Steam’s Black Friday Sale will begin from November 23


Sony and Microsoft aren't the only ones with digital deals for PS4 and Xbox One games respectively. The biggest digital storefront for PC games, Steam will have a Black Friday deal as well.

As indicated by Paypal Poland's Facebook page (found by means of Reddit), the current year's rebates will start on November 23 and end on November 29. There's no clue concerning what will be reduced or the correct time it starts. But if we go by last year’s sale, safe to state you can anticipate that rebates will start from 10am PST on November 23 (11:30pm IST) and last as far as possible up to 10am PST on November 29 (11:30pm IST).

Last year’s Steam Black Friday Sale was a landmark occasion. Reason being, Valve ensured there was one price for a game through the entire sale rather than having a discounted price followed by a flash sale or a daily deal which drove it down even further.

“In past sale events, we've asked for two discounts–a duration discount that runs for the length of the sale, and a feature discount that runs in the event that a game is featured on the front page. This year, to optimise the sale for customers and to allow us to feature and recommend your products in more ways to more customers, we're asking for just one discount, to run the length of the sale,” a post on the Steamworks Developers group read at the time.

“We'll still be highlighting top games on the front page for 24-48 hour spans, but those products will stay at their most competitive discount, before and after being featured. It's not a major change, but it does make the sale a lot more valuable for customers, and it allows us to build sale tools that highlight and recommend products all sale long, instead of just during front page features.”

Keep in mind that Steam isn’t usually the cheapest either. This holds true for games from publishers like Electronic Arts and Ubisoft who have their own digital distribution services. Also, if you can’t pick up anything during the current sale, don’t worry. There will be a Winter sale as well which should take place from December 22 to January 1.
