    Seems as though the latest stalker installment is all over the "scene" sites, wasn't supposed to be out until Q1 2010 as far as I know, someones gonna be upset!

    Just means people who weren't planning on buying it anyway will download it illegally early and surely it'll be a bug ridden mess. I generally wait for a few patches before I bother with Stalker games.

    For once they'll have a decent excuse for the bugs :p.

    This.


    The previous 2 have had game crippling bugs for at least the first month of release, so a leaked version will be pretty much unplayable with no patch fixes until this official game is released.

    bit pointless really. I'll still end up buying my bug crippled version on release though :D

    Ya, saw some gameplay footage yesterday. Looks the same old same old. I'll probably buy it after the 12th major patch or so when you can actually play an hour without running into some kind of showstopper.

    Û Q: What the hell is this? Û
    Û A: This is Russian release, cracked by TRiViUM, with pre-copied Û
    Û english translation files. Û

    Û NOTE! Û
    Û We tested this on Windows XP/7 - x86/x64.


    Translations are probably google/babelfish quality...

    It haven't leaked. The russian version is out and obviously it is this that is now all over the pirate sites.

    Is this similar to when HL2 got leaked years back?

    This is exactly what happened with the previous versions of stalker as the Russian version always goes gold first and someone does a dodgy translation... And if its anything like before this version will be virtually unplayable anyway.
