Call of Duty: Black Ops the Most Pirated Game of the Year 5

Torrentfreak reports that after calculating download frequency for pirated copies of popular video games, Call of Duty: Black Ops has won the dubious honor of being the most pirated game of 2010. The PC version of the game was torrented roughly 4,270,000 times, and the Xbox 360 version was downloaded an additional 930,000 times. (The most pirated Wii game was Super Mario Galaxy 2, and Dante's Inferno somehow managed to accrue the most downloads of Xbox 360 games.) Fortunately for Activision, the game has still made over $1 billion in sales, and its 20,000,000+ players have racked up over 600,000,000 man-hours of play time since the game's launch in early November.

Comment TuxPaint + a slow mouse (Score 1) 417

I let my kids play with TuxPaint, a free paint app that is geared for kids. It doesn't require a keyboard so I put that out of reach. I also have a gamming optical mouse that let's you change the speed of the mouse with a small button on the mouse. I turn the mouse speed way down before I hand it over to them. Might need to wait until he/she's a little older.
