BTW, the interesting part is you might think everyone who wanted skyrim would have jumped on it at the 50% off sale, but there's STILL demand for it at full price.
Thats the thing Valve and others pointed out several times now.

Sales do NOT devalue a game.
Instead sales even increase the number of units sold for normal price AFTER the sale has ended.

I ended up picking up Civ V on the steam sale. I never would have bought it at full price because I just really wasn't that interested. But at $6 or whatever it was, I thought, ya, I'll give it a shot. Now I'm really enjoying it and will pick up Gods and Kings at the full price. Two sales they would not have had without the summer discount.
