MW:2 Most Pirated Game of 2009

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been crowned the top illegally downloaded game for the PC of 2009. It brought in, 4,100,000 downloads costing the company $245 million dollars. The torrent can easily be found with a simple Google search, making the number of downloads to easily increase.

   
According to TorrentFreak, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been downloaded illegally nearly 4,100,000 times for PC in 2009, topping the list after only releasing just two months ago. Provided these numbers are indeed accurate, Activision has potentially lost more than $245 million in sales on the PC version alone. The Sims 3, Prototype, Need for Speed Shift, and Street Fighter IV help round off the top five for the year, all of which appeared on the PC platform. New Super Mario Bros. Wii was the highest downloaded Wii title with 1,150,000 downloads. The report notes the total download figures for this year double that of last year's numbers, and that PC remains to be the target for torrent downloads, with more than three times that of the Wii and Xbox 360.

    I kinda want CoD:MW2, but there is no way I will support a PC game for 60 bucks. It's one thing PC has over console. Besides, the internet aspect of the game seem so much like console setups, making want to believe (not leading) that it was designed for console then ported over at console price.

    I'll wait for it to drop to $50 before I buy it.

    God is great, so great. Just a

    Dude what do you expect everything leaks because someone gets the premature ejaculation spraying the seed of the video game everywhere for everyone. And that is why the internet is for porn(and games <<).

    AS far as I'm concerned, the fuckers had i coming. That's what you get for epically half-assing a game, and fucking up a franchise that much. Fuck you Activision and fuck you Infinity Ward.
