Weather it is leaked early or not, pirates will pirate it regardless. It just means the pirates get to play it 2 months before everyone else...

I have a feeling it will only be a few days before Crytek comes out and says f&*k pc gamers this is the last straw. Actually maybe a week after its released and their pc sales are much lower than they expected. This leak is going to draw a lot of publicity plus they have been extremely vocal already on pc piracy.

thats my thinking something like this happening to a high profile game only means that DRM and piracy laws are going to ramp up big time.

The fact that they've purposely crippled the game to conform to console gamers, which pisses PC gamers off to no end, will likely have nothing to do with the poor sales numbers, I'm sure... or at least Crytek will say it has nothing to do with the poor sales numbers... It is all piracy!!!

Your ISP won't think so if they decide to watch you and catch you doing it. You buy the copy you get.

Well I guess I'll be getting a PS3 after all and there'll be no need for me to get a bulldozer/socket 2011 sandy bridge build either. :shadedshu. The world ends 2012 anyway so I guess it's really not such a big deal:rolleyes:

Agreed, i like pc gaming and i don't think its going to end because of this but its things like this that drive away our best games, and also 9/10 when we do get crysis 2 it will be full up with bugs and errors etc that dont exist on the console version - and also DRM which means i have to buy it again if i reinstall my computer etc

I found it funny reading the last few pages and seeing t hefacepunch forum memebers panicking about the site going down with the massive volume of traffic.

On the game tho, DX9 from the first OP shots and 22 fps. Does not bode well.

Stop taking part of Crytek. They deserve this. If they are so incompetent and not able to control all their employees NOT to take the game home or uploaded to torrents, is their fault! Is even worst if they keep all their files on servers accessible to outside.

So, they don't need to be pissed of on PC gamers or PC gaming generally speaking, because is not their (or ower...) fault!!!!! CAPISCI!??

Surely this could only come from inside Crytek. How else would it get out. If that is the case then I think Crytek need to look at improving in house security.

Most of that isn't even close to true.

Bugs certainly do exist in the console versions of games, that is a huge myth that they don't. That is why console games recieve patches too.

Also, DRM does not mean you have to buy it again if you re-install your computer. I'm still using the original copy of Crysis I bought on lauch, and I've gone through probably 6 computers since then(not to mention dozens of re-installs).

However, what pisses me off as a PC gamer is that developers love charging us more(or even the same) for games that often don't get the same DLC as the consoles, or when we do get the DLC it is months or years after the console versions.

As my previous post stated, pirates are going to pirate the game no matter what. However, what sucks about this is that the news is picking it up and speading the fact that it has been leaked. That means your average joe bob user that might have bought the game is going to see this news and a huge "you can pirate this instead" flag will go off.
