Steam Purchases?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I loved the Ubisoft week last week. However, I am new to Steam, and would like to purchase a few more games. I am very interested in BF:BC2 as well as a few others.

I loved the Ubisoft week last week, but keep hearing of a "Summer sale". When should it be, and what does it consist of?

Should I just buy BC2 now, or wait for a sale?

Steam sales aren't really announced ahead of time, so you never really know when they're going to happen, but there are certain times when they usually do have sales. How much is BC2 currently?

the Steam summer sale is usually a week (or is it month long?) where they have awesome deals on a ton of games. I'd say wait until there is a sale, because there is always a sale of some sort. It usually takes place in either June or July

BC2 is currently 20$ but if it does go on sale, it'll be around 15$ or possibly lower if it's a blow out or whatever

so your choice if saving 5$ or close to it is worth waiting, it's a decent game

I got BC2 on sale for I think $8 or so. I would still pay $20 for it, but if you can be patient, I would say wait. Buy The Orange Box and keep yourself occupied with it until the summer sales.

BC2 is worth the price it is at just now. If you have plenty of free time you'll definitely find it worth it. On the other hand, you'll definitely save yourself $10 if you wait. If you have other games to keep you busy in the mean-time then you may as well wait...

Wait for a sale, Battlefield 3 is out soon.

As stated, the best times for Steam are the summer and Christmas sales.
Shouldn't be too far off now..

Also, it is indeed worth the normal retail price.
Quite a fun game.

The Bad Company 2 download is pretty much always on sale somewhere for around 8 bucks. It's 7.98 on both Amazon and Direct2Drive right now. It'll most likely drop to 7.50 or 5.00 on Steam during the summer sale when it happens.

I like Steam, but it isn't worth a 12 buck price difference on a game.
