faster than any of the titles you've listed. I concede that I should of used the term pre orders instead of selling but you also seem confused at the point I was making. Its not the achievement of reaching 1 million or the amount but the amazing rate at which it reached that number. Here's a link from the Major himself about Gear's record breaking achievement: http://majornelson.com/2011... EDIT: Also there are several exclusive games on the 360 that topped 1 million (hell Reach hit over 2 million) but again, that's not my point. It is definentely not the highest but is definentely the fastest.
"buggy as hell" Might actually be the final retail version then
Well it could have some bugs but it sure is the complete game since the complete file haves 7.49GB of data.What M$ and Epic shoud do is release the game sooner if its ready.From the weight file it seems that Gears 3 its coming on new XGDR média since the maximum file that the xbox 360 dvd have use until now was 7.3GB.
Don't insert this leak into your Xbox!!! It will get chainsawed and stomped.
Its only for jtag consoles!Not every one haves a jtag and people with one just need to create a new profile and play it.If they dont use the xbox live profile theres no problem since jtag consoles are not meant to be connected to LIVE!
Look at all the little sony fanboys are so happy, but they cry when ever you put ps3 and hacking in the same paragraph. They are even against hacking on the PC but Notice how way more people here come up with reasons why pirating software is justified when its a 360 game. If it was ps3 being pirated they would all wish prison time for the pirates. Ohh dont mention geohot to these people, they will cry for a week.
Meh your just being paranoid. The only hacks that i have seen that people love are the kinect ones.
That was a very random comment. I've scrolled through the comments here before yours and the majority (not all) are either against the leak, or giving due ridicule to Cliffy B. But of course you bring up the PS3 hacking, hmmm... what do your people call that, damage control? That's right, damage control. EDIT: One person who probably fits your comment is khawaja07, that guy/girl is just an idiot.
Who the hell is celebrating? SERIOUSLY? I'm against anyone who does that to developers. Then you bring up the PS3 hack when it has NOTHING to do with the article. Brian is right. It smells like damage control to me.
C'mon dude, enough with the immaturity. No matter on what console it happens, it is bad
So is it any good? Only played the first one on PC,.. And I still have not finished it,.. Just feels so clunky and the enemies are bullet sponges.. I suggest that people who like Gears games, support the developers and fucking buy it.
wow that came out early. Suxs that pirates do this.
Very unfortunate. Did this come out of the hack?
Okay it's released online a good while before it's release and I bet you it will still sell like hot cakes. People wanna see how much piracy really effects console games, go check out the sales figures for this bad boy.
LOL the only good game coming to 360 is already leaked. So many people will pirate it. What a shame.
