Either way, just watching my Steam activity feed, among a small group of maybe 5 of my friends, we have purchased close to 50 games already.

still lost sales. There's a reason why the dates were intended to be confidential. This impacts indie devs more than the AAA titles since their product is "cheap" already.

Take Rogue Legacy, for example. I'm sure there would be many more $14 sales if the dates had not been made known.

Yes, there is...but it's a marketing reason, not a "deferred sale" reason. It's not like it's a secret that Steam has sales at Black Friday, and bigger ones in the Summer and Xmas seasons. They do it every year...the cartoon a page or two back puts the truth to this, everyone already *knows* these sales are imminent.

I had to purchase Skyrim for $7.49. I played it on 360 when it released for about 200 hours and then I haven't touched it since. It will be nice to play it on PC. This will give me something to do when I don't feel like playing Battlefield 4.
