From what I looked up on Google while writing this I can see that the download price for the normal edition is $49.99 and for the deluxe edition is $54.99 which would roughly be £30 and respectively £33 so you're basically paying for your deluxe edition almost £2 less then what I paid for it. After looking up all of this stuff I no longer agree with you because the digital version of the game basically appears the have the same price in the US and in Europe so your argument just became null, your only problem is that they don't retail physical version to the US, but if they would have, it would have been pricier, my guess around $40 more so it would seem that nobody is actually saving any money on boxes, shipping and all of the other stuff you just mentioned. I hope you get to read this because after I wrote all of this I realized that this is a huge addition to my previous argument.
Ok, that's that, but I still gotta say that I definitely don't agree with your last statement regarding the portability of the game. Those are just speculations, just as i could speculate the following thing: If the syntagm "Those who are alike stick together." is true, which most of the time it is, that would mean that your friends are more likely to be from the same social category as you are which means that they are likely to have, basically, almost the the same social environment that you do, which means that they are likely to have almost the same resources that you do, which means that they are very likely to have a computer that is pretty much as good as yours... but I wouldn't like to speculate.
PS: Great minds don't think alike, they complete each other.
