But it is, in fact, a true statement. If one watches what is going at those (pirate/hacking) sites, you will know that it is a sport in the scene to upload a pirated version as soon as possible. It's a game to be the first. Though it isn't common, sometimes copies are made available even before a game has gone gold.

Oops sorry Collector, missed your post.
