Please don't bring politics into this, it has nothing at all to do with this discussion.
Again, we do not control any pricing by any retailers. If they would like to charge you less for the boxed copy than we do for the download, we are happy as long as they are happy. There's nothing wrong with ordering from them instead. Our digital download price for this product will remain as it is, as it was announced before release and as was expected. We have followed this pricing model with all our download games to try to minimize some currency fluctuations for both us and our customers.
Sometimes it's $1 off to our advantage, sometimes it's $1 off to your advantage. I should point out that in many areas of the world this is better than retail pricing. Many large game companies sell a game for $29.99 in the US and then sell it for 29.99 Euros as well. There is a marketing basis for this in perceived value, but our goal is to be as fair as possible to all of our customers.
