    Info Modern Warfare 3 Disc Stolen From Warehouse, Triggering Piracy Craze

    Taken from Geeky Gadgets, only disc two though but it won't be long before they try it again :

    Ah, humans and their foibles. Rather than wait for the official release, news has emerged that a warehouse/secure location housing Modern Warfare 3 discs was burglarized, resulting in a pirated MW3 that’s been going the rounds.

    The details that have surfaced reveal a familiar modus in game piracy. Turns out a person working for a Fresno-based shipping warehouse got a hold of disc two. Since Modern Warfare 3 is a two-disc package, there was the slight reassurance that the whole game hadn’t been leaked.
    Still, such actions post a threat to Activision’s hottest title, especially less than two weeks before it finally explodes all over the place. Analysts have already predicted wall to wall sales for MW3 and having a piracy pandemic at this critical time might hurt the projected numbers, like more than a billion dollars in sales.
    To avoid this nightmare scenario, Activision are fighting back old school.

    Mine Countenance Whereupon


    That's great, I'd sure like to shake hands with the guy who did that!

    As for the "piracy" bull, would I be right in saying the only reason their fining so high is their afraid of spoilers getting out? Most decent human beings would buy the game like everyone else. Plus, anyone without genitalia in their head knows that pirated warez < bought warez
