Steam Summer Sale Confirmed

The annual summer sale on Steam has become a significant enough event that there have been murmurs of concern from the gaming community because Valve hasn't been talking about it. A post to the Steam Users' Forums by Valve's Mike Blaszczak should offer the necessary reassurance: "We are planning a sale sometime this summer. Hope that helps!" Thanks VG247 via GameTrailers.

Actually EA is doing exactly that with Amazon game downloads this past week. Some of the EA deals that were scheduled to start on Monday are even being pushed up to today by EA to get the jump on the weekend.

Buy, hey never let something the facts get in the way of an EA rant.
I just checked the Origin store and couldn't see anything on sale. Part of that might be because I'm in the UK but most of it is because the store is incredibly poorly laid out. There's no sales section, an incredibly limited "New Releases" section (lists 7 games with no prices) and virtually every game on the store is from EA. In fact even when they had a previous sale for up to 87.5% off I had to scour multiple sections sorted into no logical order to discover which games were discounted.

It's honestly not worth my time, especially given that Origin has an inferior client to Steam, a poor selection of games and most of them are way, way, way over priced. I mean, 65 / $100 for the special edition of SimCity? I've never seen a game for that much on Steam. Even the regular version if 45 / $70 - again, I've never seen a game cost that much on Steam.

So yeah, EA is still running around like a headless chicken when it comes to operating Origin. They haven't had a single sale that even comes close to what Valve offers. As soon as EA offers a better service, at competitive / better prices, with a competitive / better selection of games and stop insulting gamers at every opportunity then yeah, I'll pay attention. Until then, let the EA bashing continue. Allthumbsup
