Steam wishlist sort and filter improvements rolled out


Valve is holding a Lunar New Year Sale, which has discounts on many games and runs through February 19.

Today we rolled out an update giving you more control over your Steam Wishlist. There's also the option to see the price of games that are below your Steam Wallet balance, $5, or $10. Items on your wishlist will now show the platforms, tags, overall review score, and current price with discount. However, this also grants these developers access to Steam's private developer forums, where Valve makes announcements for things like upcoming sale dates, allowing publishers an opportunity to prepare their discounts in advance. Consumers can also filter by whether a game is in Early Access, is available for purchase ahead of release or VR-only. Add these filters together, and it's now possible to quickly find an RPG you're interested in that's below a certain price threshold.

The Wishlist can also be sorted by tags or genres, so now Steam displays the top-ranked tags for each item on the list. In other words, you can finally add such a game to your wishlist to keep track of its full release but avoid having it clutter your wishlist when you're looking to shop in the meantime.

In addition to the remaining two United Kingdom packages to be decided, a further windfall will be expected when the overseas rights are sold.

To decide what changed would be popular with Steam users Valve sensibly filtered through common requests seen in the Steam Community pages.

At the time of writing the wishlist filters and sorting improvements weren't available to me on the web or via the Steam client app unless I followed the link from the home page banner. This is especially handy when you have 100 or more games on the list and you want to browse by whether a title is on sale.
