Default Grand Theft Auto V Leak Leads To Bans - 09-15-2013, 03:14 | posts: 13,914 | Location: USA

It's the most anticipated game of the year, and the most expensive ever made.

That makes it understandable that Rockstar Games was not too happy when a copy of "Grand Theft Auto V" for Xbox 360 leaked onto torrenting sites on Thursday night.

In response to the leak, Microsoft is now banning the Xbox 360 accounts of individuals who are leaking video, picture content or playing the game early on Xbox Live.

At the same time, Rockstar and Take Two Interactive are shutting down every single unauthorised video ****** or photo from the game that they can find. Even "early unboxing" videos have been marked for deletion.

That hasn't stopped users from using social media to post all sorts of wild elements from the game from graphic sex scenes to mad cap violence.

You'll be able to see the madness for yourself when the game hits stores on Tuesday.

I don't know why Rocksteady are getting their panties in a knot. All the stuff I have read and watched have nothing but positive reactions associated with this game..

GTA is like COD, it sells on the name alone, so yeah i dont get what the problem is either, other than the torrent issue which is understandable.

Am I the only one who has zero interest in this game?

I do get a laugh over it being the 360 version that was leaked and feverishly pirated, especially after remarks from other developers in the past year pointing their fingers at PC gamers specifically.

No your not the only one I can never get into these kind of games. The closest I can get is sleeping dogs, but the combat in that game keeps me interested. If it weren't for that I would have dropped that one already as well.

+1.

Though i am hoping that after the brilliant Max Payne 3 and the apparently awesome Red Dead (havent played yet) that R* will carry over their lessons learned from those two games and give us something worth the money spent.

Console game piracy is huge and has been for years, especially on the 360 where you can even play on XBOX live provided that you do it correctly.

I love the freedom GTA provides, even if the stories aren't always top quality. Having an entire map and a wonderful physics system at your disposal is infinite entertainment for me.

yeah. The fighting style is unique in sleeping dogs. Hope gta would get similar to that.
But cars in that game is BS.

They mean playing while logged in to XBOX Live.

MS log the games you play, and sometimes if they see you playing a game for example a week before release, they will ban your account. This happens very rarely though and only happens in extreme cases such as this when there is an embargo on the game, and someone has clearly obtained a copy of the game by whatever means days before release.

Not to mention he flooded the internet with leaked videos and information which showed his gamertag. MS banned his console, not only his account.

i don't like GTA games, they get boring very fast. open world games must be like Borderlands 2 or stalker for me otherwise no go... but maybe this GTA could be good... the time it hit the PC, will be GOOD PORTED, then we take a look

Wouldn't have thought so. It would be a good way to stop people buying your products!

I approve of the bans for the obvious pirates.

It makes no difference. MS can't tell between a pirate copy and a legit copy.

So in theory, if you paid for the game then yes this could happen to you. It's the risk you take by circumventing the developer's license agreement.

Even is Microsoft didn't do anything, which they usually don't, Rockstar are banning people from their servers for playing the game early.

if they are banning consoles, kinda shows what the EULA gives them power to do and how little of your console you actually 'own'. You really don't own anything electronic anymore, they write it all up so that you are basically borrowing it, and they can take it back whenever they want. That's the power of licensing.

^^ yeah. I don't care for the people who were stupid enough to try using a pirated disk online (if that's possible?) but really sucks for those who bought a legit copy from a store which broke street date.
