I sometimes feel a little guilty seeing people pick up and buy games at EB which I know are priced 50% or even less when purchased digitally. Of particular note was when the half price orange box sales have been on steam and EB were still flogging it for 2-3 times the regular steam price.

I placate myself by reasoning they don't have the download allowance, proceed to point out quietly to Opti what I paid for it, both laugh, leave empty handed and then come home and play said games with a sly smile.
