Steam Holiday Sale! Disappointment Ensues.by Thomas Hruska on Dec. 20, 2010, under Arts
Christmas is just around the corner and Steam once again brings us their Holiday Sales craziness with all sorts of deals. However, if you’ve been paying attention to the deals over the past few weeks and hoping for something even cheaper, then these deals are likely going to disappoint you. Publishers are only bringing us 25% to 33% off on most games with misleading teasers of up to 80% savings, but the deep discounts aren’t on the games people probably want. 25% to 33% is better than nothing but really doesn’t come anywhere close to the 75% off we were seeing a few days ago.
Fortunately, it looks like there will be additional savings of individual games over the next few days. So, check Steam daily for deals. Maybe that game someone asked for this Christmas will go on sale at a good price and all that “patient waiting” (procrastination) will pay off.
(Some Mac games – via SteamPlay – are on sale too.)
