I have a lot of savegames and I'd like to clean them up. Ingame you can only delete them one by one. There is a folder "Saves" in the steamapps folder (I have the steam game) but there are no files in there. Am I looking at the wrong location?

I am currently even facing problems. Not all savegames are offered in the menu - probably because I have so many.

On windows 7, they are in Documents\My Games\XCOM - Enemy Unknown\XComGame\SaveData

Note that this applies to the steam install. According to helpful comments, it's the location is the same for the retail version (and retail purchases apparently just provide steam keys).

I'm pretty sure XCOM is a Steamworks game, which means there's only a steam version - the retail version comes with a code and disc that must be activated with Steam in order to work. –  agent86 Oct 16 '12 at 22:55

Ah, so the Saves folder in steamapps is just to confuse me :). –  StampedeXV Oct 17 '12 at 8:16
    
@StampedeXV - yeah, more or less. ;) –  peacedog Oct 17 '12 at 12:47
    
I can confirm that savegames of the retail version are saved at the same position as the digital download one. –  Saxtus Oct 17 '12 at 20:22

On MacOS, the Steam edition saves its games to ~/Library/Application Support/Feral Interactive/XCOM Enemy Unknown/SaveData/. I suspect the non-Steam version is the same (aka Elite Edition, Mac AppStore). Details from this blog post. The Steam edition also has Steam Cloud synchronization, but I have not verified that it's working.

It's the 'users' folder, even if you've moved your normal documents - it still goes to the Windows default folder...
