Yeah, the way they make the money on games is this: They have to completely approve every game that comes out for their system, then they (not positive on this step) do all the manufacturing of the discs themselves, and they take something like $5 per game sold, so the prices have to be higher so that the developer/publisher can make a profit. Then they have special deals like the Greatest Hits games and stuff where they cut a break on their royalties and all... it's a sordid business. It's good to be in charge of all the distribution myself.
