    Normally I see games online maybe a day or two before release date. The earliest I've seen is a week or so before it hits shelves. How do the pirates normally get their games early, and what is the earliest a game has been dumped?

    Curious because Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep is coming out in little over six weeks.

    It all depends on circumstances. If a dump team can get their hands on a retail copy before it's released, they'll dump it. If no one can find it within a month, it won't be released for a month.
