Why must "elitists" compare Steam Summer sales to XBL/ PSN sales?

This. I have no intention on PC gaming anytime soon, and I'm not foolish enough to believe otherwise.

At least for us in Latin America, paying U$ 7 for Far Cry 3 for my PC (e.g.) is much Better than paying U$ 29,90 for it on my PSN. Some games go from U$ 3 on Steam to U$ 49,90 on PSN.

Case closed. When Sony and Microsoft start offering 50% off nearly everything, with flash sales of up to 90% off, then Steam Sales will be better. Even though Steam is the top service on the PC, they still have amazing sales. Sony and Microsoft could do the same, but they choose not to.

GOG also has some great sales, and sometimes GMG also does some good sales. Whilst they might not have the same selection that Steam does (mainly GMG since GOG specialises in older games), they still have better sales than Sony or Microsoft. Hell, even EA has better sales than Sony/Microsoft.

A sale is a sale. They can be compared and Sony/Microsoft just insults their customers by not giving the same value as the ones you get on PC.

Over 8,000,000 players on Steam at the same time.
PC gaming is the place to be. The only way to play games at their true potential.

Why shouldn't they? If the PS4 and X1 want to go digital, they have to challenge the best service, which is Steam

Some people need to realize that Steam actually does have WAY better deals. Look at Thief right now on Deals with Gold, it's going for 35$ right now. It was on sale on Steam for $14.99. Less than half of your "deal".

But while you're at it, link me to a page where I can download the entire Borderlands 2 collection on a console for $10. Or the following:

Batman: Arkham Origins $7.50
Bioshock Infinite $7.49
Far Cry 3 $7.49
The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim $4.99
Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition $4.99
Metro: Last Light $6.79
Tomb Raider $4.99
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons $2.99
Dishonored - $4.99


...just to name a few.

Some may be "older games", but don't assume that people pay for them just because they're cheap and never play them. You'll never be able to find those games for that cheap on consoles. Deal with it. Or be a blind fanboy. Your choice.


It's like people can't agree or else.

I only have interest in Skyrim from that entire list and the only game I kind of like from that list.

Still the way you talk about it does say a lot.

Was the personal insult necessary? I guess just because you don't like certain games that are heavily discounted, that means everyone who does buy them hates them as well but just purchases them because they are cheap. Thanks for enlightening me.

My pc eats the pc's of the majority of those schmucks that do that 'peasant/ master race' garbage, and i play xbox one and 360 more. Xbox has better exclusives first and gets a lot of games that pc will never see just because its a console.

That's not to say that steam sales arent awesome (as origin, uplay, amazon and gamestop sales can be, and often are, too) but the 'superior' myths proported by the pc community arent all that different from those proported by any group of people that likes to pretend the things they believe are head and shoulders above every one else's preferences because x, y and z. Steams just their best example, probably followed by modding and 'trainers patches' (think oldschool konami cheats for EVERYTHING.)

Anyway, for as great as those things really are, if you know anything at all about building a computer, you learn very quickly that 95% of the pc community is full of empty, hipster jackasses that WISH they knew their ass from a hole in the ground, so they MIGHT be wanna-be's one day. Seriously.

Theyre no different than the ps4 kids that come here trying to convince us that theyre not bored out of their minds with their purchase that 'has all this stuff' but nothing they really want to play.

And, since i'm ranting and think it needs to be said, the pc exclusives that 'outnumber' console exclusives 100 to 1 that we hear about every now and then are more 'bob's 8bit ant maze' than they are halo or gears, too.

So yeah, go forth and refuse to buy into their master race crap! The game time spent fighting dll errors and updating drivers has made our pc counterparts bitter and delusional, my console brothers : )


Your PC is mid ranged, a 770? lol
