So you're essentially saying Steam is bad because they allow the Publishers to set the price and decide when their content should be on sale? I believe a new copy of Black Ops for PC costs the same at GameStop as it does on Steam. Amazon tends to sell their stuff at a loss knowing customers will generally buy other good through them to more than compensate, so it's hard to compare to them.
As you can see, it's not only Amazon selling that game at half the price of Steam. That's only one game too. Try the comparison with several others, the trend is always the same, even though the difference isn't always as large.
Therefore, you'd have to be an idiot to buy it directly off Steam for double the price, wouldn't you? Just get it off Amazon, Game or whoever, activate it on Steam and recycle the box if you don't want it.
