I don't understand the thinking behind why they would even want to go through the terror of the self-checkout lane. Not to mention adding coupons to the mix.
Some people just want to watch the world burn.
It's amazing how some people will stop at nothing to loudly express how much they need to allow
(ever notice how PC games cost as much as console games nowadays?), if they can make a buck, they'll do it.
No, I have not noticed that on new releases. That's one of the best reasons for PC games in general is that they are the same price at release and quickly fall in price within a few months. They are often filled with more content to begin with as well. Maybe if you are only talking about the games that start on consoles then move to PC later since they try to keep the continuity the same then in rare cases it's true.
