Though the video game industry is a good deal more water-tight than film, TV, or music - what with most of the heavy lifting being done on computers behind closed doors - rarely do we go more than a few days without a compelling leak about an upcoming video game.
Developers and publishers naturally hate it, of course, feeling that they've been robbed of the opportunity to unveil their project in the way they intended, with scoopsters such as Kotaku routinely posting exclusive blowouts for unreleased games.
But at this point, leaks just feel like standard operating procedure, and it's rare that one is so comprehensive, and obtained in such a startling way, that it actually leaves people shook.
