Battlefield 3 Oozes Out Onto the Internet Ahead of Launch

Can’t say I’m surprised so much as disappointed, Internet: the PC version of Battlefield 3 has been leaked some 12 days before its official launch date.

According to a story from Dark Side of Gaming, it’s now possible to track down and torrent BF3, which is just shy of 10GB. That’s almost a two-week jump for the most dishonest among us, and they probably don’t even have to use Origin.

Meanwhile, we’ll have to see if this has any lasting effect on Battlefield 3′s PC sales.

It’s not cracked yet

Not only that there is no official scene release, they are all CLONEDVD which usually end up getting cracked a week later after a Scene release.

So this probably won’t be cracked till after it launches.

that and it would most likely require you to use there website to even launch single player so who knows, it might be a lot more harder to hack since this is kind of a new idea and all or maybe not I guess time will tell.

these heads will pirate until the industry whithers and dies. They don’t care. Pointless to try and talk sense or reason. They’re totally selfish, shortsighted and stupid.

I don’t think it would be much more difficult to crack than any other game.

As for affecting PC sales… I’m seriously doubting it. The game would end up getting cracked anyway after release and it would undoubtedly be the most epic demo anyone has ever played. This isn’t a single player game anyway (even though it has a single-player mode).

The idea that a pirated version of a game hurts PC sales is RIDICULOUS, OUTDATED and just plain UNINFORMED!

@Brandon

So the idea that it doesn’t hurt PC sales makes it legal and legitimate? That idea is something I find ridiculous.

@JETZero

I believe he’s right, it only stops people from buying if the game is rubbish.

@Ryan Your sentence is worded wrong. I think you meant, you suck at Battlefield 3.

WOW beautifully put drsgfire. I love battlefield. Been waitin for this for quite a while and the game is friggin dope. This guy obviously has not played BF 2. Its not a game for wussies or people that dont know about tactic and strategy, Battlefield Bad Company 2 even makes a stab at COD in the campaign… when the squad is discussing whether or not to let their boss know about some new intel, one soldier says, ” Hell no cuz then they’ll send us home and send in some weak ass recon team with heart monitors on their rifles ” lol As for the piracy, will i get it pirated ? maybe. WIll i buy the game ? as soon as i have the money you bet i will.
