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.Read More At TorrentFreak.com
Want access to cool stuff? As a member you can:
Yeah. i heard it only supports the console amount of players and that there is little to no room for modding of maps etc.
Good, it deserves to be pirated since mw2 sucks hard
It's run on STEAMing Pile, why wouldn't anyone pirate it? I have half a mind to take my legit copy back and pirate it. It's legal here, so sue me.
Lex is not surprised.
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.
As long as their are ways not to pay for things, people would use those ways. I mean i torrented it cause i didnt wanna pay and i dont wanna play multiplayer anyways.
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.
This alone is why the future of PC gaming is dying and its all going to consoles as a result.
