London 2012: The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games

Daily Deal 50% off?!
I know the game is recent, but I think it's a special case or should be with these types of game. The event is over and everyone rapidly loses interest. A bigger discount would have brought more sales I think.

I agree, 75% or at least 66% discount is needed...

I was thinking that exact same thing. From all I hear the game is isnt that great anyway and its over.
Should be 75% off or better.

It's also a game where you primarily mash buttons for 30-60 seconds at a time. It not being that would have helped it to have a wider appeal even at 50% off.

Honestly, the only people who are even going to buy this game are those who are die hard olympic fans, or people with way to much money. In both cases, it doesn't really matter how good the discount is; the people who would ever buy this game have already bought it and are done with it. A majority of the people who havent bought this game yet, wouldn't have even bought it if it was only $5 (well maybe acheivement hunters if the achievements are easy...)

Only actually entered the hub to see what people were saying about it; was hoping for some good laughs.

I agree. I also think a demo would have been appropriate so you can have an idea of what you are getting yourself into.

Yeah I have to agree that they should have made the discount at least 66%. But the graphics don't seem too bad and I have heard it's less about button mashing compared to similar games, so 50% enough for me to think about it.

It's apparently been developed by the aussie SEGA team as well; if that is indeed true, then that alone almost makes me buy it because I know how bad it is for developers in this country as of late......

Considering Amazon have been selling it at this price since the day it came out, its high time steam dropped the price. It's not about bashing buttons to collect thumb blisters, its about well timed button pressses. Its a crap import in that the makers didn't bother to adapt the controls to suit pc. You use the same layout as xbox.

i thought the controls were pretty crappy for PC on this one

75% off is still not good enough. I'd pay no more than 4 bucks for this. Terraria was 4 bucks. AND worth every cent. All the very nice graphics for a rather casual game which has no replayability.
Maybe for the next one, they follow the example of football games, and create a career mode, on which you must train hard and succeed in other small competitions before going the olympics. Then I'd consider buying it at 22USD after playing the demo.

I wouldn't even pirate it...

If there was a demo of even 2 events with online play ,i bet you guys would love it.I agree though the price is way too steep,will be a bargain at £10 or so.

Seriously, I mean why can't this go on sale already! Do we have to wait for the next olypmics? TIS BS

I wanna play but not for that price

I will buy this game if it becomes discounted, not because I'm tight, but because it simply isnt worth $44.95 AUS, retail stores didn't sell many copies of console or PC versions before, during, or after the Olympic Games. That certainly isnt going to change, please discount soon and watch the sales increase, your dedicated steam fans deserve it.
