So... Modern Warfare 3 got leaked on the 360...
Is it me, or are publishers completely avoiding the aknowledgement that consoles are getting a huge piracy treatment, now that they've been for years justifying bad desicions on PC with the piracy thingy? Seriously, a whole week! That's enough to complete Call of Duty about... 33.6 times!

I guess this means console games will start being hardcoded to the player's console, so that they can't take their disc over to their friend's house to play on his system. Right?

The problem is that I don't think it is quite a given that a console will have access to the internet the same way that it is for a PC. The next generation of consoles will, I'm sure, have strident anti-piracy, anti-rental, and anti-used game locks built in.
Also note that only hacked consoles can play these (MW3, Skyrim) leaked games. You can't just download a torrent, poop it onto a disk and put in your console. It's a small % out of total consoles that can play them.

More important to the publishers than the fact that these games are getting pirated on the 360 is the fact that they're still going to sell best on that platform. I'm sure if the PC ports of most multiplatform games sold that well most companies wouldn't spend so much on DRM and delayed releases.
