It wouldn't surprise me if 95% of copies were in fact pirated. Didn't the World of Goo creator release stats that ~90% or so copies of his game were pirated? I dunno why people are getting their panties in a knot over that.
Why? Because its a blatant lie. There is no statistic that can show this, in fact there is NO DATA at all on this.
The fact of the matter is that console titles outsell their PC port counterparts at a ratio of 6 : 1. Sometimes even as far as 10 : 1.
Publishers take this number and then state as a MATTER OF FACT that the reason for this is piracy. Its complete and utter bullshit.
I have a nifty blue line!
