It’s that time of year again: when digital distribution companies declare war on your wallet.
Basically, this is the time of year when all the digital distribution platforms offer dirt-cheap prices on many games both old and new. If you’re a gamer on a tight budget, this is your Boxing Day, except you don’t have to wait in line or fight off an old lady for a toaster oven. The deals change every day, so if you see something you like, get it now.
The Steam Holiday Sale is probably the biggest one out there. Right now you can get Portal 2 for $13, or the entire Telltale Sam & Max series for 75% off. Not to be outdone, Good Old Games currently has 50% off most of their titles, so if you want some awesome older games for cheap, head over there.
So, how fast will Steam’s servers crash due to the massive amount of downloading? I’m betting on about ten minutes.
