To add @ what Blameless has mentioned and add some fuel to his truth;
I have several games I have bought from D2D. The most expensive game (out of say a dozen) was $9.99. $10 or less per game on a dozen games.
From Steam, all of my last purchases with the only exceptions being MW2 and BFBC2 (which I did pay full price for both - accounting for the $10 discount for pre-order of BFBC2) I have not purchased a game from Steam over $19.99 and that was for AC. Everything else has been less than $20 a piece from Steam.
Fuel for the fire!
And also... why does this thread keep coming back in the news section?! Must be us people posting on and on ...
I might agree with you guys on certain markets about the pricing but gaming is probably the best market there is when it comes to consumer cost. You get a product that has been $40-$60 since the mid-80's that gives you anywhere from 10-100hrs of enjoyment. Where else can you get so much from so little?
