2009’s Most Pirated


TorrentFreak has revealed the most pirated games of 2009, so that means it’s time to look at the charts and see what games have been downloaded the most last year.

Obviously, PC games are the most pirated, it’s said that PC games have on average, more than three times the number of downloads than on consoles. Anyway, time for the numbers. PC up first.

1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – 4,100,000 Downloads

2. The Sims 3 – 3,200,000 Downloads

3. Prototype – 2,350,000 Downloads

4. Need For Speed: Shift – 2,100,000 Downloads

5. Street Fighter IV – 1,850,000 Downloads

As you can see, Modern Warfare 2 was at the top this year, not really surprising, it was massively hyped for months. Coming in second is The Sims 3, followed by Prototype, then Need for Speed: Shift and finally, Street Fighter IV.

Next up is the Xbox 360.

1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – 970,000 Downloads

2. Street Fighter IV – 840,000 Downloads

3. Prototype – 810,000 Downloads

4. Dirt 2 – 790,000 Downloads

5. UFC 2009 Undisputed – 720,000 Downloads

Again, Modern Warfare 2 comes in first with Street Fighter IV not far behind it. Again, Prototype comes in third, Dirt 2 makes fourth and in fifth is UFC 2009 Undisputed.

Not really many surprises there, Dirt 2 appears to be more popular among console pirates while Need for Speed: Shift is more popular than Dirt 2 on PC but that’s about it. Now onto the Wii.

1. New Super Mario Bros. Wii – 1,150,000 Downloads

2. Punch-Out!! – 950,000 Downloads

3. Wii Sports Resort – 920,000 Downloads

4. The House of the Dead: Overkill – 860,000 Downloads

5. Mario Power Tennis – 830,000 Downloads

In first we have New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Second goes to Punch-Out!! Wii Sports Resort takes third with The House of the Dead: Overkill in fourth and fifth belongs to Mario Power Tennis.

So, I know it’s a little early but what are your predictions for 2010’s most pirated game?

  1. 2010’s most pirated game? I am going for Starcraft 2. Especially because it is one of the biggest PC games to come out this year and because there are a lot of cheap bastards out there who won’t buy a good game to save their lives.
