I can't wait for the winter sale!!! i'm so excited
It is an ongoing winter sale. I find Steam to be no longer the first choice.
Oh man... amazon won't take my orders.... =(
Doom3 BFG edition on sale (65% OFF). Steam redeemable.
Imo it's a steal for that price if you like corridor shooters and never played Doom.
When will Steam start its Winter Solstice of wallet rape?
Probably right before paypal unfreezes my account
Dec 20 to Jan 4
Is this winter sale from steam, that good ?
It will END right after it unfeezes.
lol.... I know the one they were running late november was nice.... just wondering...
No it is horrible, they sometimes actually mark up the prices. That is why we're all excited for it.
If steam was from Brazil, this is what actually would happen.....
They put up (already on sale) AAA titles as daily deals for ridiculously low prices. It's really great if you want a particular game, and you can catch a deal like that.
That's the kind of info I wished to know!
Origin 40$ off-One Use
Oh its only AU
Hitman: Absolution for $20 on Amazon and various on Gamesplanet's Xmas sale
Steam sale is where you can get AAA brand new titles for $10.
If there is any one reason that PC gaming is better than console, it is the steam sales.
All Command&Conquer games for $25 on Gamersgate (17 games)
I have to disagree, I think Steam sales are actually harm PC gaming on the long run, but (as a customer) I agree that low prices are very tempting.
No they don't.
If they did you would not have had all the publishers supporting the sales. In fact the sales generate more revenue on the whole. These are digital games and represent sunk costs for the most part so there is no variable cost such as physical disks or logistics involved.
Your disagreement isn't with me. There are professionals who get paid decide these kinds of things.
I have a five year old daughter who may disagree with me on some things. I imagine this is akin to how those analysts view your disagreement.
FYI for anyone else: as far as I can see, GamersGate is for EU only.
I have the First Decade box which is everything up to Generals with expansion. Never got into the series after Tiberan Sun (which I liked a lot). Except Renegade, I still think that was a decent game and is definitively something I'd like to see more off in point.
EDIT: Why would Steam sales harm PC gaming in the long run?
Wait for it when she will be 13
It's economics, continuous sales erodes the value of the products on the market, which leads to a quality degradation. It will end up like the movies in Hollywood, publishers will only jump into remakes and new franchise episodes with 100% success probability. Nobody will risk anything, innovation will come to end on the PC, and will only happen in some indie titles if it goes like this in the future.
