Two Of The Oldest Video Game Torrents In The World Are Ubisoft Classics

Illustration for article titled Two Of The Oldest Video Game Torrents In The World Are Ubisoft Classics

The Pirate Bay is about to turn 13, and in honour of the site becoming a teenager, folks like Torrentfreak are checking out the oldest content that has been continuously available since its launch back in 2003.

While the oldest torrent in the world is a bizarre copy of The Matrix, among the ten oldest on The Pirate Bay are two Ubisoft games: an Xbox torrent called Prince of Persia, which was made available on March 29, 2004 (which would likely make it Sands of Time), and Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, which was first indexed on March 30, 2004.

Note that these aren’t the oldest games on the site, they’re the oldest continuously available torrents, meaning that at least one person has been sharing them at all times for well over a decade.

I doubt there’ll be popped corks over at Ubisoft over the “achievement”, but anyone who worked on either of those games could at least take some small satisfaction from the fact people are so into their old games that they’re still seeding them in 2017.

If you want to see the full list, it’s over at TF.

Good, because that game is impossible to buy now.
