never a good sign to see a new game this cheap this soon

Not really, its down this cheap on one site plus its a single player online game about sniping....console version still isn't on sale. Pretty typical for a PC game if ask me.

I still find the "online" portion of this sort of thing funny. Nothing against the genre---slow, methodical sniping in SP is all good. I quite enjoy the first Sniper Elite, aside from the parts where you...aren't sniping.

But full on multiplayer battles of "Who pokes their head out first" just comes off as a biiiit of a bad idea. As one review I saw pointed out: It's like taking that "1337 snipah" that sits in the back of the map in *all* online multiplayer shooters that allow it, and making *everyone* that person.

Well I hope that it goes on sale during Steam Sale. As Amazon sucks outside of Canada

A game that is on sale quickly after its release is because it is not selling. That does not mean that its bad, it just simply means people are not buying for whatever reason.

No, Max Payne 3 was also 50% off like a month after release. It has nothing to do with the game and everything to do with the PC gaming market.

They are able to increase sales by having more discounts. It's the same tactic that Valve has been using to keep their own games selling high and now many other publishers and distributors do the same. Even Skyrim was on sale quickly after release. Hell, it still hasn't been a year and Deus Ex:HR had over a dozen sales.

There isn't a PC game attached to Steam that doesn't do a hard discount within it's first few months. The only PC gaming company that holds from doing these kinds of discounts are Blizzard.

PC gaming has become Walmart and Target-like ever since Steam became notorious with these sales,

Honestly it's not that great a game, but $15 is a decent price for it so soon after release.

Sniper Elite V2 is pretty terrible. Honestly I wouldn't buy it for 10 dollars if I could take back my purchase of it.

I really don't understand the hate...I played the demo and loved the atmosphere and the realism of the the full game significantly worse than the demo or something? Is it because you actually have to account for bullet drop, heart rate and wind etc.?
