Adjust Comment Print

Even if you don't feel like loading up on cheap Steam games right now, it's worth popping over to the Lunar New Year Sale to see some cute dogs. Unlike in the past, Steam no longer does flash deals - all discounts will be available for the entire length of the sale.

If you are holding off on buying any games and saving your cash for the next Steam Sale, then we have good news for you. Is there anything you are hoping to grab in the Steam sale today? Now you can filter items shown on your Wishlist by levels of discount like 50% off or 75% off. In addition to a new template, you'll also notice new filters such as the ability to sort games by the percentage of the discount. There's also the option to see the price of games that are below your Steam Wallet balance, $5, or $10. Once applied, a wishlist filter will remain in effect until manually disabled.

Qualcomm's X24 Modem Pushes 4G LTE to 2Gbps
We will see phones with both the X50 5G modem and X24 LTE modem for a few years until 5G is ubiquitous. Still, the launch of this modem serves to blur the line between 4G LTE and 5G.

Below are some specific deals and you can visit the Steam Store to see the full list of now discounted titles.

Note: The combination of filters and sort-orders that you pick will automatically save and apply when you visit your Wishlist again in the future. You simply need to click one of the tags displayed next to a game to hide titles that don't share that tag. It's now possible to add a game to your basket directly from the list, without having to leap around to the store page first. The above changes are now live on Steam, and it sounds like Valve will be making further improvements as it receives more feedback on the new-look wishlists.
