    Need to add the other digital providers and then add the retail sales, not just US but for the whole world and PC gaming looks perfectly healthy.

    Good stuff for Valve, they must have a healthy relationship with Activision.

    Doesn't help the piracy argument much, just makes it look like the PC needs more MP FPS's like Call Of Duty, the fact MW2 came out in 2009, and still came second says it all:bang:

    That's an estimate no an actual number, I suspect that the number is higher than that.

    I can't believe portal was still that high on the list. They made that much money on it but still can't put out a sequel?

    All this money and yet they still insist on dumping updates through it at peak times such as around 9pm EST!!! I swear...how stupid is that?

    I'd still rather buy the physical copy over digital any day, considering that if I'm done playing a game I can sell it and get a little for the next one.

    Physical copy or not, Steamworks API games (like CoDMW2/BO) cannot be resold.

    Even though this is the case, I still see people ignorantly selling their MW2/BO discs on ebay "excellent used condition", "I'm done playing, great game", etc.

    Don't know who to feel bad for: the ignorant buyer who thinks it will work, or the seller not knowing he cannot re-sell the game.

    Why blame your self for failure if you can just blame piracy.
    never their fault always others fault.
