What do you guys think? What are the chances of Far Cry 3 going on sale (whether on Steam, Amazon, Green Man Gaming, or some other service) in the next few days?

I'm waiting on the steam sale for it, I just can't justify paying full price after all the holiday spending I did.

I'm really hoping it goes on sale. If not however, I got $150 in cash from various sources for Christmas, so I'll... probably buy it that way if it doesn't end up happening.

If you are UK based you can get it here for £20. I imagine it's the cheapest you'll find it for a while. I bought it on release from there and they seem to do next day delivery for free, which I thought was pretty awesome.

Edit: Actually it seems they ship worldwide, so that's $32.

I would be surprised if Steam had a sale for Far Cry 3. I'd honestly be watching other sources, particularly Greenmangaming, because they have been discounting select games more than Steam, particularly newer releases (Hitman: Absolution).

Far Cry 3 was just on sale over the weekend, so it isn't likely to be on sale until Ubisoft releases their price minimum for other services.

Really? I don't know how I missed that one? How much was it on sale for?

Don't remember the exact discount, something around 30% for the base game. You probably missed it because it was only on sale through Ubisoft directly. Considering Ubisoft's digital distribution stance and UPlay, not sure why you'd look anywhere else first).

If I had to make an educated guess based on previous sale patterns...

...one in a fucking million, man.

Zero, probably. Just before the sale started Far Cry 3 was the best selling game on Steam. Then there is also the fact that the game is less than a month old. You're probably better off hoping Amazon or GMG has a sale for the game that comes with a Steam Key.

slim, it's already been on sale, for a new game.

25-33% off, tops.

Yep, pretty much this and that's only if it does go on sale.
