Torrentfreak has listed the top ten pirated games of the year, with figures based off bittorrent downloads rather than that dodgy bloke down the market.
Top of the dubious chart, pop pickers, is Crytek’s Crysis 2 on PC, with nearly four million downloads. It’s closely followed by Modern Warfare 3 with 3.65 million and then Battlefield at three and a half.
FIFA 12 is next, and then Portal 2 teleports into fifth place with 3.24 million. These are all PC downloads, by the way.
The Wii has its own top five: Super Mario Galaxy 2 is at the top with 1.28 million, Mario Sports Mix with 1.1 million and Xenoblade, LEGO Pirates and FIFA 12 finishing up the Nintendo top five.
Gears of War 3 heads up the Xbox 360 ‘chart’ with 900,000 copies downloaded.
We’ll be looking into SOPA (which I personally think could end up being a real mess) very soon, and in particular videogame publisher support for the new act. Stay tuned, as they say.
