Damn… so Kotaku has the scoop that iCON (a ripping group) has gotten their hands on a stolen GTA4 game disk for the Xbox 360, ripped it and leak it onto the net.
Apparently folks were posting gameplay movies to GameTrailers and YouTube this morning, I found a few, but they are getting ripped down by Take 2 as fast as they are going up. They likely don’t want the rumor to be validated and folks simply head over to Pirate Bay or Mininova to grab a torrent of the game.
Also checking a few of the torrent sites I *do* see 6.5GB torrents up claiming to be GTA4, and for all I know they are… so if you like pirating go for it, and let us know how things turn out. I already got this baby on pre-order with a gift card, so I’m all set.
Update #1: Shacknews has the intro and some gameplay movies up. The weird part is that it’s from a PS3, so I guess both versions were leaked?!http://cdn.shacknews.com/public/videofeature/GTAGameplay2.flv
Update #2: Here’s a shooting and driving few-minute-segment from GTA4:
Update #3: Here’s another one, shitty quality, but it shows some awesome bails off a bike at like 80mph:
Update #4: Here’s one that shows how the cover system works and a nice shot-gun to the face for some poor pedestrian:
Update #5: Here’s one that shows how to use the Police Computer in the police cruisers when you steal them:
