The 2013 Steam Summer Sale Has Begun!

Posted on July 11, 2013 by Les Major

It’s official! After a heavy load of visitors brought the store to a halt, it’s now somewhat working with occasional heavy load messages. Today’s big sale? Bioshock Infinite at 50% off! Scribblenauts Unlimited, which we’ve reviewed and we’re very much fans of is on for a meer $4.99! Current flash sales include Counter Strike: Global Offense for just over $5, Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Edition for $8.99 (A fantastic game if you haven’t already gotten into it), GRID 2 and Skyrim: Legendary Edition top out the current sales featured every eight hours.

Things do seem a bit rough, even for the wishlist page, so at current time you may want to specifically go to the Steam page of games you’re curious about to confirm if they’re on sale or not. I know I’m eagerly checking my list.

Steam has also introduced a large focus on the recent addition of trading cards to the site. They’re virtual cards that apparently can be crafted into Steam badges. These in turn give you marketable items such as emoticons, profile backgrounds, and coupons. Cards can even be dropped in games such as Borderlands 2 it seems.

Not to be outdone by Sony’s own online sale, Microsoft has revealed their roster of discounted games for July ’13. Headlining all of this is a massive one day sale on some of 2012’s best games including Far Cry 3,  Max Payne 3, Borderlands 2 and Assassins Creed III. Considering the most expensive of these is $20, and several of them are priced at just $10 – be prepared to empty your wallet. The Bioware games are worth the price of entry alone, you’re guaranteed to get at least a few dozen hours out of them!

If you’re looking to save on some older games on the cheap Dragon Age Origins, Mass Effect and Prey are all $5, along with some other vintage 360 titles.
