Valve Holds Steam Lunar New Year Sale, Makes Changes To Wishlist

When we started planning out the set of improvements to players' Wishlists, we began with the frequent requests we see from the community.

But it's the filters that are most welcome. Unlike in the past, Steam no longer does flash deals - all discounts will be available for the entire length of the sale. Now you can filter items shown on your Wishlist by levels of discount like 50% off or 75% off. There's also the option to see the price of games that are below your Steam Wallet balance, $5, or $10. In addition to a new template, you'll also notice new filters such as the ability to sort games by the percentage of the discount.

Check out the wishlist update by heading over to the Steam Blog's official announcement. Clicking any of those tags will filter your Wishlist to just other titles with that same tag applied. Many have dozens of games in their wishlist, but what if you're only in the mood for an RPG?

It's easier to keep track of Early Access titles now as any game currently in development on the list will reflect whether it's still in Early Access or has transitioned to a full release.

Ronaldo v Neymar? It's Real Madrid v PSG! - Zidane
Recent signing Lassana Diarra is expected to come into the PSG line-up against the club he represented between 2009 and 2012. Defensively, however, he was caught out of position on several occasions, especially during Spurs' 3-1 win at Wembley.

Players frequently add unreleased games to their Wishlist, which is a helpful way to express interest in an upcoming release and be notified when the game releases.

Unreleased games added to the Wishlist will now have a release date noted.

The combination of filters and sort-orders users pick will also automatically save and apply next time the Wishlist is accessed. So for games that offer different purchasing options like a deluxe edition, Steam Wishlist entries will still redirect to that title's store page. Instead of an "Add to Cart" link, you'll see a "View Details" button.

As always, Valve is looking for feedback on the new changes as well as suggestions on new features to add for the user experience.
