Crysis 2: 2011 Most Pirated Game


Filesharing blog Torrent Freak has just released data on the most illegally downloaded by PC users. And the number one on the list is Crysis 2.

According to Torrent Freak, CRYSIS 2 was downloaded illegally 3.9 million times beating Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (MW3) as the most pirated game in 2011.

Modern Warfare 3 sold more than $1 billion dollars on its first 16 days in the market. Its was downloaded illegally by 3.6 million individuals. It was closely followed by Battlefield 3 which was downloaded 3.51 million times.

Football based game FIFA 2012 had its share of pirates as it was illegally downloaded 3.39 million times. Lagging behind the latter is Portal 2 which came in fifth with 3.24 million.

Torrent Freak got the data from BitTorrent over the past year across Wii, Xbox 360 and PC. The very fortunate PS3 was not included in the survey as it only receives a few downloads.

PC games are downloaded three times more than its counterparts Wii and Xbox 360.

The site also noted that there are fewer illegal downloads last year compared to the previous year.
