Price of PC games

I noticed that they bumped the gold edition up to $90 from the usual $80.

What's the deal with that?

I'd never buy at launch. Back in the day when games became rarer and more expensive, buying certain titles (like Panzer Dragoon Saga) at launch made sense.

With PC releases dropping to half price in a couple months and below $10 after a year or so, it's ridiculous to even consider.

That said, when choosing between platforms, I look at genres and DRM.

Is it a FPS or TPS? I will buy on PC only (or Wii/WiiU if it supports Wiimote for aiming, but Nintendo consoles don't really have multiplatform releases).

Does the PC version have always online DRM/server-side saving without being an MMO? I'll buy the console version without that nonsense.
