Empty your wallets: The Steam Lunar New Year sale has begun

Steam's Lunar New Year sale is supposed to kick off today

Valve Holds Steam Lunar New Year Sale, Makes Changes To Wishlist

The latest software update for Steam has added more sorting and filtering options to the Steam Wishlist. The Steam Lunar New Year Sale serves up discounts on over 15,000 games, so obviously there's no way to list them all here.

It's now possible to filter your list to show games discounted by a certain percetage, and there's the more generally useful option to only show titles that are currently on sale. This can be frustrating when trying to find items during a large Steam sale or to finding purchases at particular prices. You can filter your wishlist based on price, discount amount, genre, and tags.

Players can now apply a filter that hides non-discounted games and displays titles that currently only have a price reduction of at least 25 percent, 50 percent, or 75 percent.

Check out the wishlist update by heading over to the Steam Blog's official announcement.

Below are some specific deals and you can visit the Steam Store to see the full list of now discounted titles.

Additionally, there are a now a couple of options created to help temporarily shrink your wishlist by hiding those games that you want to track but that you can't or don't want to buy just yet. However, we found that there are cases where it isn't always clear which version of the game should be added to the cart.

Also, games can now be added to the cart straight from the Wishlist without needing to visit their store pages. However, this is only available for games with only a single purchase option-those with multiple editions will require you to go to the store page, so as to save you from purchasing a version that isn't exactly what you're looking for. I do have a couple of games on my wishlist that I might consider grabbing though.
