As the dust settles from the Steam Summer Sale, Cassidee from Leviathyn.com asks why console digital marketplaces don't start to implement Steam-type sales on their games.
I love Steam and it's sales. It's pretty much the reason why I don't turn my PS3 on often anymore. I've spent maybe $100 so far this sale (which is nearly over now [probably a good thing]), and bought: - Alan Wake - Alan Wake's American Nightmare - Beyond Good & Evil - Dead Island - Dear Esther - Dragon Age: Origins (Ultimate Edition) - F.E.A.R - F.E.A.R. Extraction Point - F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate - Fallout: New Vegas - Half Life - Half Life 2 - Half Life 2: Deathmatch - Half Life 2: Episode 1 - Half Life 2: Episode 2 - Half Life 2: Lost Coast - Half Life Deathmatch: Source - Half Life: Blue Shift - Half Life: Opposing Force - Half Life: Source - L.A. Noire - SimCity 4: Deluxe - Team Fortress: Classic I also bought every bit of Dungeon Defenders DLC (excluding skins) for less than $10. I should also note that all of these games came with all of the DLC when I bought them. On consoles I'd probably be able to pick up L.A. Noire, Dead Island, and Dragon Age: Origins for the same price.
Those games at gamestop used would only cost $50. Either way steam sale is epic I could only get betheseda pack, fallout 3, binding of Isaac, and terraria though because I spent my money on building a pc
that is the point used it doesn't matter if you can get better deals on the games used. retailers that sale console games will not sale new games that cheap. maybe 15$ a game if a special is going on and thats just on older games. very rarely you see a game that is just a month or 2 old get discounts.
Lol at your disagree from angry console noob
I expect no less from N4G.
