    Sounds to me like you've never registered a retail game with Steam before?

    its the publishers at fault here, they dont allow a lot of their games on any digital service, or they demand higher prices.


    IMO its a load of shit, online stores should be able to set a global (per language, anyway) price and have it based on their home currency.

    I am sure they could, but why would they, when they can have you pay more or simply refuse to provide the service where they feel that the profits they make in one region are not enough in another?

    I disagree, though maybe if you are playing solo I can see that opinion.

    i'd disagree with that even. i haven't loaded mp once and feel it was worth the full price at launch. but that's me ;)

    BFBC2 @ 15$ was very worth it. BFBC2 at 6.60$ was a steal.

    This game at 35$ is OK, meh if you only play SP.

    I admit I am cheap, and I rarely buy games new, I wait till the steam special :p
