Xbox 360, PS3 and PC versions pirated

BioWare’s blockbuster RPG Mass Effect 3 has been leaked online via numerous torrent sites just days before release.

Despite not yet being available to buy, the game has already appeared on the internet allowing pirates to illegally download the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. A PC version has also been leaked, although a crack is required to play it.

Mass Effect 3 is the latest in a line of games to be pirated ahead of release, with titles such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops made available to illegally download before launch, whilst an unfinished version of Crysis 2 also reportedly made its way onto torrent websites pre-release.
