Of course steam's mega sales are profitable.
Since I've got into pc gaming I've noticed the mega discounted stuff is not brand probs would not of sold with out them.
for example i love GTA 3 its the best IMO
but i never thought to look for it on steam i knew iv was on steam but hate it. so by doing the GTA bundle they made a profit off me they never would of had no matter the alot of these games have sold well already and ran a profit before the sales

Especially when you consider how many games see sales boosts and revitalization far after their original release.

One of the things Gabe Newell mentioned in interview a couple years back was the first 1/2 off sale of L4D they had. He said the sale generated more profit than release week did.

the mega sales help many indie devs/major publishers get their games sold

Activision is screwing games\industry up - they are creating this huge nickel and dime system and trying to promote other companies to follow, as if they don't make enough money already

Bobby you should be removed from the helm
