Steam and Steams creator has acknowledged that the games are overpriced, and they are actually doing something about it. They have seen sales increases of up to 3000% since they started those weekend deals. Although I am all in favour of these weekend deals, I still think their normal prices need to be dropped. There is no way like 5 GBs of bandwidth costs the same as packing, material, manual, transportation costs, etc.
