Guerrilla Games’ upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive has been leaked onto torrent sites for filthy pirates to steal. This comes mere days after the PC version of Crysis 2 suffered the same fate. Killzone 3 was set to release locally on 23 February, but those with a big enough cap limit to handle the 41gig download will be able to get it right now.
Of course, the pirated version only runs on cracked PlayStation 3 consoles which, thanks to George Hotz, are now more prevalent than ever. But don’t forget that Hotz’s crack was never meant for piracy (insert sarcasm here) and that he gets really upset when anybody insinuates otherwise – stupid prat.
This is the first major piracy leak that the PlayStation 3 has suffered. Earlier in the year a pirated copy of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was seen to be possible on the newly hacked PS3 console. Killzone 3, however, is the first PS3 game to be up for download prior to a release date, thus marking an end to the console’s defences against rampant piracy.
Naturally, all this will do is hinder legitimate PlayStation 3 users as Sony will undoubtedly release a barrage of firmware updates in an attempt to combat further piracy.
