Nowhere did he say every one of those games were lost sales, just that they were pirated copies. The numbers aren't dodgy at all.

A company spokesperson told PC Gamer that the strategy had resulted in "a clear reduction in piracy of our titles

Was the number 100% before they started using DRM? Does not compute.

To clear up i was sugesting that a pirated copy does not equal a lost sale. Means that when its free anyone may get it simply for downloading it. If they had to pay 60 bucks, they probably wouldnt buy it so easily.
Dunno how they come up with these numbers though. Theres no way for them to know exactly.
