If you still haven't played this awesome game yet now you have no excuse, it's on sale for just $2 on Steam. An amazing deal, I'm thinking about buying it even though I already own it for Xbox. Just thought I'd pass this along incase any of you guys are interested.

It's a great game. I got it when it originally released.

Geez, that's tempting, but I picked up Beyond Good & Evil for five bucks instead. Personally, I just think it's the better rounded game when it comes down to the actual plot and gameplay. Or simply buy both, they are cheap enough. Makes me a little sad I sold my XBox two years ago.

Bought it. Hope I like it. 
 
Seriously, I bought a game without knowing whether I'll like it or not. Only Steam could do such a thing.

Guh... I so wish I had a way to buy things on steam, it's only £1 for my British account.

Played it when it was free on Gametap.  Still, this deal is too good to pass up.  Sold!

Anyone who hasn't played Psychonauts and gets this is in for a real surprise, its my favorite Tim game period it deserved to sell so much better.

This. I just bought it before I even read the thread. Saw the title on the front page, bought the game, then came back to the thread.
 
 
 
Seriously, guys. $2 might as well be free. I can't even eat lunch for that.

I tried to play that game, and it has such high praise that I thought - surely, I will enjoy this. But each time I tried to play through that game, I lost interest really quick. I don't get why people think its so good. The farthest I got is where you meet the crazy doctor dude or whatever underground (the one you ride the mining cart to) and it never really took off for me.

@Snail: Well, yeah, but that's the extent of what I know. I know it's highly praised, and you can't go wrong for $2.

the TRUTH has been uttered, ladies and gentlemen. two dollars for psychonauts is a hell of a deal, and in no way should it be passed up.

Yeah, I caved too.  $2 is the price of a Big Mac and this will stay with me longer than one of those.  Even if I only play it a couple of hours that's cheaper than even matinee movie prices.   Besides, if I have it in my games list, the likelihood that I will play it is better than my picking it up used somewhere else.

Just bought it because of this thread. Complete impulse lol. Never got around to playing it, now that its only 2$ how can I not. That's like an entire game for the same price as a single DLC song in Rock Band lol.

I had Psychonauts for the original X-Box. 
But then i sold the system, including all the games. 
This is a wonderful opportunity to experience it once more.

Yeah, they need to put Beyond Good & Evil on sale for $2 next.  Too bad, they can't offer us Ico.  And, I thought only mothers knew how to exploit our guilt.  Steam has learned a few things I guess.

I've been on the fence about this game, and as soon as I saw this post I jumped to steam and bought it.  I didn't even open the thread until after I started installing it, lol.  Thanks for the tip man!

I jumped on this the second I saw it. It'll probably be some time still before I have the chance to play it, though.

Highly doubt my computer will run it, but it two dollars!  What's Steam's Policy on downloading a game you already bought?  As in, if you buy it on Xbox Live, you can download it however many times you need, but if it's not on the system you first downloaded it to, you need to be logged in to play it.

Get it if you have never played this game before. Probably one of the best presented games as the game play can be a little janky at times, but everything else that makes up the game is amazing and I could not stop playing till it was beaten. Plus 2 DOLLARS!!!!!

I felt that this, along with Beyond Good & Evil were extrodinarily overrated.  They're good games, but because of their poor sales, many people have hyped them to Godly status.  If they had sold well back when they were released..  they definitely wouldn't be recieving so much attention.
 
But again, good games, definitely worth checking out and impossible to pass up for £1.

Psychonauts was such a good game, it almost makes me sad to see it for $2. But at least now others can enjoy it. :)

@WitchHunter_Z: umm paypal? Or if you get off the internet once in a while, you find out that VISA now does a gift card. Works just like a credit card, put its prepaid. You just pop down to your bank/post office/choice of vendor, and grab yourself one of those badboys.
 
But I mean you already know this right? Like you could have easily googled a multitude of things to find this out, and instead you were here... giving a lame excuse for not buying Psychonauts. For shame.
 
@iam3green: For 2 bucks mate, your talking less financial risk than trying a new brand of soda. Take a risk.
