The Steam summer sale is soon upon us, and as anyone who has survived a few of these will know, there are a few survival tips for the newbros out there to make sure they don’t go broke buying games.
Every day a collection of games are advertised as “Daily Deals” and often have very large price cuts associated with them (usually in the region of 75-90% off). Additionally, every 8 hours a set of games get put up as “Flash Sales” with similar pricing to the Daily Deals. Finally there are “Community Choice” sales, in which the community is given a choice of three games, and votes for which one it wants to receive the largest discount. In order to save the maximum amount of money you should always refer to the below infographic before making a purchase.
If you miss out on a deal over the course of the sale, there is usually an “Encore Sale” on the last day, in which the most popular deals from throughout the sale are offered up again. The Steam Sale offers gamers with wallets of the thinner persuasion a great opportunity to buy a large collection of great games for a cheap price.
