it may be a leak but it is a verry unfinnished leak and has hundreds of problems that is why all the idiots getting it are coming here for help. it is probly a very early release or a demo copy as so far through a file is totaly corrupt meaning you cant play past the first bit.

Yeah there are hundreds of games you can download through torrents, and the unfortunate reality is that the people who download games illegally do not realize that if the company doesn't make any money from their product, they will not make another game.

A great example of this is Eastern Hockey Manager 07 I think it was... Everyone was downloading it illegally and now production has been stopped because they cannot afford to produce a new game.

The sad reality is the Ubi can't even do much about it. They can certainly track down the sources where the majority of the people are downloading games from, but as soon as you have the game on torrent then you can redistribute it again, and anyone else who downloads it can also redistribute it. It is almost impossible to take out every single person who is distributing the game.

Yes they can, they can do the same thing like how Valve tracked down and arrested the source leakers for Half-Life 2 in 2003.

They've got to do something!:P

They can't. Even on a certain popular torrent site alone there are more than 5000 people seeding AC. How are they going to arrest 5000 people, and more everyday? And that's just one site.

The thing is moqqy, a leaked copy, this far in advance of the release date, means that it was someone on the inside.
That could mean anyone from an Ubi employee, to a beta tester, a lot of people, but not an impossible number of people to check up on.
Whether Ubi think it's worth the time and effort to do so is quite another matter though.
It hit the torrents far too early to have been an actual cracker getting hold of a finished game sitting in a warehouse before shipping, and cracking the game.

I know, that's why I was wondering who it was, since it came so early.

Why would anyone want to play a buggy unfinished game.

Yah, I didn't download because it's so buggy

I didn't download it because my computer chugs on the sims.

Yeah, it's available to download. But the version in english that's available it's buggy.
And anyone know that it's available in all torrent sites... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

If someone wants to pirate Ubisoft games, there is not a huge amount we can do about it but I would rather people on the forums not talk about where or how to get it. We have a strict policy regarding pirated software and we will enforce it if needs be.

I did find it funny how people have got it and then complain it is not finished and crashes their PC. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

I like that bit too, especially the ones that argue and and say they bought the game, or pretend they're talking about a beta version they're testing like the guy in the Assassin's Creed PC Specs thread. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

All we need now is someone creating a thread about how AC sucks on PC because of all the bugs and crashes.

Moqqy wasn't very sarcastic in this thread, wonder what's wrong.

A leak! :O

It's good that it's bugged, they should by the game like everyone else.

Well...it is possibly, that they bought the game. You can BUY the leaked version at ebay....but well: it's illegal too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

nearly all games on ebay are pirated the differance is if you get one and complain ebay will refund you and take action against the seller. I had this happen with a couple of ds games since the chinees can make the carts but they made them wrong.

still funny tho that they are stupid enough to come here and ask for help even claiming they have a beta version even if a game doesnt have a NDA it has a support forum for beta testers so the devs can find easily any problems that are affecting people.
