Whoops…Gears of War 3 has leaked online. You can download it here. The thing is, this is a developer’s build, so to play this you will need a debug Xbox console. A debug console is a special type of console that can play games that have not been officially released by Microsoft onto Xbox.
Sneak previews of games leak online all the time, but not code from a game that is still in development. Since this is very serious Microsoft is working with various security teams, including the police, to find out how this happened.
Microsoft said in a press release that the build that leaked online is far from the finished product and it is “not representative of what fans will enjoy when the game launches”.
This is an indication of how highly anticipated this game is. The fact that people actually went through the trouble of stealing code from the development studio speaks volumes.
Now with all the hype building, you have to wonder, can the game possible live up to our expectations?
