2/7/11 Update: Steam Summer Camp Sale is on, with various games on sale throughout the promotion period (30 June – 10 July) and different, additional deals available each day. There’s some pretty cheap stuff here (all prices in US$):
Day 1: Borderlands Game of the Year Edition at $7.50, down from $29.99; The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of the Year Edition at $6.80, down from $19.99 plus the Deluxe version at $8.50, down from $24.99. The rest aren’t as cheap but still down by 33% or more: The Witcher 2, Medal of Honor, Operation Flashpoint: Red River etc.
Day 2: Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Star Wars Battlefront II at $2.49 each, down from $9.99; Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II at $9.99, down from $19.99; Devil May Cry 4 at $9.99, down from $19.99; Just Cause games (Just Cause, Just Cause 2 and Just Cause 2 DLCs) down by 75%, which translates to $3.74/$4.99 for the main games and 24-49 cents for the DLCs; 5 Grand Theft Auto classics (up to San Andreas) at $7.49, down from $29.99. Braid at $2.49, down from $9.99.
I normally save this for the Sunday roundup, but this needs to be up like, now: Street Fighter IV Volt (iPhone/iPod Touch) is out now for $0.99, and every day the price will increase by $1 until it reaches $6.99, so this is pretty much the best time to get it (there may be a sale in the future, but $0.99 is probably the lowest it gets), especially if you haven’t gotten the first game. If you have… What’s new: online multiplayer; Balrog, Vega and Cody are now playable. And while I’m at it…
Pocket Academy, the latest game from Kairosoft, is out for $3.99. No mention if this is discounted at launch, but Hot Springs Story was $3.99 before going up to $4.99 about a month later. Although it did drop and rise again subsequently. Either way, if you’re a Kairosoft fan you’ll definitely get this, right? If you’re not, there’s a Lite version for you to try out first. Also, Game Dev Story is on sale for $1.99.
