This time of year, you tend to see all kinds of lists and one that’s making its way around the internet right now is the “Most Pirated Games of ’09″ list.
Though Modern Warfare 2 tops the list, Sims 3 is right behind on this list of infamy with 3,200,000 downloads as of December 27th.
If you go with the original launch price and you don’t include tax [since that gets all messy and stuff] then that means that EA lost $150,968,000 in illegal downloads of the game.
While I 100% understand not having the money to get the game that you JUST CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT [!!!] the risks of getting caught and then sued pretty much scares the piss out of me.
I do find myself with a morbid curiosity as to whether the pirated version of Sims 3 plays the same as the legal version and if you can log into the Sims 3 Store.
Feel free to comment below if you have any insights.
