GG.deals Preview - 3rd stage of keyshop integration
One of the biggest improvements is the next stage of keyshop integration! Keyshop prices are now included in a number of new places:
- Games view - you can now see prices from both "worlds" - official stores and keyshops
- Main search - search results show the lowest price of both worlds
- homepage - 4 sections include keyshops: Popular games, New releases, Preorders, Most Wanted
Note: If you can always disable keyshop prices in the menu, if you don't like them
We realize it's not perfect that some views include keyshops and som don't. :/ Having made a small step forward today, we continue working on the matter at hand. Next stage of integration will be adding keyshops to Deals and Wishlist views.
GG.deals Preview - no more mess with Historical Lows
Old version of GG.deals is very inconsistent when it comes to historical lows. Views that don't include keyshops indicate "historical low" only within the "world" of official stores. It can cause real confusion - ie a game that is allegedly at historical low in one place is no longer at historical low on a game card.
GG.deals Preview fixes this problem
- If you enable keyshops, historical low always considers both "worlds" - even within the views where keyshops are not yet integrated
- If you disable keyshops, historical low always considers only the "world" of official stores.
GG.deals Preview - new homepage
The new homepage is a bit less condensed, which homefully will make it more readible. The "Popular games" section is now in the form of "Top #12 ranking" - you can swipe this section left and right. We've also enlarged the news section to make i more important.
Keyshop prices are now featured in Popular Games, New releases, Preorders and Most Wanted Sections.
You can also add games to your Wishlist/Alerts/Collection directly from the homepage - it wasn't possible before!
GG.deals Preview - Deals view
Deals view now features a dynamic sidebar with additional 3 offers as well as historical low and game reviews. Hopefully it will make browsing offers easier!
We simplified the Deal rating. Old GG.deals included a very obscure grading - X out of 10. Not many users understood that the numbers reflect on the quality of the Deal. It is not explained where the number comes from.
Instead of going into details of how the DR formulae is calculated, we decided to use something easy to understand - flame emojis:
- Deal rating 0.0 - 5.9 = no flame
- Deal rating 6.0 - 7.9 = orange flame
- Deal rating 8.0 - 10.0 = red flame
The new Deal Rating filter allows you to quickly modify the DR settings. It is set to 5.0/10 by default to restrict the view only to best quality Deals.
It's worth mentioning that old Deals view had 2 filters active by default, which some users found quite annoying. It is no longer the case on the preview version.
GG.deals Preview - Games view
Both list and grid views include TWO prices - from official stores and keyshops. The all new list view includes the dynamic sidebar with some extra information like reviews, historical low, tags and features.
GG.deals Preview - News view
There are now two ways of browsing news - tiles and grid. You can choose which of the two you prefer, but we hope that both options are more readible than the old layout!
If you prefer to read vertically, you can choose to browse news as list.
GG.deals Preview - other changes
The new layout has also been introduced in other views: Wishlist, Collection, Alerts, Notifications and Vouchers. Especially the first two views deserve your attention as we added there the aformentioned dynamic sidebar with more information about a game.
