Argentina's Steam Store Reveals Ridiculous Discounts This Halloween Sale, Crypto Coins News

AsSteam’s Halloween Sale launched yesterday, the platform went down for over an hour. It’s no wonder as nearly 15 million players across the globe stormed the storefront in search of hefty discounts.

The servers couldn’t handle the load. It’s now par for the course for these types of sales. If Steam didn’t crash, it wouldn’t feel like a genuine sale. Fortunately, the platform stabilized and was up again in no time.


Looking a little closer at what deals Steam has cooked up for the occasion, it appears certain regions get a better deal of it than others. Especially Argentina, wherea newly-elected President is attempting to fix the country’s economic crisis.

Hefty Steam Discounts On AAA Titles

Take, for example, Rockstar Games’ acclaimed crime-sim, Grand Theft Auto V. WhileUS Steam store users benefit from a 50% discountthat brings the price down to $ 14. 99, users in Argentina can pick it up for $ 5. 89. That’s around 60% off the base price in Argentinian pesos.

Another perennial top seller on Steam,The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, is on sale for $ 2. 42 in Argentina, compared to $ 11. 99 the US Store. Both are 70% off in their respective regions.

Staying with the Halloween theme,Steam is flogging RESIDENT EVIL 2 with a 50% discount. That’s $ 10. 35 in Argentina and $ 29. 99 in the US.

And just to hammer home the point,PUBG is selling for 50% off at $ 5. 38in Argentina and $ 14. 99 in the US.

These are some sizable differences in pricing. Of course, we have to factor in regional pricing structures to understand them. Nevertheless, if you’re based in Argentina and you’ve got some cash to spare, it’d be a crime not to make the most of the Halloween Sale and bolster yournewly revamped Steam library.
