It’s that time again, Sales time! We all know the most important sales for an owner of a PC is when the Steam sale comes around. You load up the page, and suddenly the money just seems to fade away from you as game after game comes along. You notice a bundle, your favourite game series has released a bundle with DLC’s and add-ons galore, but its still going to cost you a pretty large amount even though you own the main bulk of the bundle. This is all set to change though with Steam bundles losing price if you own something in the bundle.
The scale of the discount you’ll receive will changed based on several things including the price of what you own and how many of the items in the bundle you own, this means that you will only be paying the difference between your collection and the bundle. This doesn’t mean that all bundles will work like this, with older bundles (titled Must Purchase Together by Valve) will still exist for things like deluxe editions of games and those with soundtracks included in specific purchases.
Currently the system is only in place for a few bundles, and with an unclear future of when it could be rolled out to every bundle in their library, we just hope it’s done before the next Steam sale.
