    We shall soon see a much larger sale selection, which will lead to a larger dent in wallets sooner or later. At least this way smaller teams might be able to push games, that otherwise go unnoticed and get a bit more of a steady income.

    2 weeks is a long time in the spotlight, so it might be hit or miss how this will turn out. Also means possibly more things rotating in and out of sales, that you might otherwise not be able to catch outside seasonal sales.
