Black Ops Most Pirated Title of 2010

Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops for PC was downloaded illegally over four million times in one month, according to new data collected by the website TorrentFreak.

The data, which was gathered from several sources, including reports from all public BitTorrent trackers, shows Black Ops edging out EA’s Battlefield: Bad Company 2 on PC for the top spot. This should come as no surprise to most gamers as Black Ops already generated over $1 billion in revenue for the publisher in just over a week.

Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for PC was 2009’s most pirated title with 4,100,000 downloads.

Things look a bit different on the home console front, however. Super Mario Galaxy 2 was tops on Wii, which was downloaded illegally nearly 1.5 million times while EA’s Dante’s Inferno hit the most downloads on Xbox 360 with 1.3 million.

Below are the top five most pirated games for PC, Wii, and Xbox 360 as of Dec. 26, 2010, courtesy of TorrentFreak.com:
