Call of Duty Flow Diagram
Call of Duty on the PC
Ok, so it's a Sunday morning and I was getting extremely bored. I've been thinking about picking up MW3 on the PC and decided to have a look to see how much it was on Steam since you need to play it through that. I was shocked to see that it costs £40. I jumped onto Amazon and saw that it was going for half of that price.
I really couldn't really believe that to get an actual disc, it would cost less than getting a digitial download. How can Steam charge this amount when you're not getting the physical disc. Sure, there's servers that need to be paid for, but there's no way that it's costing per customer more than the cost to make a disc, manual, boxing and then shipping it to the retailers.
Anyway, this really wound me up when I noticed this, so decided to throw together one of those small flow charts you see all over the internet. I'm not used to doing this kind of thing in Photoshop, but I had a bash anyway. it's not the best, but hopefully it gets my point across fairly well.
The moral of the story is to ALWAYS shop around, no matter what it is you're buying. Why pay more than what you have to, especially when people are strapped for cash.
