Who writes a story written around a fictitious number that was pulled out of their butts and thinks for two seconds that the VP of the company wouldn't come forward and correct them? Just another article that makes me chuckle.

I would also love to know who on this site saw the original story that claimed the 40 million number and thought that it was actually real.

The game would have to be good for 40 million pirated copies to be on the loose. But it sucks. So I doubt it. And if 40 million did pirate it then we have 40 million people who thanked their lucky stars they did not pay for that recycled piece of crap.

There arent even 40Million GAMING PCs out there WORLDWIDE.

So you gotta be an idiot if you thought it was a real story.

There aren't 40 million gaming PC's out there ?...

Are you kidding...
Of course there are match more then 40 Million gaming PC's out there.

You must be confusing it with some console...

The total amount of PCs around the world are in the several hundreds of millions.

And ONLY a very small percentage are actually used as GAMING devices.

Offices and business used the most amount of computers. They dont run counterstrike on those comps, little boy.

That computer of yours in your home runs counterstrike (or SIMS whatever suits you). Thats only a very small fraction of the total amount of PCs used worldwide.

@MrBii: Is that so... then i guess the millions of graphics cards Nvidia and Ati sell every year don't count.

So stupid and ignorant boy, why don't you just go inform your self how many 8800GT (don't count the other cards...just this one) cards have nvidia sold since it's launch.

Go play a 600p game in your console, since 95% of console games are that resolution.

It is a real story.. he meant to say 40 million attempts from non-unique ips (which is definitely a reasonable number if everytime someone with a cracked copy loads up UT3 it tires to get online automatically) but ended up misspeaking and saying something ridiculously dumb
