The Scene group's Complex and Duplex have offered the Xbox 360 version and PS3 version

Gamers have been waiting a long time for "Duke Nukem Forever," and that wait will be over in a little less than a week. But for some, the wait ended yesterday when the game leaked onto the internet. 

With much anticipation for the new "Duke Nukem," game players were pushing to get a glimpse of 2K Games' latest creation in the series. Over the last two weeks alone, several fake "Duke Nukem Forever" files have popped up all over the web

But the real deal appeared on torrent sites like BitTorrent yesterday, with the Xbox 360 version made available by the Scene group "Complex," and the PS3 version compliments of the Scene Group "Duplex."

This leak could make or break the new game, as gamers who test it will likely spread the word as to whether it's a worthy buy or not. 

"Duke Nukem Forever" will officially release on June 14 for Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows.

"Duke Nukem" is a video game series that was initially released in 1991 for MS-DOS, and focuses on protagonist Duke Nukem. "Duke Nukem ll" was released in 1993, and "Duke Nukem 3D" launched in 1996. In addition, many spin-offs like "Duke Nukem: Critical Mass" were created.

The people who will pirate it would not have spent the money on it anyways. Plus, Apogee basically screwed it's investors for as long as they could before someone finally said "enough". Now gearbox has stepped in to release a game that was never meant to be released. Of course it's going to be awful.....

Because you think it is awful doesn't give you the right to pirate it instead of paying for it. If you want to play it, and end up playing through the whole game--the developers deserve their share of money for your consumation of their intellectual property. It isn't as if they are charging you 65.00 to play this game. On the PC, at least right now, it is selling for 50.00 or less.

But yes, you're right, those who pirate it might not have spent the money on it anyways so it would never have equtaed to lost sales.

Oh--and don't get me wrong, I'm a little pissed off about what they have done to Duke in DNF. I played the demo that came out last week. I can't stand:

1. How they screwed us on the FOV (it was around 60-70 in the demo, but can be fixed via console commands).

2. Put mouse acceleration into the game and didn't give us an easy way to fix (should be able to be address in config files in the full game).

The next two though... they are inexcusable...

3. Halo-style health regen through Ego meter (What? Duke uses healthpacks and atomic health, not this wimpy stuff).

4. Two weapon limit (totally wtf here. Duke isn't a wimp, he carries lots of guns all at one time).

Still though, gripes aside, I'm still going to pay for it and play through it. It will at least give me some closure to waiting all these years even if it is gimped.

Originally, you were supposed to regenerate your health by being a bad-ass. I.E. kicking ass and taking names. I vividly remember Randy Pitchford talking about it in a video interview. However, it looks like they caved on even that! It's sad, but Duke will never have the sequel he deserved...

I totally agree with you. I have downloaded many many games before just to try them out and see if I like them or not. If I don't, I uninstall and delete the file forever. However, I will purchase the game if it fits two of my criteria:

1. I have played the game to the very end.

2. I have played it and enjoyed it for at least 20 hours (mainly rpg genre for this case).

I am a supporter of great companies/games, and if their product intrigues me enough to fit any of those 2 criteria, they will get my business.

I call BS.

Some would have, some wouldn't have.
