Weekend Deal for Steam - GTA III Anniversary - Weird pricing..

Steam now you are just playing with us...

I think they have done this in the past, not sure if it is intentional, so make sure you buy the complete pack if you are going for the deal.

Ouch its $12.49. Is this USD? In the UK it's only £4.99

Yes, because $12.49 for 7 games is a rip off. It's a terrible deal that no one should ever pay for.

Edit: Also, for all I know, $12.49 might be the same as 5 pounds. Stupid poor economy. (Probably not though. That was a joke.)

That is super weird pricing, also for the UK instead of the difference being 1 dollar its £3.50 which is probably around 5 dollars difference.

9,99e for the Complete Pack, 11,89e for just the GTA4 one.

I'm always on the fence when GTA4 is on sale, I've played all of it on 360 and I'd probably just fart around with the graphics mod and waste 32 gigs of hard drive space.

Hey times are tough but games must be bought. Hopefully that 12 and some change won't BREAK the BANK.

the funny thing is, in Germany there isn't even a deal for the complete GTA collection .... you can get GTA IV complete for 12 € and then 3, VC and SA für 3,79€ each ...still a good deal but in comparison to the UK and US deals it's a rip-off...

My favourite part of this sale is how well GTA4 Complete is selling. I can't for the life of me understand why anyone wouldn't buy the series-complete pack.

Unless they want to pay the $1 fee to keep their Steam games list as small as possible.

This happens all the time on Steam, which is why I'm confused as to why this is all over the internet.
