Pirates Are All Over Starcraft II

There are lots of people out there who refuse to pay for video games. If you're wondering how many, let's take a look at illegal Starcraft II downloads, and you'll see they number in the millions.

Last week, Torrent Freak posted a story revealing that the most popular illegal copy of Starcraft II had been downloaded via bittorrent over two million times since the game's release earlier this year.

That's not every illegal copy of the game obtained across the world. That's just the most popular of several copies of the game (you can see how many are out there below) downloaded over the internet, and doesn't include the figures from other, less popular torrent files or marketplace sales in regions like China, South East Asia and Eastern Europe.

For the record, the game sold 3.3 million legitimate copies in its first month on sale.
