San Andreas Leaked

GTA: San Andreas - Rockstar/Take2 News | @ 08:14 PM MDT | By Kodo
As you may or may not have known, San Andreas has been illegally obtained and screenshots, videos, and the game itself are being spread around the internet. We ask that you remain loyal to the game as well as the developers. Please do not spread links or files. You can also help assist in tracking them down by sending an email to piracy@rockstargames.com. Here is Rockstar's official statement on the leak:
Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive Software are aware that an illegally obtained version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and images from the game and manual have been posted to various internet sites. The proper authorities are investigating the theft and are continuing to investigate all possible leads to ensure there is no further dissemination of our creative content. Downloading, possession and distribution of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, including making the game available on the internet, is theft.

We take the theft of our intellectual property very seriously and we are and will continue to diligently and aggressively pursue this matter. If anyone finds information on websites with links to unauthorized downloads, information, scans or videos, please contact us at piracy@rockstargames.com.

The launch date of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas remains the same. The game will be on store shelves in North America on October 26 and in Europe on October 29.

It's no shock. Half-Life 2, Halo 2, even WarCraft III. All leaked before the launch. It wont kill the game, nor it's popularity.

The guys that pirated it early, will always remember the first time they played the game. Pirated on a writable DVD. How crappy is that? I'd rather open the new case, and have everything official.

I agree, it's horrible and stupid. Horribly stupid in fact. I'm just wondering though, is it illegal to view the screenshots/videos?

#11, If a game is leaked, they usually change the release date to an earlier day so people will go get the game instead of trying to download it.

Ey do you guys realise that this site will most likely be dead for about a month or so after GTA: SA (the best game eva)
is released.
Anyway back to the topic, it not very surprizing that some one would do this, i mean people have been, are, and will continue to steal, play, burn and sell popular games.
There is just one thing i want to know.
How did they do it??
Did they go to the Take-Two Interactive building and pose as a worker or a janitor and steal it??

It probably got out the same way Halo 2 got out. Someone at the manufacturing plant boosted a copy and uploaded it to his computer at home.

At least, that's my guess. I am by no means an official.

I suggest if you know where to find pirated copies of the game or other info, that you keep it to yourself. For your own good. R* is not fooling around, and I wouldn't assume the admins on this site are either.

We've waited two years. A few more days isn't going to kill anyone.

You know, how can you shutdown a BitTorrent site when the site itself is not responsible for the contents of the torrents since people are the ones who make the torrents, not the site, simple, you can't, it's just like KaZaA, WinMX, Emule and any other P2P program.

Don't worry. Not a lot of people are gonna get to play it early. You're gonna need a few things that not a lot of people have.

A modded PS2,
A Dual-layered DVD burner,
A blank Dual-layed disc,
and a LOT of patience to download the humongous game.

It's all that illegal info that I'm worried about.

No, too many assumptions. You only need a modded PS2, normal dvd burner, and normal blank DVD, and broadband (which most have). With high-speed broadband it'd be about an hour and a half dl.

Too bad shit like bittorrent can't be stopped though, same with IRC. At least all the noobs on kazaa that think they're getting the game are all getting porn. suckers!

On one of the sites I know, it shows how many people are downloading it, and how many people are keeping the finished download open so other people can feed off it. Im not going to name that site as I dont want to help this crime in any way shape or form. Oh by the way its at 8500ish now.

This is bad news to the fans... but atleast this downloading buisness will not screw the games release date up like it did with half-life2.. If any one remembers that faithful month back in '03' when everyone were looking forward to a nice spanking new halflife 2 game being released days away

when suddenly out 'o' the blue some stupid idiot hacked into the Half-life2's producers hard-drive and downloaded the almost complete version of HL2 off of it. The beta version hit the black markets and HL2's producers pushed their release date to over one year away... And now we are still waiting for that game to be released, thanx to one stupid hacker...If this man was the same guy that stole the copy of San Andreas early i would train as a monk in the deepest forest for over 20 years just so i could find him with phsycic monk powers...seriously... Atleast Rockstar haven't punished their fans yet by saying ok that's it let's just hold it off till next year. That shows just how dedicated they are to their fan base. As for anyone that wants the site as to where they can get the video's and screens from... THE GAME IS BEING #^%& RELEASED IN LESS THAN 5 DAYS STOP BEING SO DAMN SYNICAL!!!! please don't oogle the spoilers.

What is sad is that the people who actually pay and support these companies have to wait and suffer because of it.

