THE BUZZ: Crysis 2 is the most pirated PC game of 2011, with Gears of War 3 taking the most pirated Xbox 360 crown.

According to research by TorrentFreak, Crysis 2 was downloaded 3,920,000 times since its release in March 2011, Modern Warfare 3 came in second with 3,650,000 and Battlefield 3 rounded out the top three with 3,510,000 downloads. Gears of War 3 was the most downloaded Xbox 360 title with 890,000 downloads, Modern Warfare 3 was second with 860,000 and Battlefield 3 third with 760,000 downloads. No figures were given for PlayStation 3 titles as the numbers were so low.

EGM’s TAKE: These figures show the state of PC piracy: four million is a lot of missed sales. Though these numbers don’t directly translate into lost sales it does show how deep the problem goes

Is piracy getting out of hand? Leave your thoughts below.
