    This, I gave up on Gamestop as a source for PC games and accessories years ago.

    Pretty sure the PC market has always been the minority compared to the aggregate console market.

    I bought Destiny 2 for $26 on Amazon the other day. Why was it $26? Because it seems that the physical box pricing can be whatever the retailer wants to set it to and the digital pricing seems to be suggested or set by the publisher. I've seen physical copies on sale for 50% off or more 6 months before the digital copy gets that discount. And you get the same code to activate on Steam, UPLAY, Battlenet, Origin, etc. Just have to wait 2 days for the thing to arrive.

    I admit, the pricing is unclear sometimes. It probably is because of a number of things like physical inventory needing to get out the door. Shelf space costs money.

    Last game I picked up at Gamestop was Diablo III: RoS.

    (and only because at the time it was half-price compared to Bnet)

    Exaggeration is an understatement here...literally.

    Nowadays, maybe a bit (at least as far as the lines go)...though I can say that back in the days before Steam/widespread internet this was a pretty common situation, in my experience.

    I actually typed up an exact experience I had there. It was during the PS2 days, though, hah.

    For PS2 games, I did rely on gamestop quite a bit. I even got my PS2 slim before the pre-order people got theirs, because I was in the store with cash in hand, and I knew the manager.

    Edit: Oh, yeah, I also live out in the county, not in a town, so it's a fairly long drive to get to the mall, and back home...
