Video Game Halo: Reach Leaked to P2P

Hackers recently found a way to trick the servers of Microsoft’s Xbox Live, making them to allow the game Halo: Reach to be downloaded without having a personal journalist review code. The game leaked more than three weeks before its official release date.


Unauthorized copies of the game Halo: Reach, the hotly-anticipated shooter, were spread at the BitTorrent tracker websites all over the world. The responsible ones for that are reported to be fans at Game-Tuts.com. They managed to get into Microsoft Xbox Live website private area, designed for journalists where they could enter their unique personal codes in order to get an access to the game. Nevertheless, the hackers managed to circumvent this requirement.

A spokesperson for Microsoft admitted that the company is aware of the claims made regarding a security exploit related to the game and is now strenuously investigating the issue. However, he refused to provide any further details at the time.

The new multi-player shooter Halo: Reach seems to be following in the same footsteps of the previous versions of the game – Halo 2 and 3, which both made their way into the fans’ hands weeks before the official release date. The new game, Halo: Reach, leaked over 3 weeks before the official release, scheduled for the 14th of September.

Bungie, the developer of the Halo: Reach, is taking its own actions to address the problem. It has given an advice to all those involved in the leak not to ruin it for the rest of the community by posting plot spoilers in the web. Bungie has even gone as far to ask hardcore fans to “go dark” and avoid using the Internet at all, all the way till the official release date of the game.

The developer has posted a message on its forums, saying that posting the related data and campaign spoilers from illegally accessed sources, including illegally downloaded copies of the game, prior to its official release will be considered and treated as a leak. Literally, it was addressing to the fans of the game willing to stay unaware of the intrigue, telling them that the company’s team of moderators is working hard to protect the core fans, but if they want to stay absolutely spoiler free, the best way to do so is to “go dark” and not use the Internet, or at least the gaming forums, until they have played through the entire game after its official release.

NaTaS avatarI would ventur to say that thsi will probably lead to a blanket ban of more XB Live accounts who are found to have scored trophys in teh game before the street date. This is how they handeled the leak of teh originals and some other games.
I support the P2P, but also support if Microsoft bannes your xb live or your system at the serial level for downloading and playing the games before thay are released.

D4T4 avatarSounds to me like it was leaked as advertising. Denial as part of the course, of course.

Kinslayer avatar"Go Dark" haha right. The Hardcore halo fans, who they are asking to go without internet for 3 weeks, Were probably among the first to download the leaked copy.

mikey18 avatarYou cannot stop it because I know I would do the same at going hard 24/7 then waiting for the issue date to be release. That's what you call unsecure & the lake of control Microsoft has on there own products...
....Many thanks (Sam) keep up the uploads....

CrashHole avataryour right, you cant stop it. But these dumb ass clowns playing a game before the release date are the ones crying all over the net because their console got banned. LMFAO! That free game just made you spend more than $60(cost of the game) on another console. Microsoft has made millions and millions of dollars from banning consoles all around the world.

In the end, does the public really win??
