There is no way to calculate a non sale, the best you can do is give a rough estimate.
The reason i have never paid/ or played a assassins creed game other than the first one is cause i think they suck. And the only time i hear otherwise is from a payed off ad claiming its a 10/10 title.
But fuckit lets do math.
Lets say that each seed on a game is one person (its not but lest bost the numbers)
And that 100% or people who pirate never paid for the game (Also not true)
And fuckit lets boost the numbers again and say that every file even with less that 1000 downloads and say that thats a 10k number
(Should point out, ive never seen an assassins creed game get more then 10k, so this boost is literaly making it so every file uploaded has been torrented more than any other before it) .
Assassins Creed based off the first page of the most popular pirate site in the world hits about 500k downloads using these boosted numbers.That includes every game in the franchise with AC2 and AC3 being the most torrented.
Now fuck it lest boost our number of how many lost sales we have and double the number to a round 1 million.
Not counting Unity Assassins creed claimes to have sold over 73 million units that puts our number (that we boosted beyond all reason) at a 1.37% loss of sales

''But bk what dose this mean?''
Well im glad you asked, what this means is that even with this worst case scenario spending more than 1.4% of your budget on piracy prevention is going to put you at a loss.
Lets take into account that regardless of our 2% loss (i rounded up, cause fuckit why not boost the number more)
Black flag cost 5 times more to make then AC1 or 2 and sold LESS.
Piracy? well our best numbers put the maximum loss on piracy at 2% Black flag sold 10% less then its predecessors on a 500% budget
Assassins creed unity had 3 more studios working on it than black flag (stupid)
Assassins creed unity put large amounts of is budget into anti piracy (id this number is higher than our 2% estimates we can safely say that this is stupid)
Assassins creed unitys budget is mainly focus on marketing based off of the success of the last games. (Considering Unisofts own report states that unitys selling points is its ''amazing next gen graphics'' www.ubisoftgroup.com/comsite_common/en-US/images/11ubisoft%20fy14%20slide%20show%20finaltcm99143204.pdf )
Ubi then cuts the budget for unity and ships a half broken game that in the end MAKES MORE MONEY THAN IT SPENT
no piracy really hurt this game right, the reason it sucks is piracy, not you know, the actual reasons like most of its money was spent on marketing telling you it was good before it came out and showed you it wasnt, Rather then cutting the marketing budget and just making a good game.
Tlr Make a good game and people will buy it, make a bad game and people will buy it., piracy effecting the state of games coming out is ludicrous

You seem to not realize that "tumblrism" has been equated with feminism just about everywhere. Constantly arguing semantics isn't going to change that. My idea is to get rid of the damn title altogether. Humans for humans. Screw the rest.

Same argument can be used against gamergate. A few bad apples spoil the bunch etc etc.
#57 - lolollo (12/14/2014) [-]
Gamergate's also already given up on the whole "ethics in gaming journalism" front leaving the last remaining "gamergate"rs to be about going against the anti-gamergaters. The rest of us have said "fuck it, we tried being nice, we'll just keep playing out video games and not listen to journalists anymore."

Has gamergate gone on for several decades? You're trying to connect dots that aren't there.
