Software piracy in 2016 is so ubiquitous that we expect games to leak ahead of release. Back in the 20th century, though, it was a lot harder for pirates to get hold of video games before they hit retail shelves. As evidenced by this crazy old story about how the classic TIE Fighter got out a week before its release in 1994.
Once upon a time the internet was beating down EA's door for a Mirror's Edge sequel.
Now that we're on the verge of getting one, it feels like no-one really cares. This is a shame because it looks kinda awesome.
