I would like to request a display of app's full price along with discounted as most of the time, when checking prices, I need to know full one too and currently I have to calculate it myself.
We don't show 'full' price due to the way lowest prices are detected. If a complete pack costs less than the base game, we will use that price as game's price, and showing the non discounted price would be incorrect in that case. Steam does not have any indication of which purchase option is the "main one", and because of that we have to always search for the lowest one.
I'm not sure if I follow your explanation, @xPaw. For instance here: https://gyazo.com/9b8f51a6688d2b2520ce948d2ee3b4be
Does it mean that if I do the calculations based on the displayed current price and discount to get the original price I won't get the correct result? Seems to work for me every time I've checked it.
Thanks in advance for clarifying the point.
Generally you will get the right price. But if, for example, complete pack is cheaper than the base game, then the complete pack's price will be used.
Thanks! One related question. I've noticed that when there's been a base price change for a game, the "lowest discount" displayed seems to be still related to the price existing at the time that discount was issued, which is somewhat misleading when you have not that original price on sight. As examples of this I can name:
Wolfenstein: The New Order
Is this on purpose or just collateral damage? Maybe it would be more useful to just display the "best price ever" instead of the "best discount ever", so to speak, that way both displayed prices would be comparable, unlike the discounts.
What do you think?
It's certainly not on purpose, and I think it should be changed to comparing prices to be more accurate.
