New blog type, If you can't tell I'm a huge PC fanboy. While the initial cost of a PC over a system may be higher you save a ton of money over time because the games are cheaper.
This weeks steam deal is a good one. The Ubisoft collection which contains Assassin's Creed 1, Call of Juarez, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, and Farcry 2 all for 13 bucks.
Now lets look at the money you save when you buy it on steam as apposed to the consoles. Now Assassin's Creed 1 is selling for $17.99 on the 360. Already not only have you saved money, but you got other games with it for PC. Lets move to call of Juarez, lowest price is $18.89 on 360, so far you've spent about $35 on the console versions. Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is $19.99 on 360. Far Cry 2 is another $19.23on the 360. Now to add it all up the price of those games would be $76.10 that is before taxes and shipping costs (all prices where taken from amazon.com).
Steam deals are some of the best things to happen for PC gaming. and what makes it better is that they have deals like this ALL the time. I'll post more deals that steam has when they update it.
