December 31, 2009, By Sanjeev Ramachandran


Any guesses on which was the most pirated game of 2009? If the answer is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, you got it right. The game, which sold more than 6 million copies in November alone, had created a record of sorts. Now, it has been revealed that the immensely popular game of 2009 has also become the most pirated game of the passing year.

It is beyond imagination on how many copies of the game must have been pirated. It has been reported that PC versions of the game were downloaded 4.1 million times. These download numbers make it way beyond the figures of  2008.

It has to be kept in mind that the huge number of downloads came in just two months making the piracy factor alarming.

While the Xbox 360 version was also downloaded, the numbers stopped at just 970,000. Other downloads were Need for Speed Shift, The Sims 3 and Street Fighter IV.

With Xbox 360 fans not having access to Xbox Live, downloading pirated games may not be an option that many Xbox 360 fans will be doing anymore. But then, the huge number of pirated downloads still doesn’t go off the mind.
