    The internet site --that i shouldn't have mentioned-- announced a list of the most pirated games of the year 2009. There you can see the Top 5 winners on wii, xbox 360 and pc. it's just questionable whether it is a honor for the winners to get into this positions [​IMG]
    here the list; enjoy:

    No wonder HotD: Overkill sold so badly.

    We already knew about NSMB Wii and Modern Warfare 2, though.

    Prototype? I didn't think it was that popular.

    I do wonder how they can even determine these figures, or where they are pulling them from. There's no way they can tell what each individual user has been downloading worldwide.

    Its obviously an estimate.. they probably took a small sample and escalated it with some formula.
    PC has too many pirates :S

    I personally think that MW2 on PC deserved to be pirated. It was a total insult to us.

    The companies didn't necessarily lose money, I never buy any games, and I wouldn't even if pirating wasn't an option. So technically, if I didn't intend to buy but pirate, no loss. I gain slightly but I don't really play that many games anyway. Usually pirated games have issues as well, like playing online, I would like to play MW2 online for PC, but it seems to complicated to crack.

    No, you are wrong :

    You need games compatibles with the motion+ to use motion+ you bought (Wii sport Resort is NOT the only compatible game)
    I pirated it, because I already owned a motion+, not the contrary.


    your point of view : why pirate Red Steel 2 ? you will need a Wii motion+, that's why you need to buy the game bundle with the motion+ ! you can't pirate it ! you need more Motion+ hardware than wiimote you own ! .. oh, wait [​IMG]

    It was a bit confusing, but he's right. The Wii MotionPlus is more interesting than Wii Sports Resort is. I can see why people would want to get it to play Wii Sports Resort and Red Steel 2. There's no reason to pay at least twice as much for a game you don't want.

    Sorry if I was confusing [​IMG]

    I just wanted to say that it's common sense to pirate Wii sport resort, because you can buy Motion+ only.
    That's not like Wii fit where you needed to buy game+board, as board wasn't available alone. Pirating Wiifit would have been more strange.

    And seeing we can buy Motion+ alone, it can be used to play many other games, not only Resort.
    People could have bought Motion+ alone to play Tennis games, and then decided to pirate Resort. No need to buy again a Wii sport Resort bundled with Motion+ to get the game only.
