    Fallout 3 Already Leaked To Torrent Sites?


    Code of Bethesda's highly-anticipated follow-up to Oblivion, Fallout 3, has already been leaked onto the internet and is available on various torrent sites.

    The official game isn't due for release until October 28 in the US and October 31 in Europe, but the Xbox 360 version of the game has been hacked and at the time of writing had well over 2000 people downloading the 6.52GB file on one site alone.

    The hacked version of the game would only be playable on an illegally modified Xbox 360.

    Although a majority of console and PC games are leaked online before the official release, for a game to be distributed illegally three weeks before it hits the shops highlights the demand for pirated material from users - and the holes in security measures designed to prevent illegal copying of games.
    That sucks... I hope that it isn't the complete game, just part of a beta build or something. If you're willing to ruin what is probably going to be a great gaming experience by playing a hacked and downloaded version, then you're not a real gamer anyway.

    aren't there ways to tweak the firmware to play games and DVD's from other countries on consoles? maybe that's what they mean.

    bingo, you can d/l the dvd file from the net and either mount it to a HD on the 360 or burn it to a dvd depending on how you hacked your 360

    To burn 360 dvd's you have to have a specific dvd burner, not just some run of the mill dvd drive.
