A message to people thinking of pirating:

Don't.

What's the point? R* have been developing this game forever. They've put blood sweat and tears into both versions, and they still will to make the DLC for 360.

It was scheduled for release last year, but it was pushed back. The wait from March to October was bad, then you were told it would come out in "Q2 2008". You waited longer.

It's now 5 days away. You have to get past the weekend, go to school or work or college or uni on Monday, and then when you wake up, or even at midnight for the lucky few, you'll be able to play the game.

If you don't have enough patience to wait 5 more days after a 13 month wait, then you have no self control.

The moral of the story is this: you've waited 13 months for this game. You respect R* for making the greatest game series ever, yet you're willing to pirate the game, therefore not giving R* the money they not only need, but deserve, just to play it a few days early.

Make the right choice people.

Quoted for the epic truth. Scott, you've made more sense in this post than you ever have.

Seriously though, great post. Brought a tear to my eye. :')

Don't forget that not everyone will get to play on the 29th. Us PC players still have another 7 months [at least] to wait. :'(

im not saying i would download the pirated copy, but if i did, i would do it only to play the game early, i would still buy it on the release date to support further gta games plus ill need the box placed nicely next to all my other GTA titles

Wow, seven months? You'd think the turnaround would be faster what with the 360 development already done and all.

Anyway,

I applaud the intentions behind this thread, but I doubt that anybody that is pirating cares about the fact that they are snatching the dinner plates off the tables of at least hundreds of people. In fact, they are probably apathetic to the added insult that comes from stealing the work they (Rockstar) are most proud of, and in fact made with their (gamers, pirates included) enjoyment as the single driving force behind it.

But we can only vent our scorn and displeasure in their general direction. That and make sure we get our own version.

Well, I hope its sooner, but Rockstar hasnt even announced a PC release yet. And as they did with previous GTA games, the PC version was released a good 7 months later than its console versions.

Isn't it true that these people who are pirating this game wont be able to play multiplayer on XBOX Live? If so, I gauruntee most of these people will be buying the game anyway. I know in GTA, the single player is HUGE, but for me, most of the fun I have playing video games is when I play with friends.

Does anyone know? Does MS ban accounts if they play burns on LIVE?
