Now that's plain lazy of them. I bought Civ5 at retail (it used steam too) and it had the install files on disc, must be developer specific. I have a monthly cap so that'd piss me off if it happened.
Agreed... The only reason I would buy a physical product now is to have it on hand for easy (re-)installs... But at least you get a physical box with a CD Key in it : ) Maybe a manual too? Or are they going purely digital now?
