Probably since EA is only the retail publisher, Think they did the same thing with other Valve titles aswell.

this is sin episode 1 sin 1 source and sin mp. Thats why its now 19.99. If thats to much money for you i think your crazy, no offense. But sin 1 to me is worth 19 alone, not to mention sin episode 1 and sin mp heh.

Ok let's see....that's 9 episodes at ~5 hours each for $19.99 an episode
Hmm.. $180 for ~45 hours of game play. Most FPSers get really drawn out at the 20hour mark...SIN might be alittle much. Even if it is tolerable for 45 hours...at $180 its way over the top expensive.
I'm taking a pass for now on SIN.....
