More bad news for developers, publishers and probably honest gamers. We’re hearing reports that Killzone 3 has been ripped and uploaded to torrent sites for dishonest gamers to download and run on their hacked PS3s.
The file is apparently the EU version of the game and weighs in at a hefty 41.4GB (with a non-3D version available at roughly half that) so hopefully the size will be enough to put off most people who might otherwise have been tempted. If not, this is the first major leak on Sony’s console and is sure to be causing some distress behind the scenes at SCEE and Guerilla Games.
We’re sure it will be just another incentive for Sony to work doubly hard on counteracting the security holes that have appeared in the console over the past few months and we hope that a swift resolution can be found without further impacting on honest gamers’ experiences.
In the meantime, we urge all of our readers to support the industry and buy their games.
