Microsoft Copying Steam With Sales?

  1. Not sure if anyone's noticed but Xbox Live has had some really impressive one day only deals going on recently. I just got back from work and discovered Tekken Tag Tournament 2 for £11.99 and Max Payne 3 for an incredible £4.49!

    Thank you very much Microsoft.
  2. It needs to happen. Console game prices are way too high. It's one of the main reasons I mostly game on PC. No way I'm paying $60 per game. And even after they've been out for years console games are often still $30.
  3. Actually I don't think Steam was King of sales this year. Amazon, Gamefly, and Green Man Gaming probably topped Steam for best sales. So really Microsoft has a bit more competition than just Steam. I've been really impressed with Green Man Gaming. They launched in 2010 and since then have become a top game seller.
  4. I got all of my launch games from gmg last year. all of my super discounted older games were from amazon and steam. valve definitely has some competition now.
  5. I don't even have a GMG account. I'll check it out.
  6. It seems like most the digital games they sell can be activated on steam so that's another bonus for some people.
