Steam will refund nearly any online purchase within two weeks


| 12hrs ago

Used to be that if you purchased and downloaded a game from Steam, and it didn't work out for whatever reason, you'd generally be SOL. However, Valve has recently reversed its zero tolerance return policy and will issue refunds for online purchases (with a few caveats) through Steam Support. According to the newly established Steam Refunds page, "You can request a refund for nearly any purchase on Steam — for any reason." That's just so long as you've played the game for less than two hours and request the refund within two weeks of buying it. DLC content has a similar two-hour window while in-app purchases will be refundable for a full 48 hours. There are a few niggling exceptions to that rule -- movies and games you've been banned in, for example, are not eligible -- so head over to the refunds page if you have specific questions about your purchase.

General : First Steam Machines to Arrive This Fall

Posted Jun 04, 2015

Valve has announced that the Alienware and CyberPower Steam Machines will be in pre-order customers' hands in October and on store shelves in November.
Quote:
Steam Machines are similar to consoles but can play all Steam PC titles with Linux compatibility as well.
Prices for the unit itself run anywhere from about $450 to $750. Polygon has a nice wrap up of what is included in each individual package.
Will you be getting a Steam Machine at launch, or will you wait until later? Leave us your thoughts in the comments.

I looked into the steam machines...but ended up not pre ordering. I just don't see the point. For the amount of money you would need to spend on one to play games at max settings you can just buy a regular PC for less money and play on ultra.

Valve starts handing out HTC's VR headset to developers


| June 6th 2015 at 4:59 pm

If you're one of the fortunate few software developers to have scored HTC's Vive virtual reality headset, you'll want to keep an eye out for a delivery truck in the near future. Valve has confirmed that it's shipping the Vive Developer Edition to a "wide range" of teams, ranging from indie game studios to big-name movie producers. It's not clear how many got their VR headgear, although Owlchemy Labs' Devin Reimer has revealed that he's on the short list. You'll still have to wait until the end of the year to snag a Vive if you're a regular gamer, unfortunately. Still, the developer release at least suggests that the public launch is on track.

Deals: Alienware Alpha drops to $399 & GameStop’s classic B2G1 is back. July 2, 2015 . 3:29pm

A huge gaming PC sale is live at Best Buy making the Alienware Alpha the price of an 8th generation console and the return of GameStop’s “Buy 2, Get 1 Free”.

Quote:


Did you ever think you could find a gaming PC for $399.99? It’s happening with the base config Alienware Alpha at its lowest price ever this week in Best Buy’s “All Gaming PCs on sale” … sale. They’ve actually got hundreds of gaming capable laptops and desktops at discount, with probably the most noteworthy deal being the aforementioned Alpha for basically the price of an 8th generation console. As for the other PCs, yeah, you’re probably still better off building your own high-end machine from scratch, but the discounts make starting out with something basic and upgrading later a compelling value proposition.

Console gamers are getting a great weekend for cheap pre-owned titles at GameStop. Starting today and through July 4th, GameStop’s holding a “Buy 2, Get 1 Free” sale on ALL pre-owned products including systems and games for all available platforms. A good Xbox 360 combo recommendation from the sale is Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, Halo 4, and Gears of War 3, which will only cost you $9.98 for all three.

In addition to group deals, there are a ton of individual standout sales like Far Cry 4 at Best Buy. PC and console gamers alike can take advantage of a drop to only $19.99 – a historic low for all platforms. The deal is valid today only at BB, so you'll have to jump on it fast.

Top Deals

Game deals brought to you by the crew at Dealzon. Disclaimer: sales from certain retailers help support Siliconera.
