Steam sale helping some games big time

By

Valve's epic 'Summer' sale has boosted sales of some games as much as 600%, with the sale still only in its beginning days.

As we previously reported Valve's biannual Steam holiday sale has begun, discounting some PC games by as much as 90%.

One particularly happy developer is Polytron’s Phil Fish, who has taken to Twitter to express joy at his baby Fez selling over 100,000 copies in just two days on Steam.

“We sold more copies in the first 24 hours of the sale than we had on Steam in the first 3 months since release!” said Fish on Twitter.

“And over the course of the full 48 hours, we sold more than we had in our first month on XBLA. It’s been fuckin’ NUTSO.”

Fish even uploaded a sales graph, available here, which shows sales really did skyrocket when the game became discounted.

Gaming news website Joystiq asked Fish via Twitter whether he was still happy with the results in light of the fact that the sales occurred when the game was at half-price.

“Yeah I’m a fan!” he said. “Even I can’t find a way to complain about it.”

Check out the sale for yourself here, and maybe even pick up Fez while you're at it.
