    probably cause pc games have a hard enough time selling, they might as well lower the price to try to get some sales :dunno:

    You buy X amount of games over the course of X amount of years. That's ten dollars per game that you're saving from not buying said game for a console. After "saving" that ten dollars per game for a couple years you then use that money to upgrade your computer, no? So to me, it ends up costing the same :o

    Could be wrong, but that's my opinion of what happens. Of course people start sugar coating it and shit so that they don't have to admit that they get taken and they can still be elitist about being PC crew. Am I close?

    But the savings go toward something that benefits you.
