Weekend game deals: 62% off Portal 2 + The Potato Sack

By on April 15, 2011, 10:33 AM
As part of its ongoing ARG, Valve has launched a promotion that will allow gamers to unlock Portal 2 ahead of its April 19 release date. The catch? You have to buy The Potato Sack and play the 13 indie games inside. The more you play, the quicker Portal 2 will be cut loose. On the bright side, the company is offering Portal 2 and The Potato Sack together for 62% off. You can track the status here. Steam is also reducing a new set of RockStar games every day this weekend, along with offering a pack of Splinter Cell games including Conviction and its DLC for $25.98. More deals below:

You only have to play a game that is in the potato pack. You do not have to buy the potato pack.

So if you already own $GameInPotatoPack then you can play that to help release Portal 2.

Coming up next, we'll kill a kitten every hour until 100,000 people pre-order our game.

Well said haha!

I'm looking forward to Portal 2, after playing a host of terrible games lately. As I stick to PC sometimes there's a period of stagnation where I find myself playing Battlefield every day.

Also, anything that involves what Team Fortress 2 has become just makes me sad (read, Team Fortress Hats)

Thanks for the heads up regarding the Max Payne bundle. Sure I'll never get to these games like all the others I own, but they look to be worth owning.

Defense Grid is one of the greatest gamed I ever played. Best five bucks you'll ever spend.
