95% piracy rate, oh boy. Well trolled.
You guys are all acting like he's wildly exaggerating, but if the percentage actually happened to be at around that, I don't think I'd really be all that surprised.
Whether you like it or not, piracy on the PC platform is obviously a huge concern. These guys don't want to see 2000 people pirating their game for every 100 sales, and who would?
Titles can still do reasonably well, of course, but as said before, that probably just means an even greater number of pirates are also enjoying it.
I picked up the PC version of Modern Warfare 3. According to the info at vgchartz.com, PC sales of the game are at about 3%. I bet more than 95% have pirated this one.
