Not too long ago, we reported that Gears of War 2 had been leaked and was already available for download on the internet. A tip has come in today, telling us that a local, with the incredibly elegant gamertag: Balsak66 was already spotted playing Gears of War 2 last night while connected to Xbox Live. A damn shame that some members of our local gaming community are supporting piracy and for all we know there are more although some of them may have actually made some sort of effort to hide their crime. Piracy really is starting to become a serious problem in the console gaming industry and if we support it then we are going to slowly kill off the very thing that we all have in common, games. More after the jump. Come on guys, be a man (or woman) and do the right thing. Wait the wait and fork out the cash for the game that so many of us have been waiting for for such a long time. PC gaming is already suffering with Crytek announcing that they will no longer be creating games exclusively for PC as well as Epic Games announcing that they will not be releasing a port of Gears of War 2. Gaming has just become the new "Hollywood" and already so many people are making such an active effort to destroy it by pirating games.
Rodney Gray, a driver for a security firm that makes, packages and distributes game discs, was stopped by detectives for an apparent mountain of driving offenses after they saw him leaving his room with a red carpet bag. You can guess from the title what they found. Not only that but when they searched his room, they found even more. Destructoid reports that: "Rodney Gray was pulled over by detectives after they spotted him leaving his room with a red carpet bag. Gray ironically worked in security for Technicolor, a firm which packages, produces, stores and distributes game discs. When the reckless roadster was stopped, he was found with 31 of these discs in his bag. The cops went back to Gray's room, where they found more games and DVDs that had been liberated from Technicolor, including copies of Gears of War 2 and Fable 2. The would-be criminal kingpin quickly broke down and admitted that he'd been going nicking from work and was selling the discs on." Naughty, naughty Rodney, your little money making scheme on the side finally blew up in his face. Does anyone else think that the security division may need to hire some security?
