If your holiday plans involve chillaxing and binging on a ton of video games, we have some great news for you. Now through January 4th at 1PM ET, thousands of great titles are on sale as part of Steam’s annual winter sale, including many of our favorites from the past year.

The ongoing promo offers a great chance to catch up on newer titles, including demon-slaying action RPG Diablo IV ($28 off), the terrific remake of Dead Space ($36 off), and Mortal Kombat 1 ($35 off). Other titles that aren’t as discounted but still well worth a look include GOTY contender Baldur’s Gate 3 ($6 off), Cocoon ($5 off), and the delightfully charming deep sea exploration game, Dave the Diver ($4 off).

There are plenty of older titles on sale, too, just in case you’ve already played all of the aforementioned 2023 hits. Cyberpunk 2077 is half off at $29.99, for instance, and the recently released Ultimate Edition is already down to just $51.04 ($39 off). The Supergiant Collection is on sale for even less at $35.63 ($94 off) — which is a banger of a deal given the superb bundle includes Hades, Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre along with their respective soundtracks.

Diablo IV

Diablo IV is the latest installment in Activision Blizzard’s dungeon-crawling series. The live service take on the Diablo franchise has a lengthy mainline story in a sidequest-filled open world, with seasonal content added over time. Read our review.

Dead Space (2023)

$6060% off

A remake of the 2008 sci-fi third-person horror shooter from Electronic Arts and Motive Studio. Isaac Clarke battles his way through the nightmarish depths of the USG Ishimura to find survivors, now with overhauled visuals and quality-of-life improvements on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, and PC. It’s also available on Xbox Game Pass. Read our review.

Cyberpunk 2077: Ultimate Edition includes the base game as well as CDPR’s excellent Phantom Liberty expansion, which improves the game significantly. The spy thriller DLC introduces players to a new area of Night City, along with a host of new quests and items.

It’s no secret that we at The Verge are huge fans of Elgato’s Stream Decks, which is why we’re excited so many of them are currently on sale. Right now, for example, the Stream Deck Mini is on sale for $59.99 ($20 off) at Amazon and B&H Photo, which is one of the better prices we’ve seen this year. If you need a larger macro controller, the Stream Deck XL is also down to $189.99 ($60 off) at AmazonBest Buy, and B&H Photo, which is just $5 shy of its best price to date.

Both models come with programmable LCD keys, which you can use to turn on your smart lights, send emails, change your Slack status, or enable shortcuts for a host of other tasks. The Elgato Stream Deck XL, however, features a total of 32 customizable macro buttons while the Stream Deck Mini only comes with six. That means you won’t be able to create as many shortcuts with the smaller model, though, you will still be able to create at least a couple to streamline your workflow.


The Elgato Stream Deck Mini is a customizable, six-button keyboard with LED screens for buttons. It can be used to control a wide variety of things, including smart lights, computer automations, and microphone and video controls when on video calls or live streaming.

Elgato Stream Deck XL

$25024% off

The Stream Deck XL is the 32-key version of the Elgato Stream Deck. It doesn’t feature a swappable faceplate like the MK. 2 version of the standard Stream Deck, but it has more than double the number of buttons to push.

A few more deals worth perusing

  • Apple’s latest 14-inch MacBook Pro is available at Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo with a base M3 chip, 512GB of storage, and 8GB of RAM for $1,399 ($200 off), which marks a new all-time low. The new entry-level MacBook Pro offers faster performance and longer battery life than its predecessor, along with — gasp! — a physical function bar (sayonara, Touch Bar). Read our review.
  • You can currently grab UE’s Wonderboom 3 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target for $59.99 ($40 off), which matches its lowest price to date. In addition to IP67 waterproofing, the portable Bluetooth speaker offers one-touch controls, up to 14 hours of battery life, and comes in an array of fun colors. Too bad it still uses Micro USB-C for charging. Ugh.
  • The Chipolo Card Spot is down to $24.49 ($10.50 off) at Best Buy, its second-best price to date. The item tracker is thin like the Tile Slim and thus wallet-friendly, but it can also tap into Apple’s robust Find My network when it’s time to find your lost belongings. Read our review.
  • If you’re in the market for a cheaper pair of wireless earbuds and don’t mind something a bit older, the original Beats Studio Buds have hit an all-time low of $79.95 ($70 off) at Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart. They don’t quite measure up to the newer Plus model, though, the comfy buds do support native Android features and offer good sound quality for the price. Read our review.
  • Both the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora are already down to $49.99 ($20 off) at Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop despite having launched just two weeks ago. The open-world title is based around James Cameron’s Avatar films, and though it certainly doesn’t reinvent the action-adventure genre, it offers up a pretty stunning world to explore.
