It was only a matter of time before the first XBOX 360 game was ripped, hacked, smacked and packed by a pirate group and the first one in question is - Condemed, Criminal Origins.
Oh the irony!
The group PI released the 7 gigabyte hacked dump this evening with the words:
You can't run these dumps yet, but you will be able to sooner or later In the mean time you can use our open source extractor tool to check the contents on your pc. Why do we release full raw dumps, one sentence "Remember Gamecube?" until we know for sure what will be needed to run these things we will be releasing the full raw dumps to you, also a full raw dump is more likely to assist any hackers out there.
So the first task is done. We hope this encourages all hackers, coders and crackers out there to take up the challenge. Enjoy!

I knew this was coming soon
Too many people have access to the technology today. Nothing is secure. Corporations are fooling themselves to think otherwise.
And as a result of your ripping the game, I now get to pay $60 for my copy. Thanks guys.
I have a feeling you were going to be paying $60 for your copy anyway. ;)
Oh come on, like who is going to play a pirated version of Madden when you can legally buy a beta version that was rushed to the market for only 60 dollars? Blah, these pirates will get nowhere!
True,but if they hadn't been ripping the older game, the price be a bit more reasonable, like say, $55.
Ripping Gamecube games is a b**** and a half. Guess what? They're still $59.99 :)
Why rip yourself when there are hundreds in the gamecube newsgroup and on emule? Got over 100 that way, and they look mighty fine on a 27 inch LCD. I can still recall Nintendo's remarks: "The Gamecube is pirate-proof!".
It's not like you can download a rip, burn it, pop it into your GC and go - there are a few hoops you have to jump through, as you know, which puts it beyond the reach of Joe Sixpack. Nobody, to my knowledge, has successfully cloned a GC disk. And that's more than enough for Nintendo :)
