It is sometimes cheaper to pre-order on Steam, but occasionally publishers will do exclusive deals with certain 'bricks-and-mortar' retailers which allows them to sell it a lot cheaper than Steam can (although this happens the other way round occasionally too).

It does not cost anything additional to pre-order a game. Most stores will allow you to put a minimum of $5 down the day you pre-order, which goes toward the total cost of the game when you pick it up later. You're then able to pick the game up on the date of release without worry that they'll run out of copies before you get there.
