Pirated copies of GTA IV hit torrent sites

With less than a week until launch, a PAL version of Grand Theft Auto IV began to emerge on torrent sites earlier today. Apparently, a group called “iCON” got their hands on a copy and ripped it, making the 6.32GB download available to all.

The leaked game will apparently play on either a debug 360 or a modded console and is only compatible with the PAL television format – which means people in Europe, Australia, Japan and parts of Asia should be able to play the file. This isn’t the first time a GTA title has been leaked early, as it happened to San Andreas also a week before release. It will be interesting to see what Rockstar does in response.
