The cost of PC Gaming Piracy

1 min read

Okay could someone please explain this to me.

Kieron Gillen has been monitoring illegal downloads from a torrent site and has come out with some scary figures.

For example in a single day recently (long after it’s release date) 8792 copies of Call of Duty 4 were downloaded.

Taking an average price of R300 per game that means that Activision lost out on a possible revenue of R2,637,600

That’s quite a wack of cash….  what really confuses me though is that these sites are allowed to continue operating without being shut down. If one person can get these stats why has this place (channel) not been shut down yet?

Follow the link for all the scary figures
