As you may already know, most of the pirated content on the Internet originate from the scene. When a scene group releases something (let it be a movie, game or an app) the release is usually announced to other members of the scene through IRC announce bots (Pre channels). It is a well known fact that it is not easy to have access to a pre channel. So how do we know which stuff is released by the scene?
Luckily, there are publicly accessible HTTP sites that index latest scene releases, Nuke information as well as .NFOs. We have presented several such sites we have used below. If you know others, fell free drop in a comment.
Dupecheck Project - Probably the best and the most frequently updated. Obtains info from multiple pre bots. Does not have .NFO information.
NFOhump - Another decent indexer. Updates sometimes slow. Clean interface. This was formerly known as Nforce.
VCD Quality - Exclusive movie release index site. Includes sample screens, .NFO and IMDB links for almost every release.
xREL - Contains .NFOs and has a ratings system. Frequent updates.
ORLY PreDB - Another excellent scene release index site. Currently down due to a DDOS attack.
PAJRAT - Update speeds somewhat similar to that of NFOrce. Automatically generates links to search for the release on popular bittorrent sites and other potential download locations.
NfoDB - Another indexing site. Update intervals are long.
Logic-Sunrise - Console and PC game releases indexing site.
As you may notice, these sites do not carry a download link to indexed scene releases. But once you know that the release is out there, just search for it on your favorite bit torrent tracker (or E2DK server, FTP site, Newsgroup or whatever) :p
