The Entertainment Software Association has published a report which states that 54 percent of the world's video game piracy comes from just five countries: Brazil, China, France, Italy and Spain.

Spain was singled out in the report, as the ESA recommended that they should be put on the "Priority Watch List", which both China and Canada are already listed in. Countries that feature on the list, according to the ESA, are countries which have "fostered a culture permissive piracy".

However, while Brazil and Italy were mentioned, the ESA recognised that measures were being taken to try and reduce the amounts of piracy.
