    ..or they got suckered by the hype. I bet the ratio of buyers to pirate downloads for MW2 is a lot greater than for MW1. 40 for a few hours solo play just doesn't seem worth it...

    It's the only CoD not in my collection....such a shame....and Steam will no doubt never drop the price, even MW1 is 30 still, but that's worth it, in my opinion.

    Dirty little secret the industry doesn't want you to know is that piracy for consoles is rampant. They try to blame PC users but it's laughable because they comprise (apparently) a small share of their profits. So the irony is they don't want you to know about the console piracy, likely because it's their largest source of profits.

    imo, if the games will be cheaper, ppl no need to dl them from internet. Specially in some consoles.. I play only with PC but in here its quite too much that 50euros in 1 game..Prototype still ftw
