A lot of PC game pirates were no doubt waiting for this to happen. A Clone DVD of Grand Theft Auto 4 (GTA 4) has leaked to a well known public BitTorrent tracker. From what it looks like, the leaked files seem to be untouched copies (clones) of original game DVDs. GTA 4 comes in two DVD discs. Images of both discs have leaked and the download is a whopping 13.8GB. It appears that the leaked release is a Multilanguage version of the game with English, French, German, Italian and Spanish languages (Multi 5). Whoever uploaded the torrent has included several screenshots of game folders (in windows explorer) as well as a screenshot of the setup program to prove that it’s the real deal.
Anyway, as we previously reported, this game is protected by SecuROM DRM. Even if you download the leaked release, there is currently no way to play the game. The game will install just fine but to actually play, you need to activate it online. As mentioned above this is an untouched copy of the original DVD with no modified exe or crack included to circumvent SecuROM protection. However, SecuROM protection has previously been cracked by groups such as RELOADED and non scene individuals such as DarkC0der so it might actually be a matter of time before this one is cracked. Anyway a lot of people (over 15000 leechers already lol) seem to be downloading the leaked image perhaps in hoping that they could play GTA 4 the moment a crack becomes available.
