Understand Black Friday, but I'm going to start responding to these posts by asking you to name a couple of deals Steam has had that have been better than anything we've run since January...

Cheers,
Tony


Will, Steam did have Rome: Total War - Gold Edition for ONE DOLLAR last Friday... :P

Right - I remember that Steam sale!
SR: TT - Franchise Pack was missing only the new (At that time) Genki Girl Pack, though.
I knew there had to be one that Amazon DVG didn't top! :P

How do you enter the code if the digital download page says "Buy and Download" instead of something like "Add to Cart"? Is this one-click or is there a page after "Buy and Download" that has a place for coupon codes?
I really wanna bite on Sleeping Dogs for $22...

It goes to a review order page where you can enter coupons.

truthfully, the only games I've bought on Steam are games you guys don't have. hell, I fully expect amazon to have better sales, again, for the second year in a row. Last year I distinctly remember being surprised someone could dominate everyone else for digital downloads and you guys only made it better as soon as the year started with those $5 off codes. Nobody, steam included, has matched you guys for a year now.

biggest difference for me here? Glad to see you guys are carrying Dark Souls. I may not get to it due to backlog, but still...

Tony, will we be able to use the discount code with the batman bundle? If you're answer is yes... it's an incredible sale!! (7.5$) ;)

PS: If anyone wants to share the batman bundle contact me by pm, I'm just interested in AA Goty, not in Arkham City. I'll pay 33% of the bundle price

Sorry for posting it here, if it's a little offtopic.

Good luck finding it (serious tone).
It hasn't been an easy find.

See this TRU Thread.
Get calling and/or visiting your local Toys R Us and see if they got it.
They're discounting A LOT of their PC retail games stock and dumping it out at $10 per PC game.
I picked up COD: MW3, Diablo 3, Starcraft 2 from two different TRU's.

Many people have found all kinds of games - i.e. RAGE, BF3, Sims 3, Sims 3 expansions, Batman: AC, etc.

Oh, that'd be killer if Tony puts on sale Dark Souls: PTD Edition at a sale price...AND also has that extra percent off code going, too! ;)

Toys R Us clearance sale on their PC game stock. Obviously inventory varies from store to store and most are probably cleaned out by now (it's been a couple days).

Thank you Santa C.... err... Tony for the great deals and to add a coupon on top of that just makes it magical ! :D

btw any chance we could see Quantum Conundrum Season Pass, Castle Crachers, Orcs Must Die! and Orc Must Die! 2 available for PC downloads ? (pref. steam redeemable )

Also deals for Dead Island Game of the Year and Airline Tycoon 2 would be very welcome.

Sorry in advance if you have already gave answers for those games.

Pretty much this. You guys have great sales, especially compared to the garbage Steam's been doing, but your selection is still ain't got the depth. I was looking for some recent stuff to use that coupon on and found that you lacked download (or in some cases any) versions of Deponia, To The Moon, Book of Unwritten Tales, Kotor 2, Trine 2, FTL, Torchlight 2...

I mean, I don't have a clue how this stuff is distributed or whatever and maybe it's not fair to expect parity on virtually unknown adventure games, but since Tony wanted to know it what manner Steam was better, that's how.

Upcoming Deals Everyone!

Deal of the Week: 10/7-10/13

Fear Pack: $9.99

Fear 1
Fear 2
Fear 3

Batman Pack: $9.99

Batman Arkham City
Batman Arkham Asylum

Both WB Packs activate on Steam.


This is really crappy of Amazon. They were 50% off on Labor Day. I purchased all five of these. Fear 3 was $15, Fear 2 was $7.50, Fear was $5, Batman AC was $15, Batman AA GOTY was $10. It was a huge deal because WB had just joined Amazon and the games joined the 50% off promotion. That ended up being $52.50.. now they're $20? I could've saved $32?! I feel completely screwed over, especially since that was a holiday sale and this is just a regular sale. I'd shrug it off if it was a few bucks, but $32 is a lot.

I've only been able to install AA since they're all so heavy on the disk space (Fear 1 + expansions is 17+ gb).

Seriously, you win some you lose some. If you want the best deal, you better off never buying anything and waiting forever.

If you happened to already play the games and liked them, then what's the harm done? Heck, I bought Crysis 2 when it launched and it went down by $20 the very next day. I felt kind of PO'ed but realized the game, none the less, was a lot of fun and worth the $50 I paid.

I understand that, and yeah, they're fantastic games (I've played them on console), but I have only been able to install AA because of bandwidth limits (thanks Comcast!) and played the intro of it. It just feels reversed, it feels like the Labor Day sale should've been the packs for $9.99 each and the weekly sale should've been these at the sale prices I paid. Am I supposed to avoid the holiday sales now because there's probably going to be a better sale a few weeks after?

I hope it does work on preorders soon, I'd like to snag Hitman Absolution.

I have to agree to a certain degree. It's frustrating when you buy something and it is immediately put on a better sale month or so later.

We buy some of these deals thinking, okay, Tony pushed and got a really good price on these games, and we buy them. Yet when a month or so later they're way cheaper? That begs the question of why they weren't just that price the last time.

Obviously you win some you lose some, but that's kind of a surefire way to frustrate customers a bit. The same thing has happened to me a handful of times recently. It almost feels like we should just ignore every bundle deal Amazon puts together the first time, and wait a month till it repeats at a better price. That's kind of weird.

(It would be nice if we could "price match" within a certain amount of time, but that's probably asking too much.)

Terraria - $1 (Steam),  X3: Terran Conflict - $2 (Steam)Fable: The Lost Chapters - $2 (Steam)

You should avoid some sales simply because those were mediocre prices. All of those games have been much cheaper several times over the past year. The only decent deal in the WB debut was Lego Batman 2.

I hear your feedback, but I'm curious, what time period do you think is acceptable for spacing between promotions? Our general rule of thumb is 1 month. Additionally, it makes more sense to launch products at a lower discount, see how customers respond, and then plan future promotions based on that response.

When I say "it makes sense" I am speaking from a statistical/financial/logical perspective.

Curious what the general thought here is, should we not be promoting products within 2 months of each other? Does that mean that Black Friday discounts should be the exact same as Christmas Sale Discounts?

Was tempted by the EA pack for $10, but couldn't pass it up for $7.50. Double dipping on Mirror's Edge and Bulletstorm, but I kept Bulletstorm in my Steam inventory and my Mirror's Edge was a physical disc that's who knows where. Now I can put up my Steam version of Bulletstorm for trade and I'll have more than KoA on my Origin account, so maybe I'll use it a bit more.

This. I posted the same thing during that sale period. A lot of those games were cheaper during other sales. When you buy games, if you want the best deals you should really look at past sale history.
