I know their crooked law to gaming industry may not translate to crooked laws elsewhere, hence, I have been using the word, "likely".

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt here, and assume that you are using the word 'crooked' incorrectly, and meant to say something else.

In related topic, games are also a lot more expensive. Partially due to their high cost of distribution, sales team, accounting team, customer support team, and etc.

The future of physical games is very limited, and will be phased out as electronic sales become the norm. At that point, they will be in the same boat as the other players mentioned above, trying to justify higher prices for something that involves no significant cost difference.
