A quick search on Google also shows that WiiWare version is getting pirated.

Only a 48MB download too...

Trust me when I say - The Wii boxed version will be pirated heavily too...

Damn Nintendo for leaving a gaping security hole in Twilight Princess!!!

The happy friar has been at the happy juice.

Have no other way of playing Doom or Quake?

Oh, now we can pirate WiiWare...?  Interesting.  I'll look into it.

(Not that I'd do that, of course.  I'm pure.)

Btw: Shacknews:


2D Boy's World of Goo (PC, Wii) is being pirated at the rate of "about 90%," according to co-creator Ron Carmel.

The statement came from Carmel in the form of a user comment on a RockPaperShotgun story about the game's pending European release. 2D Boy cohort Kyle Gabler explained in another comment that the figure was established by looking at the number of unique Internet addresses connecting to the game's leaderboard server.

In the face of staggering piracy, Carmel is keeping his chin up. "We're getting good sales through WiiWare, Steam, and our website. Not going bankrupt just yet!" wrote the upstart developer to Joystiq.

Carmel wrote that a few players had illegally downloaded the game and then decided to make a purchase, but added that those buyers formed a "very small percentage."

2D Boy won the 2008 Independent Games Festival for World of Goo. The physics-based puzzler has quickly risen to popularity among indie game fans on Nintendo's WiiWare service as well as Valve's Steam.

and an attitude like that is why I'd buy a game from Ron and Kyle anytime.. same as Will Wright, back in the day (before he sold his soul to EA)
