Steam's wishlist tool has had an overhaul

17 February 2018

While this sale is certainly shorter than both of Steam's Winter and Summer Sales, the Lunar New Year is a welcomed sale since the removal of Steam's now-defunct Flash Sales, which would place some of the year's biggest hits on sale for just a few days before the offers would disappear. Is there anything you are hoping to grab in the Steam sale today?

With every Steam sale comes a wide variety of games that are a steal for their price, relatively speaking.

Unreleased games added to the Wishlist will now have a release date noted.

The latest software update for Steam has added more sorting and filtering options to the Steam Wishlist. Now you can sort your wishlist by genre, tag, price, and whether it's on sale or not. Users can also exclude early access, pre-release, and VR-only titles, and you have the option of only showing games that can be purchased with the amount in your Steam Wallet.

Other filters include certain price thresholds, operating system support and whether they're on sale or not.

There's also the ability to add items to the cart directly from the wishlist, which cuts down on clicks.

The combination of filters and sort-orders users pick will also automatically save and apply next time the Wishlist is accessed.

To decide what changed would be popular with Steam users Valve sensibly filtered through common requests seen in the Steam Community pages. Tags have been added to the wishlist viewer for all games, and the search option now extends to these tags in addition to game titles.

In any case, if you want to check out the full Lunar New Year Sale, you can see the full list of games available at Steam now.
