Just wanna let you guys of Valve/Steam know that there is a little bug in the todays sale:


Allthough the Gothic Bundle for 1,99 is available here in the german store it isnt beeing displayed on the front page, which is kinda confusing .... just asking for a fix. ;-)

No Gothic deal on the frontpage here, we get Half-Life 1 instead. (Netherlands) The pack is available for €0,99 though.

But it works, I just bought the Gothic Pack which includes Gothic 2 Gold and Gothic 3. It costs just 50 cents more than Gothic 3. :D

Just found out about the bundle, I went to the US store page to see what I'm missing in the Land of Unavailability, (Yes, Rockstar, I'm looking at YOU) and noticed the Gothic bundle...
I then checked it manually through Steam, and yep, the bundle IS on sale, just not shown on the frontpage for some obscure reason.

(I still got it, hehe)

Nerp!

It seems to me that they just pulled a "The Witcher" pricing change on us again. I refreshed the page and the game is now 3$ more than it was before. How can they get away with this? I'm not being stingy but set a price and keep a price for our sake.

Yep its gone up 3 here aswell. Pretty frustrating its not so much the price but the principle.

Is this intentional, I mean, you buy the game dirt cheap, your friends see this and buy it some time later at a worse price reduction.

[Edit:] Which equals attention and profit for an otherwise obscure title ;)

Or maybe they made a mistake in setting the percentage? Principle may be applied to Witcher, but its ridiculous for Gothic 3 and the 1C Pack.

You don't accidentally confuse 90% for 75%.

It's pretty hard to mistype "75" as "90". In fact, it's almost impossible, considering the fact that you need to use both hands for 75 and only one hand for 90.

Are you suggesting then they raised the price on purpose? They also managed to mistakenly put the 1C pack at 66% off when it was meant to be 0% off. I mean its even harder to type something when there should have been nothing?

Mistakes happen and this is the most likely explanation. Saying Valve did it on purpose is ludicrous.

...They did raise the price on purpose. Are you, suggesting they didn't? It just accidentally went from 90% to 75%? :confused:

I'm suggesting they accidently lowered the price to 90% when in fact it should of been 75%.

What others are insinuating is the sale should of been at 90% and Valve increased the price to 75%.

It's 4.99€ currently. It says the sale lasts 24h, but it doesn't say exactly when it ends. Is there any way I can find out? I can't buy it right now and I wouldn't want to miss this offer.

Because support will tell you an automated system is to blame and not human error.

It was meant to be 5e/5$ since beginning (even "news" site was saying -75%). -90% was just system error and they fixed it, so stop complaining - ur too late.

Yeah but support makes it sound like it was set at a higher discount and automatically reduced later on purpose. If it's an accident, just sack up and admit it was a mistake.

f you can read this, dont buy Gothic today
They put the game at 2€ both of them, but as they were selling very good, they though on put the game a lot expensiver, more than a 100% to gain more money. A totally unfair movement to their customers.

They are saying it was a mistake, but the real mistake is them trying to be greedy with people.

Point the finger at the publisher - they always decide the price on Steam.

They made a mistake with HL today and lowered the price a while later.

Personally, I don't see anything to indicate that the 90% off was anything other than a mistake. It wouldn't be the first goof I've seen during this sale; on day 3 (I think), at about 1:03 PM EST, a few minutes after the deals changed, I saw Half Life on the mainpage under the countdown clock, but then about 15 minutes or so later it was gone, with Left 4 Dead 2 in its stead. The next day, what do you know, Half Life is on sale (at a bigger discount than what it appeared as yesterday). I'm just gonna go with 'it was always supposed to be 75% off, someone at Steam messed up at posted it at 90% off, then it got fixed a few hours later.'

75% off is still a great deal. Yes, it would have been nice to take advantage of it when it was 90% off, but are you going to pass up 75% off because of what it could have been? (Excluding of course those who can spend $1.99 but literally can't afford $4.99)

I love conspiracy theories.

I hate them. We DID land on the moon gosh darn it!

Mhhhh .... I would say its more due to some wierd kind of lag, because of almost everyone clicking the "page reload" button of his browser at that very moment ... this 90/75% thing must be some technical issue as well, havent seen the Update News Popup today (havent played any game, ENG vs GER was more important ^^) but the guys i talked to meant that the Gothic Bundle was advertised with -75%, so that 90% is just another funny bug on a long and glory list of entertaining failures powered by Steam, people should show some manners and see over it, when you put sth. big as this Summer Sale up (that sometimes push the Steam servers at their limit) these weird kind of things just might happen, no big deal. And to be honest: 5€ or 2€, both are ridicioulusly good deals for such 2 great games.


But back at the initially point of this thread: It still hasnt been fixed, yay. No Gothic Bundle advertised as daily offer on the front page for us bloody germans. :D

Same here, I got it because of a popup when I finished playing another game that said it was on sale.

Also, max payne doesn't appear for me either.
