PopCap, ur doin it rong

Well first of all, if you haven't seen it already, this Plants vs. Zombies music video is pretty cute :) Although i could swear the song reminds me of something i've heard before, but i can't think what.

But anyways, it convinced me to try out the demo, which was fun, but i was reluctant to spend $20 on it. Then i happened to reread the VGCats post about it and noticed that it claimed the game was just $10. I double checked the demo, it said $20. I checked the PopCap website, it said $20. Then i checked Steam, and they have it for $10. They also have all the other PopCap games for $10 each, while on the PopCap website they mostly seem to vary from $15 to $20. What kind of company charges more when you buy it from them directly then when you get it from a major retailer? (And it's the downloadable version in both cases, so there's no difference in what you get as far as i can tell.)

Now that i know i can get it for "half off" i'm strongly tempted to pick a copy up.
