    And the companies blame PC for loss of revenues.
  3. Yeah, only PC games are pirated and leaked early ;)

    I want to see Microsoft and the Studios eyes now that this leak is not for PC.
  5. Those DAMN PC users ruining it for everyone with their pirating when will they learn ... Oh wait

    In all honestly couldn't have happened to a nicer company.

    Its funny seeing people acting like sore losers. This pirating is going to effect MS in a very small way since the only people who can play this are JTag users. Which is a very small number of people. This isn't like a pc leak where everyone that has a pc can all of a sudden play the game.

    That is still the difference between PC and console. The console is doing the work to stop the pirating where in a PC game, the studio has to do the work and than everyone whines about DRM.
  7. WTF... who cares!!! This game sucks. As was the previous ones.
  8. The game is actaully not that buggy, its may crash when you open the guide button and there a cople of animations missing but that really it.
  9. One of last "good" and "original" titles around. Sadly restricted to that "silly" platform but good nonetheless.

    It is time they reconsider and give us a PC version . . . hint hint ?

    Good. Epic was damned arrogant in stating that the Gears series, with the exception of Gears 1, would be 360 exclusives and then blamed pirating on the PC for lost revenue. Now that Gears 3 has been leaked to torrent sites what do they have to say now?

    Arrogant bastards.

    Even still the loss of renvenue will be alot less than the loss on the PC.
    Think about it, Jtagging an Xbox is not as easy as cracking a PC game, PC piracy any 15 year old can do it, Xbox 360, it has to be a pretty smart person.

    That said I have freinds who

    buy a new xbox every year,

    break it, play all pirated games Online,

    and thn when there cosnole gets banned (MS do an anuual yearly ban) they simple Buy another xbox and tell me "games cost £40-50 new, we save on software the cost of a new xbox, which is £80 on ebay"

    An xbox 360 costs the same as 2 new releases so to break even you just have to pirate 3 games. Its Microsofts fault really instead of a yearly ban why not more often! Weekly?

    Yea this isn't the same thing as a leaked PC game because JTAG 360's are few and far between, meaning not a lot of people will be able to use the leaked files. Newer consoles can not use the mod because of a patch and it's a lot more work to get it working on able consoles than to just run a PC leak.

    and this is the reason why they didn't want to develop the game for PC, and yet the console game gets leaked :/
