Also fun to bait flamers with, computers have a higher initial cost than consoles as well.
If you already have at least 720p TV than yes.
I don't. Your argument is invalid :P
My TV has a green spot in the center of the screen. I would need a new TV to properly enjoy console games anyway :(
I hear all the time that Steam makes PC gaming cheaper, and that's primarily DD (few people buy Steam games boxed in comparison).
FWIW, I agree with the sentiment you expressed, DD gaming should be cheaper.
Digital distribution sales seem to drive down the price of boxed copies of PC games, as stores need to at least vaguely match the prices of these sales to sell a lot of units, past the first month or two. Digital distribution sites often sell games at a relatively high price outside of sales, but boxed copies can be found cheaply.
Borderlands 2 can for an example be found for 269 sek (boxed) but even though it is 25% off on Gamer's Gate, they still sell it for 322 sek (ordinary price 430).
Interestingly enough, the console versions of Borderlands 2 have also dropped in price quite fast, and the best price is 289sek (both Xbox & PS3). Using a price comparison site to get those numbers, does not include postage.
The best prices for boxed copies for the other games listed (PC/Xbox/PS):
Mass Effect 3 120/189/165
Need for Speed most wanted (PC only has limited edition up for sale, other are standard): 49/122/398
Assassin's Creed 3: 249/430/430 (WiiU 398).
