Has any Activision games EVER gone past 50% discount on Steam sales?

Activision is worse than EA. Too bad EA gets all the hate for selling their games at cheaper prices,

COD 4 was on sale for $5 somewhere awhile back, with a Steam key,

And it's selling pretty well. If CoD wasn't so popular, it would barely sell at all. It's not selling all that well right now compared to what it could be. I think this video (start at 6:09) does a good job explaining the advantages of digital platforms like Steam and how they work (ignore the video title):

Activision seems to sell CoD on PC like it's on console.

Deadpool is like $7.99 on Gamefly (steam key included) with discount code.

2 years ago I saw Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 75% off, and I saw Modern Warfare 2 75% off on Amazon last year. Other than that, no, they don't really have good sales. Or even decent ones. Still waiting on Family Guy to go ~75% off.

Blur went on sale for like 75% off, but I dunno if that counts since Activision published it, and the dev of that game died and was assimilated into Sumo Digital. Blur hasn't been available off Steam for quite a while now, since Activision pulled it.

On that note Activision is terrible at keeping non-CoD games maintained. For instance, did you know that Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 and X-Men Legends 2 are both available on PC? I didn't until I googled them. Any sensible publisher which still owned the rights (as shown with the Deadpool game) would get those classics uploaded to Steam for a new generation to enjoy, but I guess Activision scoffed at the idea of spending any money on getting old games uploaded to Steam that aren't called Call of Duty, despite all the people who would imitate Fry and yell "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY" on those classics being uploaded to Steam.

I'm pretty sure they've pulled some other games from Steam, too. I can't think of any right now, but they're certainly horrible when it comes to supporting Steam. I wouldn't be surprised if the next CoD game migrates to ActiBlizzard Battle.Net because no one was buying the series on Steam, and ActiBlizzard turns Battle.Net into the next Origin, with World of Call of Duty as it's flagship title...


It's too bad Blur was delisted on Steam. So was Split Second. I had them both on consoles and wanted to re-buy them on Steam and waited too long.
