Steam is running an aptly entitled Golden Week sale in order to celebrate the Golden Week in Japan. A Golden Week is a celebration of four national holidays that happen to fall in the same week, every year, sometime at the end of April and beginning of the month of May. The sale is almost completely focused on games created and developed in Japan, and because the Japanese ongoing renaissance of games on PC there is utterly a lot of games to go through. What better way to celebrate an extended holiday than by relaxing on a sofa and playing video games all day? Well, Steam has all the Japanese titles screened, but also, gamers from all over the world can take advantage of the Golden Week sales as well.
The number of games on sale, all developed in Japan, are most likely in the thousands. The sales includes numerous big titles but most of them are small, that you can try out just because of the sale. Also hosting a Golden Week sale on the PlayStation Store is Sony, across more than one console.
