The weekend’s best deals: Steam Lunar New Year Sale, Fitbit trackers, and more

It’s the weekend, which means it’s time for another Dealmaster. Our latest roundup of the best deals from around the web includes a number of sales for Lunar New Year across video game storefronts. Steam looks to have the most sweeping selection of deals for PC gamers, but the Epic Games Store is running its own sale as well, and some of the deals from those promotions are also available at competing stores like GOG and Humble. And on the console side, Microsoft has discounted several Xbox games for the occasion.

In general, these sales aren’t quite as extensive as the ones we saw around the holidays, but they still include several notable discounts on games we like. Past Ars game of the year winners Psychonauts 2, Hades, and Celeste are all available for less than their average going rates, as are several of the lesser-hyped gems we recommended during Steam’s summer sale last year. We’ve noted a few more highlights—including deals on Half-Life: AlyxUntitled Goose Game, and Halo Infinite, among others—below.
End dates for these sales vary, but Steam says its promotion will end on February 3, while Epic says its sale will wrap up on February 10. If you shop through the latter, note that you can use the $10 coupon offer the company has rolled out for previous sales—but you’ll need to sign up for Epic’s emails and alerts program (or already be signed up) to access it. If you can live with that, you’ll get a coupon that’ll take an additional $10 off the deals already in place, provided your cart totals $14.99 or more. This means you could get, say, Hades for $6 instead of its current discounted price of $16. Unlike the Epic sale we saw last month, however, this coupon is one-time use only.

Beyond that, our roundup also has a $5 discount on the just-released Switch game Pokémon Legends: Arceus, deals on recommended AirPods and Beats headphones, a new low on the latest Fitbit Charge tracker, good prices on the Surface Pro 8 and various SSDs, and more. You can have a look at our full curated list below.
