Free-market capitalism and Laissez-faire.

17.99 euro on greenmangaming.com (legendary edition). If u use the voucher ( PLOCVS-G2T5YX-DATY6M ) at checkout it probably get an extra 20% discount (so u will get a total discount of 60%).

If the retail disc is cheaper, just get that. Its going to install on Steam either way.

Doesn't matter to steam where you buy the game they have the contract with game owners to up load it through them, wether you buy from them or not.(Need steam to download)

Check Ebay. I bought Skyrim off there for $19.99. New, unopened, with free shipping.

Blame ZeniMax Media, Steam doesn't set prices. The publishers do.

Wait a bit, they always go on sale every so often. Then they can br a h3ll of a lot cheaper than stores, but only for a short time.

Why are you getting upset? Just buy it where ever is cheapest. It still uses steam anyway and will still go on your account.

There are so many reasons that a shop could be cheaper than steam, for instance the shop could be selling it cheap as it has lots of copies to get rid of (and its not selling so they need some money back) or it maybe a loss leader to get people in the shop or just to attract attention etc.

Just because you can get something cheaper elsewhere, does not mean steam needs to drop its price.
