Call Of Duty: Black Ops Nabs 'Most Pirated Game Of 2010' Distinction

Not only is Call of Duty: Black Ops one of the fastest selling video games of all time, racking up more than a billion dollars in sales in 2010, it's also impressively enough one of the most illegally downloaded.

According to a report from BitTorrent news site TorrentFreak, the PC version of Black Ops has been pirated an impressive 4.2 million times. The newest Call of Duty bested Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (3.96 million downloads), Mafia II and Mass Effect 2 to take home the most-stolen crown.

Thieves who own an Xbox 360 did their share in Black Ops stealing, downloading that console version 930,000 times, according to TorrentFreak's numbers. Dante's Inferno wound up being the most downloaded Xbox 360 game, with Super Mario Galaxy 2 sitting atop the most pirated list on for Wii owners. Congratulations all around!

    "Congratulations all around!"

    oh look out, the white knights will come out for that one

    Bad Company 2 came second? Really? 3.96 million people wasted their bandwidth and should have bought it for the online. Biggest blockbusters usually take the cake, it's only logical. Not going to have STALKER for instance ever be #1.


    well thats surprising, you'd think a game like halo reach would be most downloaded, shows how loyal the fans are i guess...

    Most pirated and highest Grossing game ever. I guess pirating doesn't really effect your bottom line after all.
