Spore the most pirated game ever.
Posted by ballightning on September 16, 2008
Spore is set to become the most pirated game ever, taking the title from EA’s best seller The Sims. We reported last week that it had already been downloaded over 170,000 times in just under 2 weeks, that number has now climbed to over 500,000 and looks set to break the 1,000,000 record which no game has ever reached. Crysis, the most anticipated game for 2007, only managed to reach 420,000 in comparison. We also reported that Spore hit the #1 downloaded item on The Pirate Bay but since then it has stayed in the #1 spot, which for any pirated item is rare, but for a computer game is unheard of.
DRM has never stopped the game from being put up onto pirating sites, all it does is limit legitimate customers who have bought the game then can only install it three times.
So what does this mean for Spore? EA has lost a huge number of customers just from the DRM issue, but one thing going for Spore is that it is incredible popular, whether from normal buyers or people downloading it illegally.
