Look at the software sales. When you consider that the PS3 is the only console that can't play burned games, they clearly indicate that piracy hurts sales in a big way. If it didn't, the 360 and Wii would be selling the most software.

Well done! I'm serious.

 



These numbers are just the bottom... add all the other p2p, rapidshare etc. to it and you have a lost profit that could give food to complete africa ^^ But I agree that many many people who pirated the game, wouldn't have bought it, but some people using the excuse to test it... that's poor... most games have demos availlable. It may be right that you download a game which you are a little interessted in but don't want to pay for it but please don't tell me you do it to "test" it...

As for consoles... rapidshare site have a huge count for all console Games, especially Wii Games... And to be honest... Some part of me would love to put a chip in my wii... just for no more heroes us... I mean most often I can import Games from uk or austria. I live in germany so we get 90% censored games... And No more heroes isn't even importable -.- Damn give me a reliable freeloader ^^

But If I really wanted to download one of the games I could leave my PC 2 weeks nonstop on line because my connection is way to slow for this big games ^^

Last point... I don't think that piracy should be promoted through such ranking lists... It's kind of an ad for what is good to download for people who want to play something new... There will always be piracy and it will always hurt the sales in a very small way... though this small way may sometimes mean if the developer can buy a mansion and a mercedes... or just the mercedes and wait for the masnion 3 more months :)

^^' Wowz....Will we get a site soon who track all of this?

 

The people that posted these numbers kind of track this. Not gonna link it since the site itself has links to torrents and I don't know how that sits with mods here.
