It's actually illegal for Blizzard to sell it for cheaper.

Because if it was 20$ cheaper, or even 10$, then who the fudge would buy Retail? It's a law set by the Gov. & Blizzard and all that. Retail stores get their cut.

Also, you're paying for a license, the packaging, case, ect, all that? Blizzard already payed for it themselves, regardless if it's used or not, so to make the profit they expect, need to go full.

Why are new games on Steam Retail prices? Same reason, Retailers would sue the **** out of Valve for "under-cutting" on release, it's a rule.
