Steam Making Changes to Game Bundles

Category: Gaming
Posted: 04:54PM

Game bundles have been a highlight of Steam sales for as long as I can remember, but they have been plagued by one potential negative. When purchasing a bundle, if you owned one or more of the games already in the bundle you wouldn't receive an extra key for that game. Valve has decided to switch things up and going forward bundles will be discounted if you own some of the games in the bundle. Valve described the move to developers stating, "With Steam Bundles, if a customer already [owns] some items in the Bundle, they will pay for and receive only the items not already in their account. This allows the best fans of your series or franchise to 'complete the set' and get a deal on the remaining items in the Bundle." The decision has not been confirmed by Valve yet, but the article noted that some bundles are "already available on some bundles in the wild." Hopefully it will be rolled out to all bundles in time for the next big sale.

Just like GOG in that regard. Own some of the bundle, entire bundle now costs you less.
