It's been on sale through GMG, Gamersgate, Amazon and Origin for the last few weeks at 50% off and the sales figures were released like a month ago that they were at half their sales goal... this isn't new. It was the same for Hitman and Sleeping Dogs. They continually overshoot sales expectations and then slash the price in half soon after.... still good games though... sooo... what's your point?

It's a cycle. When Game A doesn't meet its rediculous sales expectations, shareholders demand Game B do better. Game B is then overhyped to compensate and also fails to meet sales expectations. Repeat for Games C, D, etc. Throw in excuses like piracy and restrictive DRM as the solution and you get our current PC gaming dilemma.

The games aren't bad. The companies are making good games - they're just making financial promises they can't keep. In its current situation, it benefits the late buyer in the short-term. We get the games that had a lot of money behind them for huge discounts when sales need a boost. However, in the long-term, these situations never work out and shareholders will invest their money elsewhere.

RIP THQ. :(

I got mine fo free with my Graphics card... or I would have never bought or played it, since I did not like the Tomb Raider games. Im glad I got this though...

I think it's more like Game A fails to hit targets so goes on sale within a month of release. Game B gets released and everyone thinks it's going to be on sale within a month of release so waits to buy it meaning it initially fails to meet targets fulfilling the prophecy of those that waited. They should value their games higher and break the cycle...but my wallet's kinda happy they don't.

That is how I got it - however, if I happened to miss that sale, I'd be fine with spending the $5 extra to get it through Steam. Still a really great deal.

So is mine. Sadly, it's not up to the customers or the companies - it's entirely in the hands of the investors. Unless the company is prepared to swallow a huge withdrawal of financial support, they're going to keep the shareholders as happy as they can for as long as they can.
