A final version of Sony's upcoming sci-fi shooter, Killzone 3, has been leaked online two weeks before the planned launch, according to reports.
We haven't downloaded the leaked version to check for ourselves, obviously, but the 41.5GB download is reportedly genuine and even includes Killzone 3's 3D mode. A 'half-fat' version is available to download without 3D support too, apparently.
Killzone 3 is the second triple A title to be leaked online far ahead of release this week, with the PC version of Crysis 2 getting leaked
only a few days ago.
The leaked version of Killzone 3 will only operate on hacked PlayStation 3s, but apparently represents the full, final version of the game.
Sony is currently engaged with a lawsuit with PlayStation 3 cracker George 'Geohot' Hotz, who was ordered by a US court to turn his hard drives over to Sony for inspection recently. Hotz has defended himself fiercely
, fearing that the lawsuit against him will set dangerous legal precedents if successful.
