Looks like the Pirates always manage to do the inevitable whatever the challenge may be. The most awaited game of the year GTA IV scheduled to be released on 29th of April has been already released on BitTorrent Networks almost a week before the official release date.
Scores of people have already downloaded and judging from the comments, it looks like this is the real deal. At the moment only the XBOX 360 version has been released, which means PS3 users might as well wait until 29th of April.
I’m not quite sure if this leaked version is a full featured version or just a demo, because the file is just about 7GB which is quite small. Youtube users have uploaded many videos of intro cinematic’s as well as videos of first few missions have been uploaded. But looks like Rockstar has been able to get Google remove the videos so that they don’t spoil the party.
Obviously the leaked version of GTA IV on torrents is illegal, and could potentially cause you some serious trouble with Microsoft, so it is safer and better if you wait a few more days and get a legal copy of the game, as everybody should – we have all been waiting for the game so long – one week will pass easily.
Also both the PAL and NTSC versions have been leaked. There are also rumors that Rockstar has asked retailers to sell the game before the official date sets in, considering the leak. Also the history seems to repeat itself in weird ways doesn’t it? Even San Andreas was leaked onto the Interwebs a week before the official release.
