Games are $60 at release due to marketing, packaging, distribution, etc. Digital copies are always the same price, then rarely go on sale. Often times you'll find a game $30 months after release yet the digital version is still $60.
Of course they do, as they wouldn't offer them at that price if there wasn't an audience for it. Some of those people are CAGs, too.
Some publishers have been offering their new games for pre-order at a discount and we've been getting sales on a retail game or two almost every week, so they are definitely offered on sale a decent amount of the time.
