Crytek: PC Sales to Piracy Ratio 1:15 or 1:20

There's a Cevat Yerli Q&A on IGN talking with the Crytek CEO about a variety of topics. One interesting bit, as pointed out by Gamasutra (thanks Mike Martinez), is his elaboration on his previous assertions about the impact of PC piracy on sales of Crysis, as his guestimates at piracy rations are pretty darned steep:

The other critique outside Crytek was the fact that the PC industry is really, at the moment, I would say the most intensely pirated market ever. It's crazy how the ratio between sales to piracy is probably 1 to 15 to 1 to 20 right now. For one sale there are 15 to 20 pirates and pirate versions, and that's a big shame for the PC industry. I hope with Warhead I hope we improve the situation, but at the same time it may have an impact on [our] PC exclusivity in the future.

There are plenty of people who are happily playing the game, just go back to the Crysis launch thread here and you'll find them.
-------------------------

I'm glad you know where all of those hordes reside, because you will not find them online. I loved Crysis, but it slowly devolved into a rail shooter which would be best suited for consoles. So, perhaps Cevat is already progressing to dumbed-down gameplay for his next game property.
