And The Top Ten Pirated Games Of 2011 Are…


Piracy is a troublesome bug. Especially on PC. Head below the break to see the games that made the top ten lists on PC, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii. PS3 wasn’t considered because piracy on the console is almost a non-factor.

Here’s the full quencher:

PC Game Downloads
1. Crysis 2 (3,920,000)
2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (3,650,000)
3. Battlefield 3 (3,510,000)
4. FIFA 12 (3,390,000)
5. Portal 2 (3,240,000)

Wii Game Downloads
1. Super Mario Galaxy 2 (1,280,000)
2. Mario Sports Mix (1,090,000)
3. Xenoblade Chronicles (950,000)
4. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean (870,000)
5. FIFA 12 (860,000)

Xbox 360 Game
1. Gears of War 3 (890,000)
2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (830,000)
3. Battlefield 3 (760,000)
4. Forza Motorsport 4 (720,000)
5. Kinect Sports: Season Two (690,000)

As you can see, Crysis 2 lead the bunch with almost 4 million downloads on PC, with Gears of War 3 leading the pack on Xbox 360, while Mario Galaxy 2, a game that didn’t even release this year, lead the crowd on Wii.

Thanks, GI, Torrent Freak.

    how much you wanna bet half of those were from the leaked beta?
    i dont see PC games leaking on the net 4 months before release!
    well, besides the very rare beta builds, but they were journo faults the deus ex one was a italian journalist uploading their preview code.
    every console game this year though has been up online months in advance!
    gears 3 leaked online like 6 weeks before launch!
    KZ3 leaked over a month before release!
    portal 2 on ps3 and 360 leaked weeks before release, PC version did not leak till after release.
    piracy is far worse on consoles then it is on PC!
