Steam Bundles Pricing To Be Changed; Will Cost Less if You Own a Game

Steam bundles pricing

Conventionally, we have had to take it or leave it when it comes to game bundles. We don’t get to say that we have got some of the games which we do not wish to purchase again and that has been of concern to a lot of people. Steam Bundles pricing is being changed to help fix that issue.

While we don’t know about the rest of them, Valve is at least talking to developers about a new policy under which a user will only be charged for the games that he does not have while buying a given bundle.

In simple words, if you are a buying a collection of games in a given series, and you already own the first game, the price of the bundle will be reduced for you by deduction that game and its price from it.

A document has been floated by Valve among the developers to discuss the new Steam Bundles pricing policy which reads:

With Steam Bundles, if a customer already [owns] some items in the Bundle, they will pay for and receive only the items not already in their account. This allows the best fans of your series or franchise to ‘complete the set’ and get a deal on the remaining items in the Bundle.

They gave the example of Complete Packs calling the old pricing system to have a bad economic sense or simply being a negative impression on the customers.

Are you going to be purchasing more if the Steam Bundles pricing is reduced as Valve is currently discussing?

Thanks, PCGamesN.
