SteamWatcher - monitor game prices

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just stumbled across this and thought some of you may like it too, considering how prevalent Steam is these days.

You essentially search for whatever game, it will display matches and their current price, you set a threshold, and you're done. It just sits in your system tray and checks prices at whatever interval you choose (4 hours is the default).

Once the price drops below your threshold, it can be configured to send you an email. Seeing as how some sales only last a day or two, this seems pretty handy for AAA titles you don't want to play AAA price for.

With the short testing I did with only one game queued up, it only used 13k of RAM.

(double posting my own thread )

SteamWatch is also a site that will notify you by email if a game goes on sale, but I don't believe you can set a specific threshold.
