GamePolitics has the word that the leaked version of Manhunt 2 was put onto the internet by a Sony employee. "GamePolitics has now learned that the leak came directly from PlayStation Europe. Here's a statement from Manhunt 2 publisher Take-Two Interactive: 'Take-Two Interactive has confirmed that a former employee of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) has acknowledged his responsibility for the unauthorized online distribution of an unrated play-test version of Manhunt 2 submitted for the European PAL PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system.'"

    Think this was accidentally on purpose?
    • Think this was accidentally on purpose?

      and that in one line tells you why no one is cutting Rockstar any slack.

      the voluntary ratings system in the states wouldn't last six months if a developer was caught leaking AO content to the net.

      you could kiss goodbye any tolerance the console manufacturers might have had for home-brewed content that wasn't licensed and distributed through portals like XBox Live!

    • Did they find this by checking some kind of watermarking or by tracing the initial seed of a file transfer?

      Is there any decent anonymizing service designed for this problem? Might be something the pirate bay should look into.

      No because it was Sony Europe, not Take Two or Rock Star.
    • I did begin to wonder how Slashdot had managed to go a week or so without advertising... erm, I mean... featuring this crap game again.
  • I imagine most who wanted Manhunt were disinterested with the reports of the gore being blurred. I think anyone who still intended to buy the game is now much more likely to download it illegally.

  • I wonder how someone that screws up like that can get a job again. Do you just give up and work a factory job? You probably can't get a retail job with a criminal record, who is going to let you work a cash register if they think you will steal things. (leaking copyrighted materials == stealing to the eyes of most businesses)
