Steam Winter Sale Day 3 Not as Good? (Games Cheaper Elsewhere)

By Viet Do . December 21, 2013 . 11:00am


If you were hoping for even better deals on day número tres of Steam Winter Sale, you  might be a bit disappointed because the sales are decisively on the “meh” side of things. With the nine new batch of daily deals, only four titles are at their lowest ever price, the other five have been much cheaper.


The funny thing about Steam Sales is that there will always be that one person complaining about the deals being crappy and I guess I’m that person today.  Price table for today’s batch of Steam daily deals are below along with games cheaper than Steam Store price from elsewhere. Our picks would be LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes and BioShock Infinite Burial at Sea Episode #1, both at lowest ever price.

  • Thor Mjolnirs

    There’s the community choice and flash sales in addition to the daily deals, you know. And the Humble store.

  • DesmaX

    So far doing good, only brough Deus Ex: HR director’s cut.

    Still waiting for The Witcher 2 too

    • As long as you spot Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition for $5 or under then its a good deal. GOG and GMG often has it on sale during their sales period. Almost certain it’ll show up at any one of these stores during the next couple o’ days.

  • Devinja

    I appreciate both the sales breakdown and transparency in these posts. Flaah sales is what really makes these kind of things for steam.

    • Will add price breakdown for the flash sale in a sec. Agreed that the best price are usually in that and some of the community picks.

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution is now $5 on steam for the next 25 minutes(Flash Sale).

  • sharpshot909

    Although I already got the original Deus Ex: HR for free on PS+, I picked up the Director’s Cu yesterday on Steam.

  • Where is Wolf Among Us $13.40?

  • I think it’s solid. I just don’t have any damn cash after paying off my Zelda 3DS XL…
