Thanks a lot guys... what i am seeing right now is that most of the notable games are at a price drop of 50% with an off chance of 66% or 75%... i just wanted to know that does it happen that those 50% discounts jump up to 75% on Christmas... i know its hard to tell... but someone who has seen steam sale for some time will have an idea
Thanks again guys much appreciated ;)
I started using steam last christmas, s I've only really lived through the summer sale, but my experience says there are 3 types of deals:
1- default sale. This lasts the whole sale, till the 27th I believe. Usually around 25-50%
2- special sale. This lasts for a single day, or just a few hours for flash sales. around 50-80%
3- Maxi pack sale. This usually lasts longer and have great discounts, but any game you already own is lost so it's only good for newcomers. Plus you probably buy stuff you don't really want.
My modus operandi was: get anything you like on a special sale, and on the last day you taken anything that didn't get a better offer because it's unlikely to get much better on the near future.
And then there's capcom, which ignores sales and still tries to sell DMC3 for 20€.
