Piracy has struck another major title. This time it's on the Wii. Ubisoft's Red Steel 2 has popped up on torrent sites early this morning. The FPS/sword wielding game is highly anticipated by many Wii owners with hopes of becoming a shining example of how dynamic motion sensor controls can truly be with the use of the Wii MotionPlus accessory. What makes this bit of piracy slightly stranger is that not only does this come a week before the release date(a few days is normal, a week or more usually hints at a distributor leak), but this is the PAL version instead of the NTSC.
In the end, Nintendo is still a winner due to the Wii MotionPlus being required to play. Until pirates find a way to download accessories, Nintendo will continue to make money, pirated or not.
