Videogame piracy – man that sh!t gets everywhere. With the end of a year comes an endless barrage of “top x to be y in 2011” lists. Here we have the top 5 PC, Wii and Xbox 360 titles to be shamelessly stolen during 2011.
Want to take a guess which of the three platforms had the highest numbers of pirated games? Hah! What a stupid guessing game – we all know it was the PC. Two games overlap on the PC and Xbox 360, with the PC boasting piracy figures that are literally millions of instances greater than the Xbox 360 equivalent.
This collection of plundered booty lists comes from the organised pirates over at Torrent Freak. Hit the jump to see if your favourite game of 2011 got torrented to hell and back.
