Though that is the case, I disagree with the point you are trying to make. Orange Box, DVD version. Half Life 2, DVD version. Just Cause 2, DVD version. You get the idea - if you buy the physical product, then you can install it from that physical product. Assuming you have an interent connection depsite buying the physical version this is silly.
but if you have the DVD version you - iirc - don't have to activate it through steam.
I'm honestly not sure on that matter and will check when I can, for curiosity's sake.
