Take-Two Interactive the parent company of subsidiaries 2K Games and Rockstar Games, posted their second quarter financial stats and it's looking good for the company. Borderlands 2 led the charge in sales for the company followed by XCOM: Enemy Unknown and, unsurprisingly, GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption. What might be surprising is that one of the biggest revenue increases for the company was actually from digital PC sales. Interesting, eh?
What's also surprising (or maybe not) is that a big boost in the revenue of Take-Two's second quarter came from a digital sales. In fact, revenue was up 108% thanks to digital sales. We could safely assume a majority of that was due to those “PC pirates” given that Max Payne 3 and Borderlands 2 aren't available for digital download on the home consoles (unless you count PlayStation Plus). But right, we aren't supposed to talk about how PC gamers contribute a lot to the industry digitally...we're only supposed to talk about those 95% piracy figures.
Yep 95% Piracy
