Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been crowned the top illegally downloaded game for the PC of 2009. It brought in, 4,100,000 downloads costing the company $245 million dollars. The torrent can easily be found with a simple Google search, making the number of downloads to easily increase.    
According to TorrentFreak, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been downloaded illegally nearly 4,100,000 times for PC in 2009, topping the list after only releasing just two months ago. Provided these numbers are indeed accurate, Activision has potentially lost more than $245 million in sales on the PC version alone. The Sims 3, Prototype, Need for Speed Shift, and Street Fighter IV help round off the top five for the year, all of which appeared on the PC platform. New Super Mario Bros. Wii was the highest downloaded Wii title with 1,150,000 downloads. The report notes the total download figures for this year double that of last year's numbers, and that PC remains to be the target for torrent downloads, with more than three times that of the Wii and Xbox 360.

    Bought the game and i love it. As for public I don't mind IWnet, but I really miss being able to play clan matches.

    Lol. "Jaw-Dropping" says the critics. When they're right, they're right. Jaw-dropping when it comes to being pirated. :)) BTW, I got Prototype and Sims 3 by scamming a vendor. XD

    Steam will only stop people playing a game illegally if the game uses VAC, is that correct? I know the only way to play Counter-Strike: Source illegally is if you get a non-steam version and play on a server that has been modified to take non-steam accounts. Correct me if I'm wrong though, that's how I had my server setup for the Hide N Seek mod before.

    They did this on purpose. Now that can say, "Look at this community! Look at these monsters! Don't release games for the PC, they'll kill your company! (They can't kill us though. lololololol Noobs)

    Let's look at why. 60 dollar pricing Fucked up PC community (no responses to tech support, no responses on forums) No dedicated Direct port IWnet, no mods Hopefully, they aren't shocked about being the most pirated game
    Wait, what do I put here again
