See - we told you that pirating wasn't a PC-only problem, didn't we? And we were right.

More than 20 days before release and on the same day that the game goes gold, the Xbox 360 version of Fallout 3 has been leaked as a torrent.

The torrent has only been available for a few hours and we've checked on a number of torrent sites to see how available the pirated version is - and it's very available, unfortunately. Worse, the code has only been available for a few hours at most and has already clocked up between 15,000 and 20,000 downloads at a conservative estimate.

Because the game has been made available so early, the current speculation is that the code is a copy of an early review edition or a leak of the master code from one of the factories where the discs are currently being made. Either way, the torrent weighs in at a convincing 6.52 GB.

The official version of the game is shipping on the Xbox 360 as a lead platform but will also be available for PC and PlayStation 3. Fallout 3 goes on sale at the end of October - there are more details in our Fallout 3 hands-on preview.
