Newegg originally had the PC version up for $50 until the game showed up on steam. Now everywhere is charging $60 for it. Idk if it's an etailer decision or an EA decision, but I feel like steam is to blame for the recent price hike.

Steam acts as a digital platform for game distribution it does not set the pricing of games. The price is set by the publisher. There is a wholesale price of the game largely depends on volume.. So if for example one online site was buying 1,000 copies of the game they might get a 20% discount on the game .. or if their steam they might buy 1 million copies and enjoy a greater discount.

So in conclusion .. the price steam is showing is considered the MSRP (Manufacture Suggested Retail Price). If they want to run a special deal that lowers the value, that is a marketing decision to bring in more users to its store in hopes that the hit it takes on the sale item they will regain it back with additional purchases.

Don't know how many times people have to say STEAM doesn't set prices unless it's their own game.

So, what is included with the Limited Edition? Because there's nothing specific in the details.

Activision is to blame, they are the ones that started pricing **** at 60$ in the first place.

Really? I'm pretty sure the first video games to go up to $60 was back with n64 or maybe even earlier. Let's all blame activision.

Actually he's right. PC games were $49.99 standard around 2004-2008. It wasn't until MWF2 released when we started seeing $60 PC games.

We all saw it coming though. What's odd though is I noticed it's mainly console ports. Darkspore is listed as $50 which is also an EA game. I'm wondering if the trend is for games that extend to consoles as well as PCs
