Why is the new South Park game so expensive on steam?

Because they can get away with it. Consoles take $10 off for the privilege of being on their consoles, plus shipping and manufacturing. None of that exists with digital PC releases, however, so there's really no excuse for it. Honestly, going by how much games cost to make now, all prices everywhere should be going up, yet only PC games have seen a notable increase within recent memory. We'll see with this coming generation, however; I predict console games being boosted to $70, and PC games soon to follow- because they can.


Doesnt Valve take 30%, even more than any console manufacture?


Comparing Valve to the console manufacturer isn't correct.
In this situation Valve is a distributor, so it's more correct to compare their cut to the cut that say WalMart or GameStop would take of physical games, which is probably around 30%.
