Steam Summer Sale 2013 Infographic


If you’re reading this, it means you’re probably still alive and you didn’t sell both kidneys to pay for really cheap games during the Steam Summer Sale. If that’s the case then congratulations; you survived. Your bank balance probably didn’t, but at least you’re still breathing and spending every waking hour playing the games you played before the Summer Sale kicked off; you know, games like DOTA 2 and LoL.

The curious among you may be wondering about the numbers behind Steam’s recent cash harvesting extravaganza. Luckily for you, Redditor Tallkido has put together a very handy infographic. While it doesn’t tell you how much money Steam generated (you’ll probably never know that) it does tell you how many titles went on sale, how many games were featured more than once during community votes and what the lowest and highest priced sale items were.

Another point of interest is how often Valve made errors during the sale. On occasion, games were vastly under-priced due to technical glitches. Some people were lucky enough to snag copies of under-priced games, but most of the time these glitches were fixed pretty rapidly. Then there was the whole Civilization V blunder, which you can check out on the infographic; hit the jump.
