You guys are totally missing my point...

'Economies of scale' is/are irrelevant in the scope of this argument. Fifty bucks today is just the same as fifty bucks 20 years ago. IOW, $50 is $50. Whether that $50 back then equates to $30 or $25 now doesn't matter. Games are still $50 - $60 at launch and the promise of cd's and dvd's was to bring that cost down, which never happened. Games were $50 - $60 when released twenty years ago and they're $50 - $60 now (depending on the game, which 'version' you get, if you pre-order...blah, blah, blah) C'mon, why are you two having a hard time with this? Yes, 'Digital Deluxe' versions are the 'Limited/Special Edition' of the downloadable release but the fact remains that they need not be that high if only because we continue to buy them at that price. Sure I, and most well-educated (or at least well informed Inquisitive ) gamers, like most who come here, know better. But we're not the ones that spend the millions on these 'Deluxe' versions, or on 'casual' quick-time-events disguised as mini-games, or hats for TF2 (*ahem!*) and cows for Farmville (or whatever it is you buy for a dollar or two at a time in these games). And those gamers aren't aware that there is and should be a difference in price between the two...This isn't rocket science, guys...
