Mega-Bargain Bucket: Steam Goes Sales Mad

Digital distribution’s a funny bugger – it’s growing ever harder to predict and apply patterns to it. One day, a new videogame from Steam et al is more expensive than its boxed-copy counter-part, then a few weeks later it can be selling for next-to-nothing. The Steam Christmas sale is almost unreal in both the amount and extent of its discounts, and it’s going to be having Valve’s competitors howling with despair. Honestly: some of these deals are yer-actual-genuine-proper-mental. Today only: Mirror’s Edge is £3.24, GTA IV is £5. In general over the seasonal shakedown: Braid is £1.74, Medieval II: Total War is £2.50, Ghostbusters is £5, Batman’s £20… And dozens and dozens more. Of course, there are sales on at the other major download services too..

Gamersgate – Highlights include Football Manager 2009 £10 and Bioshock £12
Impulse – Eve for £6, Shadowgrounds for £2.45“>Direct2Drive – Torchlight $10, Champions $15
GoG – Fallout $4, Sacrifice $4

Some good stuff, but none of it holds a candle to Steam’s insanity. Honestly, we try not to seem to prefer Steam on RPS, but it’s impossible to not punch the air in delight in the face of this. If you need another way of combing through the huge box of delights (Steam’s rather perversely categorising it by genre), SavyGamer’s gone and turned the whole lot into a giant list with direct links and prices
