RTZ Posted December 9, 2008 Share Posted December 9, 2008 *Curtesy of Download.com *December 6, 2008 10:26 AM PST 'Spore' leads 2008's most pirated PC games Posted by Dave Rosenberg EA's Spore topped the list of most pirated video games for 2008, according to TorrentFreak. Spore suffered from a serious PR problem when Electronic Arts introduced an archaic DRM technology that infuriated thousands of users and led to a piracy tsunami. EA, however, said the downloads didn't hurt Spore sales. Most people agree that EA's heavy-handed DRM helped to push Spore to the top of the list. The initial outrage (500k downloads in the first 10 days) was obviously curtailed over the next several months, but these download numbers are still quite astounding. 1. Spore (1,700,000) 2. The Sims 2 (1,150,000) 3. Assassins Creed (1,070,000) 4. Crysis (940,000) 5. Command & Conquer 3 (860,000) 6. Call of Duty 4 (830,000) 7. GTA San Andreas (740,000) 8. Fallout 3 (645,000) 9. Far Cry 2 (585,000) 10. Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 (470,000) Note: the number in parenthesis is the estimated number of downloads. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
