You have to consider the marketing value, the 'bait&switch' type of tactics. You go there for that game at $1.90, several things happen:
- You are in the site, might see other things you want to buy.
- Brand recognition: You now visited the site, the name 'GoGamer' did some rounds in your brain, it's now not an unknown site.
- Viral marketing: So, it made it into the Pricewatch thread here, and surely in many other threads in many other forums.
- Two Worlds 2: At this time whoever was really interested in the Two Worlds already bought it. Two Worlds 2 is coming, what best way to market it than have lots of new people buy Two Worlds 1 that otherwise weren't interested? Sell it cheap, then they'll buy TW2 when it comes out at full price if they liked #1.
