Pirates also love games (Arrr)

Popularity can be a pain. Avatar was big in theaters and with 16,580,000 downloads on BitTorrent alone, it was big with pirates too. Games haven’t come quite as far yet, but Call Of Duty Black Ops, which was only released in November 2010, was illegally downloaded 5,200,000 times for PC and Xbox 360. Last year Modern Warfare 2 was good for 5,070,000 downloads.

And I do believe these numbers would be a lot higher if it wasn’t quite a bit harder to get a pirated game running than it is to play a downloaded movie.
