Stopping Games Being Played Before Release
 
Using a system update that is released 23:59:59 the day before it is released. The game once in the disk tray will go through what every game does, showing the logo's of producers, designers etc, but the main menu is gone, so the play cannot do anything.

The system update will then cause the main menu to appear. There is the problem for people who don't connect to Xbox Live / PSN thou.

It would stop the leaks.

What does it matter if they got the game at a store the legit way? Its not like a team of bandits knocked off a delivery truck, some stores just released the game without caring/thinking.



The code leak on the other hand is pretty shitty.

i dont think stores released it early most people either work in a game store and stole a copy or, they r running illegal copies for example my mate as illegal copy got it today

Man I wish some of you would stop crying just because somebody got it early and you didn't. "Oh,we must stop the leaks" Please,if you'd gotten a copy early,you damn well wouldn't be complaining. So let it go.

I need to play this game.

Best idea IMO is to put like a compulsory 1mb update, but not uploading it until the release day.

It would've worked.

who care if they get it early or next week? those pirates are disgraceful to public. All I care is getting my hands on GTA IV next week. Whoever agree with me say "Aye"

What about people without online capabilities?

I am not the one complaining, and if I did recieve a copy now, I would play it right now throughout the night. The people complaining is Take 2. They - very understandably - don't want people to ruin thier first proper experience by someone who leaked footage of it all over the internet. I was just thinking of a way to stop this. Sure it isn't perfect as people without online capabilities are screwed, but it would have stopped topics including this one from being created.
