Steam: Massive Summer Sales

Jun. 25, 2010; Channels: Video Games; By Jenner David Cauton

Steam: Massive Summer Sales The good thing with Steam is that it quite often has sales far better than what retail stores would ever get to, let alone afford. Some deals are as high as 80 percent off of select titles, or 75 percent to 50 percent off games that are only a year old. The bad thing is that these sales are often unannounced ahead of time and usually for only a weekend or a single day, so it pays to log in daily. So just a heads up to all Steam users, from June...

Jun. 15, 2010; Channels: Video Games; By Robert F. Ludwick

E3 2010: Sony Keynote Wrap-Up With Microsoft and Nintendo having held their press conferences already, Sony seemed to have its work cut out for itself at its own press conference.
