i wish amazon would offer some of these cheap games in their downloadable section.

I saw crysis 2 for amazon selling for 29.99 for like a day, but they do have sales, you'll just have to catch them in time because they dont last long.

Why are PC game sales making front page news?

yes, in all fairness, there should be a front page news article about SNES game sales as well. -rolls eyes-

My point being that game deals (regardless of platform) should not be front page.

I believe its good to boost the reputation of the PC, its needs our support. So I welcome this addition.

Yes it should. It is still tech related, and people find it interesting. Not to mention very helpful.

Messed up my own comment; I thought I had hit reply on your second comment.

Fable III is available for Pre-Load today on Steam. The Witcher 2 should also be available sometime today or over the weekend.

Think we could have a list in the future? It's really difficult to skim over the deals when they're all in a paragraph

I agree, lists are cleaner.

I've been suggesting that since they first started this game deal post... I don't know what the heck is taking them so long...

Damn, You Don't Know Jack isn't available in the UK Steam Store. Shame, because I played the PS3 demo a while ago (US account FTW), and it's a bloody hilarious game.
