Two Top Shooters Suffering From Piracy Crisis

This type of thing happens all the time. A new game is set to take over the world of gaming, and someone leaks it online just days before it's released, eating away at potential sales. However, these two latest leaks are a little bit more out of the ordinary.

The PS3 has long dodged hacking attempts and therefor, piracy. But since the PS3 was hacked earlier in the year, the threat of piracy has been ominously hovering over Sony's big black console. Although it's not the first game to be cracked and leaked, Killzone 3, Sony's upcoming AAA first-person shooter marks the first major title on the PS3 to be leaked to torrents.

Crysis 2 was also leaked to torrent sites over this weekend -- over a month ahead of the game's March 22nd release date. EA and Crytek have condemned the leak, calling it an incomplete build and saying that piracy is hurting the PC packaged goods market.

Out of these 2 leaks, Crysis 2 will be more damaging to sales. PC users, which make up a large portion of fans anticipating the game, are much more web-savvy and more likely to be tempted by a free download. On the Killzone 3 side, the game data -- over 40GB -- is large enough to deter many from going through the trouble to download.

Sony has been recently making headlines with a court case against the hackers who cracked the PS3. The console manufacturer has been releasing firmware updates to thwart attempts by would-be hackers, but these attempts have yet to prove successful.
