OMG console gaming is dying....
Unfortunately I don't own a PS3 so I can't download the leaked Killzone. Thanks for notifying me though.
Haha This leak means the end of console gaming doesn't it? All of the console developers will ditch consoles and head over to PC game development.
Or perhaps they will ditch PC and console gaming and just develop on mobiles.
You mean develop for those mobile platforms that havent been thoroughly pwned ?
That dishonest console gaming community make me sick with all their piracy. They will surely kill the console as a format.
Stop advertising it Bit tech
Smug mode on
This is very serious... If it's happening on consoles, makes you wonder what might happen next...
What if something like this happens with a PC title? Surely this couldn't happen...
</sarcasm> (Still hoping the sarcasm tag becomes part of the HTML5 standard)
People can pirate games? It actually happens?
Never heard of it before. In my days of the ZX-81 & Spectrum nobody ever tape-to-taped their friends games.
And in the days of the Amiga nobody ever copied discs, or swapped them with their European "Public Domain" buddies.
And in the early days of PC gaming, nobody allowed their games to be installed on friends computers - it just wasn't done.
This isn't anything new, it's been going on for (quite literally) decades. There will always be a battle between the publishers and thieves.
And what has this tri-decade of theft done to the industry? Not stopped it being a bigger money machine than the entire Hollywood movie industry - that's what. Some do well out of it, others get burned.
Okay everyone - move along - move along - nothing new to see here.
Bit-tech is a news site, I would expect to read news like this here and I'm grateful to Bit-tech for providing it.
lol, this is worse than Crysis 2: "represents the full, final version of the game. "
if it were CryTek, they'd probably do what they do best, cry about it.
wait, they are already doing it.
i'll get my coat.
Why must the Somalians ruin it for everyone?
That's fine by me, I'm quite enjoying the Java ME programming we're doing at uni.
Making a remake/re-imagination of Road Rash for coursework,
So, what's next? Duke Nukem Forever? Portal 2?
I assume they will only be able to play the campaign and sony would be easily able to detect and block any attempts to use the multiplayer from these consoles and ban them from PSN also. They will of course be the first to complain when any of this happens or the quantity and quality of console games development is reduced. On the flip side it is unforgivable for Sony to even make these leaks of code possible and should track down the source, plug the holes and get the lawyers in.
both leaks from companies in europe? Crytek in Germany, Guerilla Games in Holland... Maybe they need to beef up security at european devs.
God I’m tempted to download this a couple of times just to prove that consoles aren’t infallible when it comes to piracy.
