Crysis 2 and Duke Nukem Forever with same music?

Two interesting videos have been revealed lately: The Duke Nukem Forever Trailer (yes! it finally will be released, incredible, btw) and the Crysis 2 Multiplayer Trailer.

just using stock music for advertisement, niko, its done all the time when the actual soundtrack in question is either not done yet or they don’t want to reveal anything yet.

just look at the Lord of the Rings: Two Towers trailer, which famously uses Lux Aeterna from Requiem for a Dream

If you really want two “original themes” that shamelessly stole from each other, compare the two themes from “Risen” and “Fallout 3”: &
