The Steam Summer Sale kicked off yesterday with deals on thousands of PC games. Now, it looks like Newegg is trying to steal some of Steam’s thunder with its own sale of digital PC games. Hundreds of games are on sale at Newegg – many of which are Steam codes – and a bunch of them have actually beaten the deals on offer in the summer sale. We’ve compared the prices of Newegg’s featured game offerings to Steam’s offerings and have rounded up some of the games that you are better off buying from Newegg below.
Let’s start with a pair of action RPGs released earlier this year. Nier Replicant, the wonderful remaster and cult hit upgrade from 2010, is on sale for $ 40 at Newegg ($ 45 on Steam). This is the best price we have ever seen for Nier Replicant. Newegg also happens to have Persona 5 Strikers for its lowest price at $ 32 ($ 40.19 on Steam). Persona 5 Strikers is a gripping spin-off featuring action-packed Dynasty Warriors.
Fans of From Software games shouldn’t miss Team Ninja’s Nioh series. Nioh: Complete edition is $ 12.49 ($ 15 on Steam) and Nioh 2: Complete edition is $ 35 ($ 40 on Steam).
Meanwhile, Newegg has a stellar deal on Yakuza: Like a Dragon’s Legendary Hero Edition, dropping the price from $ 90 to $ 40. The Standard Edition of Like a Dragon costs $ 39 on Steam, so you can get a bunch of in-game bonuses (costume sets, crafting sets, etc.) for just an extra dollar. Alternatively, you can pick up the Standard Edition from Newegg for $ 30. Yakuza fans can also purchase The Yakuza Remastered Collection for $ 21.39 ($ 26.91 on Steam).
