Get Computer Games For Cheap Utilizing Digital Distribution

Being a video gamer might not be a particularly cheap hobby. Especially those gamers who are after the newest releases will usually pay around $50 to get their hands on new computer games. However, if you are one of many who don’t mind waiting a little for a latest computer game, this article might be useful to you. I’m going to reveal how to save a lot of money utilizing online distribution services to download computer games directly to your hard drive.Nowadays, digital game distribution is nothing new. Probably all of you have heard of services such as Steam or Games for Windows and many of you have already purchased a game or two from these providers. But maybe not all of you are familiar with regular specials and discounts featured on these sites. All in all, whether you are new to the world of digital distribution or experienced buyer, I recommend you to read on.SteamSteam is arguably the single most popular service for online game distribution on Internet. At the time of writing this article, there are over 1,250 games available on Steam and 30 million active user accounts. It has very modern and user-friendly interface as well as its own software application for purchasing and downloading games.Steam also features regular discounts on computer games which sometimes go down to ten or twenty percent of original game price. And now we are not talking about very old or very bad computer games, but this applies to titles from notable game producers and only a couple of months old. Sometimes you can also get a small discount on preorders. These are usually around 10% off.I would definitely recommend you to check Steam as often as possible and hunt for the titles you plan to purchase. There are often specials during the week as well as on weekend. Not to mention a very special pricing on games during Christmas. I have personally purchased over twenty games on Steam and saved hundreds of dollars and you can too!GOGAnother online distribution service I wanted to mention in this article is GOG. GOG stands for Good Old Games and as you can probably guess this is the right place to get those old classics that you always wanted to play, but wasn’t able to purchase in your local game store. Fallout, Baldur’s Gate or Duke Nukem 3D – all those games are here and waiting for you. The price tag is usually around five or ten dollars and there are various specials where you can save up to 75% and get your game literally for pennies.To sum it up, I must say that nowadays I purchase a computer game in a classic shop very rarely. Digital distribution is so much better for me because game is delivered very quickly, straight to my computer and for the best price possible. Give it a try and you will find yourself never looking back.
