Prima Launches In-Game Steam Guides

Prima, longtime provider of video game strategy guides, will now be offering digital guides through Steam. Using the Steam overlay, guides can also be accessed within a game. The digital guides also include videos, which are obviously not available in print.

Regularly priced at $19.99, all guides are 50% off to celebrate the launch. Currently, guides are available for:

This is a great idea, but the Steam overlay also includes a web browser, which can be used to find the most up-to-date strategies, walkthroughs, cheats, and more for no additional charge around the Internet.

Still, as a consumer, it's nice to have the option of purchasing a professionally made digital guide along with a digital game.

      Yeah, I genuinely can't imagine anyone buying one of these. If they were, like, a buck a piece I could imagine them working - maybe - as an impulse buy.
