Deus Ex: Human Revolution Leak Lawsuit

Square Enix is suing a group of 15 "Italian nationals" for leaking a preview build of Deus Ex: Human Revolution to torrent sites a couple of months ago, reports Kotaku. Word is: "As part of court filings issued last month in Washington, Square Enix accuse the fifteen of logging into the servers where the demo was hosted using the access information of an Italian games magazine (GMC), where they found the preview build of the game, copied it and uploaded it onto the internet."

Oh. That's different.
Leaks in which you can complete, even if buggy, typically damage sales. Yes, it raises pre-release hype, but much of that hype goes into the leaked version and not a paid version.

Let's be honest here - if the game is as good as all the people playing the leak say then it would have received the same positive word of mouth the week of launch that it did the week of leak.

You were the one who implied that people having played through the leak wouldn't bother playing the full game as if it was a full experience or something. It's not is all I was saying, its enough to whet the appetite is all. If people didn't like Deus Ex before then this won't change their mind and if they did like it but were worried then it will just convince them to preorder or buy it shortly after release.

The forums on this site are not indicative of the gaming population as a whole...
In other words, I'm sure plenty of people will NOT buy the game based on playing the leaked version...

Says you, I don't see any evidence to support that. I'm sure this forum (like many others) is a decent sampling pool of a more general gaming population. Many interest groups and genre affectations are represented here, it's not just old PC guys whose last console was an SNES or something.

Either way, you haven't played it so you don't really understand. The only "bad" part of the game is the state of the build itself but the people seeking it out have the skill and mindset to understand that anyway. If this site doesn't represent the general population then there's no need to worry because the general population probably won't ever see the leak then.
