According to reports at Ars Technica and Gamasutra the Xbox 360 version of Fallout 3 is already available for illegal download on torrent sites, a whole three weeks before the game’s scheduled release.
According to a report from GamesIndustry.Biz, the game has already been downloaded at least 2,000 times. This coming in spite of the fact users would need a modified 360 would be needed to even play the game.
Bethesda Softworks just announced earlier this week that Fallout 3 had gone gold, which may mean a leak of the game’s code took place at a manufacturing plant. Either way it looks as though the cat is out of the bag. There have even been reports of live streaming videos of users and their first experiences with the game.
