Call of Duty: Ghosts already leaked and pirated

PC gamers get blamed for piracy all the time. The master race, console gamers affirm, are degenerates who refuse to pay for games. Why then, is it becoming increasingly common for console versions of big games to hit the seedy underbelly of the internet first? One such game is Call of Duty: Ghosts.

We’ve received a few reports – which we’ve confirmed ourselves – that Call of Duty: Ghosts is already available to download, clocking in at about 10Gb. Usually, it tends to be the Xbox 360 version that hits torrents first, but in this case, it’s the PlayStation 3 version. We won’t link to the files, because piracy sucks – but anybody who knows how to use the internet should be able to find them.

We also got another report that legitimate copies of the game are for sale, on more than one format, in the Middle East already, well ahead of the intended street date – so expect the 360 version to be available for download soon.

Call of Duty: Ghosts is hitting retail on November 5 for the PC, Xbox 360, Wii U and PS3 versions. Next gen versions will launch alongside the new consoles.

        Sorry. But by today’s PC standards, the next gen consoles are mediocre at best.

        8 GB RAM, hexacore CPU, 500 GB stock HDD…sorry but it’s not 2010 anymore.

          PC’s are for porn and pirating movies, and consoles are for gaming. I hold a controller to play a game, and my dick to play on a computer. That’s the way it should be

            You are talking CRAP, the PS4 is much more powerful than you think.

            For Battlefield 4, the PS4 is very competitive with the PC version, in fact a major German PC magazine PCGH recommends the PS4 version over PC!!!!!!! Essentially, they praise the PS4 version as it is pretty much locked at 60FPS and you would have to spend 1000€ on a new PC to get the same quality and performance available on the 399€ PlayStation 4.

            So you have to spend more than double the money on PC to match optimised games on PS4, that is from a PC gamer magazine.

            PWNED! PC trolls like you put people off PC gaming.

            I have two jobs in IT. I’ve been gaming on consoles and PC for years and I can tell you as a fact that, although “high spec ones” is very generalized as a statement, you are wrong.

            The games on consoles are more optimized to work well on the platform. The optimization is usually more rigorous on developer company’s end.
            PC still cranks out more clarity, particles, framerate, and over-all more immersive experience as can be seen in comparison shots of PS4 vs. Enthusiast Gaming Rig images and video.
            The hardware in a custom or high-end gaming pc is much more powerful than some kids console.
            At the end of the day, High-end/custom PC=more power than console…but,
            console=best cost for competitive performance in gaming vs. the PC.

    Seems the folks are getting to grips with he ps3’s more and more. I mean look at the cash hack for Gta online ps3 version… Pirated games are always gonna be there, but the thing most of these crooked people don’t know is they can often miss out files that cause the game to crash or even have odd bugs.. Rather keep it legal!

          Newest generation of “modchips” and hacks are software based or are external box you connect to the console. No longer necessary to break open your console and void warranties.

          Usually within a few days after the dashboard update and new update is available for your hack of choice.

          ‘Chipped’?

          To play bootleg games all you have to do is take apart the DVD drive and install a custom DVD drive firmware on it. There’s pretty much no hardware modification involved.

      With the advent of Torrents, bad files are ‘mostly’ a thing of the past. After 1 person downloads it and realizes it’s junk, they usually post the information on the torrents download page, then remove their tracker which stops them from sharing to the community. It’s pretty much a real-time way to crush virus laden, or non-functioning programs.

        You Cellar Dwellar low IQ ugly fat PC troll, do you know how much more prevalent PC piracy is than consoles, hundreds times worse on PC. Very few ppl pirate on console as you have mod your console, and then risk being banned from PSN/XboxLive. PC peasant gamers spend so much money on their gaming rig that they then have to pirate and hack all their games.

        Crawl back to your cellar, retard.

I’m getting a PS4 with loads of games this Xmas all @1080p – FIFA, COD, Killzone, etc… all reported to look stunning.

            I don’t want to sit alone in a dark cellar huddled around my keyboard mouse and monitor like you weirdo peasant PC trolls. So F*ck off.

            I prefer not gaming at crappy resolutions with crappy framerates and crappy settings with all of 4 Exclusives on my platform.

            I can play from my couch on my TV with a controller too. But I don’t.

            Heh, stunning compared to what, PS3? Crysis is 7 years old.
            Think about that for a second. 7 years.
            I didn’t have a stellar machine at the time, but it still looked way better than anything on consoles.