How can one justify piracy? I hear "I wasn't going to buy it anyway" as a means of justification. So, I ask; "If piracy was physically impossible, would you have brought the game or simply just never gotten it?".

It's theft, and it pisses me off. They don't have the right to it. It hurts the gaming industry, which hurts gamers.

Some thing else I forgot to mention: This makes me sick.

The games are often stolen at the publishers, sometimes a leak from a company, hackers, or a warehouse opening their stock early.

It's best just not to think about it :)
Part of me is jealous to a point where I'm bleeding internally.. I WANT TO PLAY IT! ... but then I can be patient, because I know I'll have a legit copy with that fresh new game smell which right there and then is satisfying.

The fact that it has been leaked out is a real bummer. I could never do anything so ignorant as to download an illegal copy. I will happily hand over some green for my official copy because I know its worth it. Just shows how foolish people are and I hope their puter explodes and spews out stingers lol. Sooner or later it will all catch up to them.

I know of 3 places handing out copys of this, but there is no incentive on R*'s part besides me being a good person, so I refuse to tell my sources, because I get lots of good stuff off there. Now if there was some incentive, I'd turn them in in a second.

Incentives? How about helping save hundreds of hours of work by dedicated employees? How about knowing that allow piracy to run rampant only increases the price for us, the honest gamers. Ultimately, piracy -can- destroy the entire industry.

Who ever did this should be forced to spend 10 days in prison for each second that they couldn't wait for the game to be officially released. And they should have to pay $20 every day to each of the the real gta fans while they are in prison. And any one who bought the leaked version should have there fingers off so they wouldn't ever be able to play any video game ever again, specifically gta.

Good work Zpappa.

Has anyone else noticed the irony of all of this? We're Grand Theft Auto fans, -condemning crime-. Despite the game being packed with instances of theft, we still oppose theft in real life.

Aren't we all supposed to become muderous demons? How come we still have a conscience?

Could it be, because, God forbid, violent computer games -don't- turn you into psychopaths? If we vilify piracy, why would we commit murder?

NO I wouldn't I have to much respect for the guys who worked on the game for US to rip them off like that, my buddy was saying he found it. I felt so sick that he even went to look for it, I told him to leave the site and if he dl'd it I'd kick him in the balls.

Well yeah there is NO doubt it's been spread far and wide, but if someone tried to sell me a shitty fake game, I'd poke him in the eye. Plus if I found the person who stole the game itself (THE guy himself) I'd hit him a brutal DOUBLE THUMB TO EYE!

bullshit, bullshit, bullshit! are you all telling me if you went to your friends house and he said "hey look i got SAN ANDRES!!Come play it with me!" you would say "I am sorry but i cannot play it, i would rather wait another 3 days, and i must also report you to the police. i do apoligise greatly!"

I didnt think you would! If you had a copied version right infront of you, wouldnt u play it? exactly!if half of you knew how to burn discs you would have it already! And why are u all so concerned?did u really think no one would leak san andreas?it was obvious!and r* wont lose THAT much money from it, compare like...30 thousand illegal copies to over a million real ones.

And dont act like you are sickened by people who cant wait 3 days because people in forums everyday are saying "i would kill a man for SAN ANDREAS right now" or "if i dont get SAN ANDREAS now i think im going to shoot someone on the street"

Stop bullshitting ok?do u expect r* to come to your house and lick ur arse clean or something?they dont give a fuck how u act about it so just stop

All you little preteen bastards can just shut up with whole heartedly backing up a company you know nothing about excetp that "THAY MAEK AWEZOME GAMEZ MANNN!!!!!11fivetwothree11!"

Ok, I'm sick of reading through posts of you idiots bantering about a stupid thing like piracy! If you've downloaded an MP3 off Kazaa or anything like that, you've backed piracy in one way or another, and going against it in this case proves nothing except that you're all hypocratic douchebags.

Source: A GameSpot reader.

The official story: " We don't comment on rumors."--Rockstar spokesperson.

What we heard: Yesterday, GameSpot was contacted by an anonymous reader who claimed to have first-hand knowledge about the theft of the original Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas discs. According to the reader, 14 finished copies of the game--which included the manual, cover, and game disc--were stolen by a group of workers from a manufacturing plant in New Jersey. The reader was also very careful to cover his or her tracks: rather than send a traceable e-mail, he or she used GameSpot's general contact page, which retains no information about the sender.
