We just knew this was coming, and probably did Bethesda. It looks like a collection of Skyrim live streams are now circulating on the internet, as naughty individuals perhaps put their review copies up online for all to see. Either that, or some users are getting copies extremely early ahead of the intended 11.11.11 launch date.
We have checked out the live stream ourselves, just for a few seconds to check it out and we can confirm that it is indeed Skyrim being played live. We can’t tell what version of the game that is, but that’s pretty irrelevant as the main issue here is that live streams are already about.
This week we have been asking for your thoughts on other temptations such as the 25 minute gameplay leak, or picking up the official strategy guide to find everything in the game 100%. However, a live stream takes everything to a whole new level of course and obviously spoils the fun.
We don’t recommend watching the live stream, but if you just want to check it out due to sheer curiosity, then you can find it here – we’re obviously not going to embed it here as that would be illegal and we have far too much respect for Bethesda to do something like that.
We’re guessing that many of you will choose not to watch the live stream since it ruins the fun of seeing everything for the first time, but for those that feel that the temptation is just too much to bear, let us know what you thought of it. If you want our opinion, we would say avoid at all costs since the quality is medium at best, and it definitely isn’t a clear cut HD stream showing Skyrim in its true beauty.
