I lurked through Best Buy's site: The PC version is $39.99 US, whereas the xbox version is $49.99....xbox 360 is $59.99!

Why the different rates? :confused:

This might not be the answer but I think xbox and ps2 versions are more because they are DVD, and PC versions are on CD. Therefore PC versions do not hold as much memory and tend to need patches and expansions, while usually those can be put on the DVD versions.

I am not a geek though so I may be totally off base :p

Game publishers have to pay a license fee to have their games on a XBox or Playstation (or any other console).

TR:L for pc is on DVD only so its not CD. since they dont have to pay a license becouse a PC can be of any brand thats why its $10 less. although ive seen alot of pc games that are 49.99

i know a Good reason...xbox 360 = 720p-1080i, plus Acheivements..now for those who dont give a rats arz about acheivements....well atleast i got "something" for my hard earned 100% on TRL. on PC etc. = you get 100% for nothing..baically satisfaction..while on the 360..people see what you accomplished on Legend..so yeah its worth the extra 20 bucks..you dont lose..you GAIN with the xbox 360 version. ( 1080i, achievements, for starters.) :thumbsup:
