This year’s Steam summer sale introduced the Steam Grand Prix, a meta-game which gives players the chance to win their “Most Wished For games”. The wording of this competition has caused confusion as many Steam users believed that winners would receive random games from their wishlist. This led to many Steam users removing cheaper games from their wishlist, most notably from independently developed games. As such, many developers and publishers were less than thrilled with this year’s meta-game. Developers receive notifications based on additions and deletions of games to users wishlists. Within hours of the Grand Prix launch, developers watched large amounts of users remove their games from wishlists in nearly real-time. Dan Hindes, developer of the upcoming title, WildFire, tweeted about the situation, showing a graph chronicling wishlist deletions for Wildfire. Thankfully, Valve addressed the furor before it could erupt, and modified the promotion’s guidelines. The new rules now clarify that “if your team makes it to the podium and you are randomly chosen to win something off your Steam Wishlist, then we’ll grant you the top item.” Hopefully, this revision can ward off some of the damage caused by the wishlist purging.
AnotherGills posted a topic in News and general PC gamingSteam Database, a group known for tracking Steam player counts, tweeted about this year’s Steam summer sale, the “Steam Grand Prix Summer Sale”, stating that it will begin today at 10AM PST on June 25th. The information was found on a Chinese Steam Community forum, SteamCN. The forum also included details about a new event for the sale, replacing the Steam Trading Cards typically distributed during sales. SteamCN user Cvisy posted a screenshot pertaining to the Grand Prix event. There is currently no information regarding the purpose of the Grand Prix Boost Meter, nor the correlation between purchases, purchase prices, and Boost Meter points awarded for the purchases. However, if one were to divide 100,899 by 999 (the current USD price for the Valve Index VR Kit), it can be assumed that $1 USD is equivalent to 101 Grand Prix Boost Meter points. Of course, this is merely speculation, and subject to change. What are you looking forward to purchasing during the sale? Do you intend to take advantage of whatever new promotion the Grand Prix entails?
Andytizer posted a topic in News and general PC gamingSteam are planning something new with the Summer Sale 2019, here's the announcement: Steam trading cards have been a staple of the Steam Sale since first introduced in 2013. Valve have always tweaked how sales work and how to keep people engaged over long periods of time. For example Valve introduced a daily/flash sales only to disable them in 2015 - some have speculated that this changed consumer behaviour and actually increased total revenue over the entire sale period. The Steam Summer Sale is rumoured to begin 18:00 British Summer Time on June 25th, 2019 (13:00 ET, 10:00 PT), and will most likely end July 9th, 2019.
