Reach has been compromised, but instead of being taken over by the evil Covenant, Halo: Reach has been breached by online video game hackers and copies of Halo: Reach are now being trafficked via online torrenting sites. Halo: Reach has already sold over 1 million presale orders, but their latest challenge is fighting piracy and Bungie is more than prepared to do battle.
Online game hackers nabbed early releases of Halo: Reach and recently used them to leak new Halo: Reach in-game information including screen shots, game play videos, game details, and even a few Halo: Reach promotional videos. Bungie is fully aware of the entire Halo: Reach piracy scandal that has been going on and a Microsoft representative released the following statement to the very popular gaming blog, Kotaku: “We are aware that an unauthorized copy of “Halo: Reach” has leaked. We are aggressively investigating the matter. We have no further details to share at this time.”
With a game as important to the Xbox Live community as the Latest installment of the highly successful Halo series, both Bungie and Microsoft are bound to take notice and make example of all perpetrators. Mostly all released games will fall victim to online piracy, but playing the games before they are released – especially games as popular as Halo: Reach – will make game pirates sitting ducks to big companies like Microsoft and Bungie, that will be able to easily detect and ban them from Xbox Live.
Halo: Reach is a game awesome enough to be worth at least $60 bucks and took several years to develop; it only takes $5 to preorder a copy of Halo: Reach and it’ll hit store shelves in just a few weeks, so there’s really no need to pirate Halo: Reach. If you are considering pirating a copy of Halo: Reach from popular torrent sites, I’d recommend otherwise.
