If there’s one thing I’m quickly learning about PC gaming, it’s that the sales never stop. Ever. Something is always on sale somewhere, and often services such as Steam will throw up ridiculous sales seemingly for no apparent reason.
Take today for example. Here I am with my wallet thinking what a cheap day it’s been, having spent nothing but £1.42 on a sandwich for breakfast. I’m happy, my wallet is happy and my bank account is happy. But what’s this? Steam sale? SEGA slashing prices on just about everything they’ve ever done for an entire weekend? Uh oh, here we go again.
Alpha Protocol is £1.50. Aliens vs Predator is £3.74. The Dreamcast Collection is £3.74. The Mega Drive/Genesis Collection is £5.49 (and includes 40 games). Those are just the headline deals. Search for anything at all on Steam from now through until Sunday, and if SEGA have had any involvement in it at all then it’ll likely be on sale.
Can anyone confirm to me that Alpha Protocol is worth 8 pence more than my sandwich?
EDIT: There’s also 80% off the Company of Heroes franchise, 19% off The Witcher 2 and Brink is back at the lower price of £14.99, which given the absence of a sales percentage is seemingly a permanent reduction.
