Gears of War 2 leaked on file-sharing sites

Epic's 360 shooter already being downloaded two week's ahead of release

Epic Games' Gears of War 2 has already been hacked and is currently being offered on torrent sites over two week's before its official release.

One torrent site observed by GamesIndustry.biz had over 600 people seeding portions of the game and more than 6000 downloading the 6.76GB file – only 15 hours after it was uploaded.

The Xbox 360 title joins Fallout 3 as a Christmas blockbuster release marred by the constant piracy problem in the videogame industry.

The title is officially released on November 7.

You are only talking about only Gears 2..

Well i saw some site have all major releases Like : Fable II , Dead Space , Fallout 3, and others as well...

may be its the problem on CD manufacturing plant or at the end of distributor...

Every movie also has the same problem .. it'll release before its official dates and how? Because some of the guys who are working on retail store or CD plant or any where . Where they can easily reach all those stuff without any headache cause the problem...

Rambo 4 also gets some serious problem .. Its work print release 1 month earlier from its official theater date....

So who know .....
How to stop piracy....
