Has Steam become more expensive - i.e., less discounts?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

- over the years my observation is, that my wishlist items are rarely discounted. From what I remember there were way more discounts on my wishlist years ago.

- Also, when there's those crazy discount times (Helloween sales etc.), the old stuff is heavily discounted, but half way new stuff is discounted only very lightly.

- EUR 39 was more or less the max. price for bigger titles, now it's 49 or 59.

 

Do you observe the same or are my detectors broken?

 

Thx

I'm afraid no, they are not broken. 60$ more or less became standard for AAA tittles (whatever that is supposed to mean anymore) around 2010/2011 with the likes of CoD Modern Warfare 2 and Battlefield 3. Shortly after, that somehow translated into 60€.

At first, only retail stores bumped the base 40€ price up about 5 to 10€ but around 2013, when current gen consoles hit the market, digital stores like Steam set the prices to 60€ and now it's like that everywhere for tittles made in North America. EU tittles are often still 40 to 50€ on Steam.
