Spore becomes the most pirated game ever - but why?


"You probably read this earlier in the week but if not then the news that Spore has become the most pirated game ever will be as new to you as it is interesting to me. The game has been downloaded an estimated 1.7 million times, way ahead of its nearest rival Sims 2 (1.15million). Other titles in the Top 10 include Assassin's Creed (just over 1 million), Fallout 3 (645,000) and Far Cry 2 (585,000). Even if these figures are out it does give a fairly clear indication - if needed - that piracy is a huge issue for publishers who make PC games. So why do people pirate games?

So what does this all mean. Less games published on PC? Even more restrictive DRM? Or do publishers have to accept that piracy will always be there?"

Somehow I don't think this would have been anywhere near as bad had EA not been complete tards.

I'm sure it's just to piss off EA.
