With the Humble Bundle and big GOG.com sales going on, we all knew that the Steam Sale was just around the corner.
After all, this is Black Friday week. PayPal did us all a favour by leaking the exact date in an email telling its customers to start stocking up on Steam credit with, of course, PayPal.
VG247 was nice enough to share the PayPal email and the date - 26 November. It's time to hoard more cheap instant ramen just to get another game.
To wait or not to wait?
Of course that means that from now until the great Steam sale that'll wipe your digital wallet clean on 26 November, hold on to your urges to pick up any sweet game deals. Are Steam sales worth the wait? Usually, especially if you've been waiting for a specific title.
Some games, though, are Origin-exclusives so you won't find them on Steam. Origin is apparently also going to have its own sales pretty soon so if the gaming platform has things you want then maybe hold off buying games on Steam.
What sucks for Asian buyers though is that PayPal is no longer an accepted payment option and you end up having to get eClub credit instead. What is also sadly missing: the former discounts on game titles that made (for a short time) buying games on Steam cheaper all the time, and not just during sales.
As always, remember to wait for flash sales and that the older and more popular the game, the higher the possibility of steep discounts. May the ramen be with you!
