Having become famous for selling games at can't-go-wrong prices, Steam has dropped Call of Duty 4 to $39.99, Mirror's Edge to $19.99, BattleForge to $29.99, and more! I'll be getting Mirror's Edge purely to check out the graphics that seem to really have people going. So far Steam has not posted an ending date on any of the (above) prices, which would make it apparent that these are new low prices and not just sales.
Obviously Steam has some major influence behind PC Gaming, considering that Left 4 Dead sales went up by 3000% when they halved the price the first time, and also that Unreal Tournament 3's simultaneous online players increased by a whopping 2000%. What does this mean? It seems that the price-point on games is way off, primarily from the over-packaged bulletproof boxes that games come in these days - hopefully publishers will learn from these successful sales and drop the average price by $10... but I'm doubtful.
The graphics are pretty impressive. We've uploaded the HD gameplay trailer as well, viewable below. While the game has been out for a while now, the $30 drop in price is huge, and certainly worth considering.
See you on the battlefield,
