"Whoops"

Wonder if a copy was sniped during distribution? That's the most likely/common source as far as I know anyway. Seems doubtful somebody would have the case and all if an employee of the dev team had sniped it.

Hmm cool for those playing it I guess and provided they keep spoilers away from me then I hope they enjoy it. I myself though can wait 3 weeks..

It would be pretty cool to play it early but the repercussions of playing it before it's release is just not worth it in my opinion

I see there's already a lot of video up too. I wont be watching any though as I watched a ton of footage before Skyrim was released and it just spoiled it for me

A friend has already downloaded it... I'm very tempted to head over there to play it but I think on principal I'm not going to.

This kind of thing makes me physically sick. I feel so bad for 343i, who have been putting every effort they possibly can into this game for more than 3 whole years. They deserve far more respect than they are being given. I've been waiting for this game since it was announced and I'm going to keep waiting for it until November 6th because 343i deserves their well-earned money when the game launches.

Piracy happens and it will continue to happen and worse expand as average connection speeds get faster. 8Gb is already a 30-90 minute download for some and it's only going to get easier..

Yes it is a shame that this happened but 343i and Microsoft are still going to sell large amounts and make huge sums of money from this game. I mean Halo 3 leaked months before launch and still sold 8.1 million copies in 4 months. Sure this is a set back but it's not going to affect sales all that much.

You still need an Xbox that can play ISOs. So its not like just anyone can pirate it.

And this just proves that PC isn't the platform where piracy is a problem. Developer and publishers really need to open their eyes.

Piracy is everywhere it is on Consoles and it is on PC..

Now I know where you are coming from developers and publishers state that piracy is an issue and they only mention PC, why is this? Well I have a theory and it stems from the fact that Consoles are a closed platform and Microsoft/Sony have the final say in what games are allowed on the platform. As a developer or publisher the last thing you want to do is start spouting comments that insinuate that the Xbox and Playstation are a hive for piracy, as yes Sony and Microsoft know it's an issue but they don't want to hear it, ultimately it's good for business to keep them happy..

So overall these guys know it happens on all platforms there is no opening of eyes to be done, they just can't say much as they need their games on these platforms.
