    No, no. I brought Napoleon Total War on a disc. But the disc only acts as an activation key, telling steam that you've brought the game. So you download the game off steam. Steam knows that you're using a disc, so you don't need to buy it again.

    Essentially, you're just buying the game from the store rather than going to the steam store page and buying it online. There is no difference.
