I was going to buy half-life 2 over steam because of the ease of it on my 1Mb connection, and assumed that it would be vastly cheaper as it is American and we get ripped off for everything, not to mention the astounding exchange rate at the moment. But the "gold" version is $90 US (roughly £45) and the "gold" version is on amazon.co.uk for £33! I was gobsmacked. How can they justify the cost difference? Especially when you actually get something tangiable for your money buying the "bronze" and "silver" versions at some online stores, cheaper than just for downloading the game from steam?
