    Just like nearly every other retailer on the planet, Steam is holding a sale this Thanksgiving week, discounting thousands of games, and even some hardware. Games such as Cities Skylines, Fallout 4, and DOOM 2016 are marked down significantly, while games that released this year, like Code Vein, Gears of War 5, and Rage 2 are on sale as well. In total, there are more than 13,000 games to choose from in Steam's Autumn Sale, including a steep price drop on the Steam Controller, which is currently available in low quantities for $5. The Steam sale will last from today, until December 3rd.

    remember that you still have to pay shipping for the steam controller, which in most cases is more than the controller itself

    Was going to get a Steam controller just to try it. £4 for the controller, but £7.50 for postage. So passed on it.

    If it's any consolation, you can get multiple of them at that price without paying the shipping again. So if you wanted some extra for a friend or were sneaky and tried to sell them off, you can get them £4 each as long as you pay the shipping for the bulk order. Pretty nice if you ask me, though I guess it depends on what you wanted one for.

    I just wanted one to see what they are like. At £4 + something reasonable for postage, cheap enough to try and if I don't like, leave in a draw. Already have plenty of controllers, so was just a "cheap enough to try it out" thing. Didn't expect postage to be that much either. Not sure why Valve are using such an expensive service for it. Royal mail 1st class recorded covered up to £50 is £4.50 or so, but Valve are coming in with £7.50 to send a controller.

    According to their FAQ it seems it's coming from elsewhere in the EU (As opposed to inside the UK itself) so I guess thats it's a bit more. Sucks though, makes the prices misleading.
    I got one anyway since I had my eye on them for a long time and for £11 I figured it'd be worth the risk. Will be nice to see what it's like when it shows up.

    Hopefully there’s some decent VR games on deep discount, thinking of picking up a Rift S which is on discount.

    how do you do this?
    edit: seems like you can't. buying some other physical item allows you to change quantity, but not for steam controller.

    why
    controller is a nice discount, too bad i don't live in one of the 3 countries that maybe sometimes probably has the priviledge of buying hardware directly from steam

    "Available in low/limited quantity" is such a weasel phrase, the "quantity" always turns out to be in the neighbourhood of "one single unit" but they still get to claim it was on sale :rolleyes:

    At least with Steam, you keep the games on your HDD, can't say the same with cloud gaming BS
