Gamasutra - Steam sales: How deep discounts really affect your games

I am surprised Microsoft has never jumped on the huge sale idea with their XBox Live. They typically offer discounts on a few items each week at an average of 25% off original sale price. Sometimes just silly stuff too, map packs and costumes. They have just recently started selling games at half off. But these are 3-5 games a week and there is never a bonanza like a summer or Christmas sale like Steam. I don't understand why they don't do it, people buy games during these sales they may play for 5 minutes or not at all. They buy more games than they could ever play. It seems to work for both sides, consumers splurge but they always have something to play. I now play games almost exclusively on my pc because of these sales, even though my couch is much more comfortable.
