I think Steam's reputation has built up over time in a similar way to eBay's, so now everyone just assumes it's always cheaper, and they don't bother checking any more, so now, an unscrupulous vendor can make a few extra quid simply by advertising at a very high price with a discount to a high price, and everyone thinks it's a bargain.

~ The manual said "Requires Windows '95 or better" I installed Linux!
