This is like in George Orwell's 1984, where everyone's chocolate ration is lowered from an already reduced amount, and people just want the previous insulting low ration.
The prices are grossly inflated now, and they'll be worse once the increase takes effect.
I'm part of the problem, because I'm still buying games, but I am starting to get tired of it.
We raised these prices inadvertently by purchasing games sight unseen. The distributors realized they were leaving money on the table.
Hard to go back now, they sort of have us by the balls.
