MW2 (1)

The website TorrentFreak has calculated that this years most torrented game this year, in just a month and a half, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been pirated in the PC over 4.1 million times and about one million times on the Xbox 360, a little bit over 5 million copies in total in less than two months made this most pirated game of the year! This means that Activision lost about $245 million in sales just for the PC, arghhh, those pirates!

The Sims 3 came in second place as most pirated games in 2009 with 3,200,000 copies. Prototype in third with 2,350,000 torrented copies on PC. Need for Speed SHIFT in fourth with 2,100,000 copies torrented on PC, Street fighter IV came out in fifth with 1,850, 000 torrented copies. The Wii even had quite a few games torrented but New Super Mario Brothers Wii stood out with 1,150,000 pirated copies.

Don’t torrent kids!

    360 fanboy: “Yeah, bluray is a pretty pointless for a console to have. I mean what good could it do?”
    PS3 fanboy: “So, how many copies were pirated on the PS3? Wasn’t it zero? Yep, I’m pretty sure it was zero.”

    The companies didn’t lose all of that money because most people that torrent the game probably wouldn’t have bought it in the first place. My xbox got banned for playing burned games and all of the games I got I never would of bought. All of the games I really want I buy for the ps3, even before my 360 got banned
