And the Most Pirated Game of 2010 is…
Yup, you guessed it; just as Modern Warfare 2 took that title last year, Call of Duty: Black Ops is now taking over as the most pirated game of 2010 on the PC, according to TorrentFreak. Compared to the next most pirated game, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, it’s not even close, as Black Ops has over 4.2 million downloads, nearly 400K more than Bad Company 2.
Other notable stats include Super Mario Galaxy 2 being the most pirated Wii game, which isn’t too surprising, and Dante’s Inferno being the most pirated 360 game, which actually is quite surprising.
It’s a shame that piracy of videogames is still quite rampant, especially on the PC. I for one hate the kinds of restrictive DRM that’s coming out for PC games, but if that many people really are stealing developers’ hard work, I’ll live with it.
