Deal Details

Last Edited by dweezy July 23, 2012 at 01:57 AM
It's here! Are your wallets ready for the abuse? Here's hoping there are great deals to be had here. I'll update this thread with sales and deals.

Click here for sale's frontpage: http://store.steampowered.com/

Quick primer for the newcomers:

  • Daily Deals: Each day, new daily deals appear at 10AM PST and expires the next day at 10PM
  • Flash Deals: At any given time, there will be 4 deals that won't last long (several hours). When one expires, another replaces it.
  • Community Vote Deals: You get to vote on what the next deal is. Every 8 hours.
  • Deals spanning the entire event: Various games and bundles are on sale for the entire sale, however play it smart and only buy a game if it's a daily deal (when the price is lower). Resort to buying what doesn't go on sale as a daily deal at the end of the sale.
Steam Sale Commandments:
  • Thou shalt not purchase any individual title unless it is a daily/flash/community deal. Wait until the end to buy otherwise.
  • Thou shalt not hesitate to jump on too-good-to-be-true deals as there have been price mistakes in the past sales. Price mistakes are honored.
  • Thou shalt not hesitate to dip into the kids' college funds to buy these games
  • Thou shalt live off of ramen until the end of the sale
====Current Deals====
Remember, never buy a game unless it's a daily/flash/community deal. If it never shows up as a daily/flash/community deal, go ahead and buy it on sale at the last minute.

7/22 Daily Deals (ends 10PM 7/23):
Flash Deals:
When a flash deal ends, another begins...
Community Vote Deal:
A new poll and deal every 8 hours...

====Event-wide Deals (July 12th - 23rd)====
I cannot express this enough: only buy games if it is a daily/flash/community deal. Resort to purchasing on-sale games at the last minute if it never appears as a daily deal.

Individual Titles:
A subjective listing of some cheap/good games that I believe are already at their lowest. Might as well buy these whenever. Please do your own research first before buying!

Publisher Bundles:

Hopefully they provide a heavy discount to that Saint's Row The Third Franchise Pack that includes all the DLC. Otherwise, I'll get it at Amazon after they beat Steam's price.

I wanted saints row 3 because I heard it was really good and alot of fun....I also wanted it to win, so I can buy it from Amazon for cheaper than Steam....since Tony over at CAG said he will beat Steam's price if SR3 wins the community vote

Amazon FTW

I've already got SR3, but I voted for it just so everyone else could enjoy the craziness. I haven't LOL'd at a game so much in a long time. Also, I hope to pick up some of the DLC at a bargain Smilie

Yup, heard so many good times with SR3...can't wait to buy from Amazon!

I actually wanted Witcher 2 to go on sale as well....but after seeing 60% off, I was kinda ehh about it....I was hoping for 75%...maybe Amazon will do it? Problem is, I want the Steam version of W2, not the DRM free version Frown ....maybe Amazon will start carrying Steam version W2? lolLMAO

Some good news and bad news per Amazon Tony:
Quote :
Just wanted to drop a note on SRTT. We're not matching because we're running either the same or a better deal (looking like a better deal) next week, so we don't want to match, drop price next week and have a ton of angry customers.
Unless Steam runs a terrific price for the Franchise Pack, I'll wait patiently for Amazon's sale.

Quote from amoghthegamer View Post :
hey is GTA IV multiplayer interchangeable? Like if someone bought the game from gamersgate can they play with someone who bought it from Steam since GTA IV uses Rockstar's Multiplayer...

Do you happen to know?
If I'm not mistaken, it just needs to be the same version (which can cause ya to do some stupid human tricks if you need to downgrade and you're the one using Steam). You're still logging on Rockstar via Steam to play multiplayer, so I'd imagine it'd work, though I have no first-hand experience.

I wonder if the SR3 Franchise pack (SR3 + all DLC) will be available at Amazon?

The word right now is, Amazon will be beating Steam's price, but it won't happen until next week....I am interested in DLC, and would like to buy it from Amazon....but Steam might do the whole Franchise pack for 75%....and thats a steal
