First GTA: San Andreas. Then Halo 2.

And now, <A HREF="http://www.the-bards-tale.com/en/" target="_blank">The Bard's Tale</A>!!
NEWPORT BEACH, CA (October 22, 2004) - Interactive entertainment developer and publisher inXile entertainment today announced that it is considering some form of leak of The Bard's Tale, its eagerly anticipated action-role playing game (RPG), as a strategic plan to follow a growing trend among Triple A games.

"The Bard's Tale is a highly original game in the same category as a Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Half-Life 2 and Halo 2 so we feel some sort of leak that sounds similar to what they have experienced may be the next logical step in our launch plans," said Brian Fargo, founder and CEO of inXile entertainment. "Of course we would immediately condemn the leak and make every effort to stop it if we proceed with it."

"In The Bard's Tale, our main character, The Bard, is an opportunist always interested in getting goods at a discounted rate so we feel he would applaud some sort of leak," said Matt Findley, president of inXile entertainment.

It's unclear how the leak will be handled, if implemented. Pirated or unauthorized playable game code would not actually be made available over the internet or otherwise but the full version of the game could be attained by game enthusiasts at major retail outlets as early as October 26th 2004.

For those wishing to help track down any potential thieves of The Bard's Tale, inXile is proactively offering the following advice: If anyone finds information on websites with links to unauthorized downloads, information, scans or videos, please contact us at <A HREF="shamelessmarketing@inxile-entertainment.com">shamelessmarketing@inxile-entertainment.com</A>.
Videogame leaks! It's the new nipple slip/sex tape!

Thats great. Is this a joke that they released to condemn microsoft or are they actaully planning on having a fake leak for free publicity?

"The Bard's Tale is a highly original game in the same category as a Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Half-Life 2 and Halo 2"

Yeah ... same category as in "has been leaked" ... but other than that putting them in any "category" together hardly seems fair to the other 3 :)

Talk about a shameless publicity stunt.

I find it funny that they never mentioned that this is an update of the classic RPG from like 20 years ago

Half-Life 2 will never be out.
Halo 2 sucks.
GTA: SA is the same exact GTA with new stuff added in.
Bard's Tale isn't nearly as popular as they make it sound.




Why can't something good be leaked?

Well radish, seing as the majority of game-purchasing people these days seem to disagree with you, I'm afraid you'll have to wait for a long time for something YOU would categorize as "good" to be leaked. Unless you speak french and are doing something illegal, how could you know if Halo 2 sucks anyway? :P
