Steam Has Over 1000 Games on Sale
Steam has over 1000 games on sale during the holiday weekend. Steam is offering discounts on almost every title and megapack in their arsenal. Some of the titles on sale are Borderlands, Left 4 Dead 2, Bad Company, Mafia, Mafia 2, Fear, Prince of Persia, Xcom, X3 and many others. Their packs are also on sale and some of them are up to 75% off. This means for around $40.00 – $70.00 you can get between 12 and 20 titles.
Valve also announced that you will sometimes get additional discounts depending on the games you already own. For example lets say you want to buy portal and it’s already 5o% off but if you own Half Life 2, which you do… right… you get an additional 10% off. Steam detects that you own the title and applies the addtional discount.
Valve is also having daily deals that have additional discounts on titles that are only on sale. Check back every day to see the new titles that are on sale.
I found it interesting that the only titles that weren’t on sale were Activisions Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops. I think this goes to show how greedy they are as a company. This is especially apparent when games like Bad Company 2 are on sale for $6.97 and were released this year.
