"Are PC games in trouble yet again? It seems like no one has written a "PC Gaming is dead" piece in a few months, and while I don't think the industry is dying (yet), there are some awfully worrying signs on the horizon. A few days ago Robert Bowling, community relations manager for Infinity Ward, posted a few thoughts on his blog under the despairing title "They Wonder Why People Don't Make PC Games Any More."
"On another PC related note, we pulled some disturbing numbers this past week about the amount of PC players currently playing Multiplayer (which was fantastic). What wasn't fantastic was the percentage of those numbers who were playing on stolen copies of the game on stolen / cracked CD keys of pirated copies (and that was only people playing online)," Bowling wrote. "The amount of people who pirate PC games is astounding. It blows me away at the amount of people willing to steal games (or anything) simply because it's not physical or it's on the safety of the internet to do."
