Here’s a bit of bad news for Rockstar Games, Take-Two Interactive, and everyone who condemns software piracy: Grand Theft Auto 4 (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3)‘s Xbox 360 version has been leaked on the internet and thousands are downloading it.
The 6.36GB file is currently out on torrent, and those with consoles modded to play backups will be able to get a headstart on the game six days before everyone else can. The number of users participating in the download of the image is reportedly growing pretty fast.
We’re hoping that consumers will make the right decisions if they ever find the file on the web. Sure, it’s a cheap way to get ahead, but is it worth legal liabilities and the probable lack of online play? You make the choice.
