It always puzzled me how Shadow of Mordor GOTY is sold on Steam for the regular price of $43.99 CAD which occasionally goes on sale down to around $12-15 or thereabouts during special promotions, and most other authorized Steam resellers seem to more or less have this pricing as well but strangely, Bundlestars which claims also to be an authorized reseller - has the same game perpetually priced at $10.99. It was previously a couple bucks more but it is currently $10.99 regular price always. Not "today only" or "weekend mega-blowout sale!", but every single day of every single week for like the last 12 months or more, basically ever since I've seen it show up on their website. http://store.steampowered.com/app/241930
Yeah, it shows $43.99 as the regular price too, but a regular price on something means that that price is the normal price that you see all of the time, and a discounted promo price only occurs on occasion. With Bundlestars, they might list the regular price at $43.99 but I don't think they've ever sold a single copy of it for more than $15 as it is perpetually on sale.
Anyone know what gives on that? Are they claiming to be a legit authorized Steam reseller but replenishing their key supplies off of the back of a truck in a dark alley in Russia or something?
It's the only game I ever notice that with, and what makes it even more odd, is that ITAD does not appear to show any price history to corroborate the price I am seeing here perpetually. ITAD's price history graph for Bundlestars for this game is $50 hard line then a price drop to $43.99 hard line.
I think Bundlestars officially has the one true ring, and are using it to secretly manipulate the price of the game.
