Spore #1 Pirated game of 2008

Posted by ballightning on December 6, 2008

Spore as predicted has been crowned the most pirated game of 2008. With 500,000 downloads in september alone, and over 1 million througout the rest of the year, there has been unprecedented downloads, resulting in 1.7 million downloads since september, a record breaking figure. This was mainly due to Spore’s DRM which created a massive custormer backlash which resulted in EA making the DRM much looser then before, and three class action cases.

The Sims 2 came in second place with 1.2 million downloads, with assasons creed rounding out the top 3, with just over 1 million downloads.
