Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Leaked?

VentureBeat has word that all or part of the PC edition of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is in the hands of pirates after being stolen from a warehouse. The explanation of what was taken is a little vague: "Evidently, pirated discs began to spread quickly after an employee at a shipping warehouse (run by a huge shipping company) in Fresno, Calif., stole one disc. Itís not clear how many full copies spread this way, as the disc that was stolen was apparently Disc 2 of a two-disk set for the PC. Security may have been too tight for the thief to steal the other disc."

There is another way. Stop releasing games on the PC. No games, no piracy! No? Still enough money to be made on the PC platform? Then just stop worrying about things you cant stop or prevent. Stop worrying about things you dont even have a proof that they are damaging your sales.

Offer free trials of new software. Not demo's, full product free trials. You "buy" the game, pay the full price, then you have a 24 hour period where you can return for a full refund.

Getting a refund would be a little trickier...Someone buys a game from greenman gaming and then after 24 hours wants a refund, not sure how that would work. Should be easy on Digital systems like origin and steam, gets trickier dealing with 3rd parties.

Maybe the refund could be "store credit" at the online store like Origin or steam. All pc games are basically nothing more than codes now, you can't play almost anything without checking permissions from the company.

This would keep piracy in check. So far pc game publishes have been more inclined to simply squeeze legit customers harder with each new release while scaling back the content and quality of a product.

Make being a legit customer easier than being a pirate. It's worked for the music industry (itunes) and the film industry (netflix), it's time for the gaming industry to wake up. The pc gaming industry in pariticular, the consoles offer a lot of options that all seem easier than piracy. Redbox rentals for $2, try the game before you buy for 24-48 hours (depending on how late you want to drive back to the redbox). Retail trade in programs, enormous retail competition offering $20-$30 in credits.