            Yeah, and every time i played on multiplayer game on PC in the past, there were so many hackers, cheaters and aimbots I gave up on PC multiplayer gaming – no fun being killed by cheaters. On console gaming, in 15 years of gaming, I think I only been in a multiplayer hacked lobby twice. So enjoy your hacking, pirating and cheating on PC games you f*cking troll, we have much more fun on console.

            Another great thing about PC is dedicated servers. If a hacker does come on it takes about 10 seconds to find another server.
            Or I can set up my own and password it.
            Or I could join a Whitelisted server.

            Hackers really aren’t that big an issue.

            You know what Conor, millions of console gamers could not give flying f*ck about PC.

            True story, I tried to pre-order my PS4 few weeks ago, four of the shops said that demand and pre-orders for PS4 were so incredibly high that they could not take my pre-order and that they might have PS4 stock available next year. They said demand for the PS4 around the ENTIRE WORLD was at the same unprecedented levels. Only one shop took my pre-order and I hope to get my PS4 this Xmas. So back to your cellar and stop trolling about mext gen consoles, we don’t give a f*ck about PC.

            Oh yeah, I’ll repeat you will need more than £800 to £1000 on a new PC to match performance £349 PS4. So for the money, PS4 is far better than PC.

            The Last of Us metacritic 95, much higher than any of the generic PC crap that you mention, and console exclusives have had more Game of The Years than PC. And with next gen we will get all the PC games on PS4, to make up for the amount f*cking pirates on PC. And you wish you had enough money to afford my car peasant.

            Garry’s Mod is generic now? Funny since it’s one of the most unique games ever made.
            All PC games on PS4? ArmA has something to say about that.
            And as for making up for piracy on PC, EA published some numbers for last quarter putting PC well out in front of either PS3 and XBox360.It was also up by 8% over the same quarter last year.

            And yeah, what sort of idiot wouldn’t like a little more money? What a bizarre and redundant statement.

            Read that and weep, check out the BF4 PS4 youtube videos, all report the PS4 version is stunning equivalent of a PC more than double the price of a PS4, PCGH is telling the truth.

            Check Youtube, IGN, Vikstarr, Jackfrags and LevelCapgaming – all reporting the PS4 version of BF4 is stunning, comparable with High setting 60 fps on PC, so basically £1000 PC performance is the same as a £349 PS4.

            Oh yeah, all reported hands on of PS4 Killzone SF say absolutely stunning graphics – even PC gamers very impressed. Crawl back to your cellar troll.

            October 31, 2013 at 22:55

            Except for £1000 you’ll be running it on Ultra, not High.

            PS4 is comparable to PC,except with x2 AA, worse lighting and worse textures.
            You’re right Dick, comparable but not the same. Not nearly.

            October 31, 2013 at 23:07

            performance available on the 399€ PlayStation 4, and recommend the PS4
            version of Battlefield 4.

      I find it very suspicious that this happens right after a pirating get-together in CT.

    Well, how about this…Piracy and 2nd hand games are hurting the industry so much right. Now I don’t condone Piracy in the least. But How much will you bet that this game will still sell millions of dollars despite that fact. more than enough to pay Usher……F F F FAT CAT, MANDOZA

    The ONLY reason why PC was blamed for being dirty pirates was the PC users ability to download the game directly to their system. With consoles becoming more and more like PC’s, it has basically leveled the plying field and I am sure this problem will be seen less as a PC thing but rather a human thing.

    With the slowness of my 3g connection, even if I had a 10gig cap, it’ll probably take longer to download than to wait for the game to hit the bargain bin.

    Piracy on consoles have been going and has been wide spread ever since the Playstation 1.

    Only reason why PC as been branded as the “piracy platform” is that it could be quantified by looking at torrent download numbers where as the majority of console piracy was hardcopy based… until now.

        Old Mod chips is custom hardware (sometimes custom even custom silicon) manufactured by a few suppliers.

        For them to be able to sell these units at less than a $100 per unit at a profit the market has to console pirate customer base has to be 100k or even million units.

        Around 1 million xbox live users (5%) were banned for using modded consoles; taking into account not all (probably most) modded console owners were not using xbox live and the MS were not able to detect newer generation mods estimation 10% to 25% of 360’s has been modded.

        That makes sense, but then it should be fairly easy to narrow down the possibility of finding out who let it out into the wild.

    That’s nothing new. I had roughly a hundred burned PS1 games. PC turned it around with games so cheap that you’d feel like an ass to pirate them.
