2D top-down action game Hotline Miami has been overwhelmed by piracy, publisher Devolver Digital has told Eurogamer. The company also revealed sales statistics to the site, confirming the game has sold 130,000 copies since launch in late October.
This is why big budget Crysis esque hardware pushing PC exclusives are a dying breed, you can bring up that consoles get pirated as well. When in reality the piracy levels on consoles is magnitudes smaller than that of PC, not mention you need to actually mod the hardware inside the console (most don't know how to do this) and run the risk of getting your console bricked from MS or Sony.
This game was also $10, so don't bring up the whole price argument as a reason to justify piracy.
No wonder why Rockstar doesn't want to release GTA V on the PC.
Thank you, pirates!
