Default Why is the PC Crysis 2 RRP the same as consoles?

shady bull****.

Theres no sony/ms license to pay on the PC version, either just being greedy or forced to do it by sony / ms

Or is this normal?

Yeah but it have a lot less abuse. On maybe 10 people i know with 360, 1 pirate. On PC, i'am the only one that is actually buying games (others download) (on steam, Impulse, D2D etc)
