The Steam digital distribution client gained notoriety for deep discounts on a wide selection of games from niche indie titles to AAA blockbusters. Although, in recent years, the sales haven’t been as enticing and many people flock to third-party key resellers to acquire the latest games at rock bottom prices. Nevertheless, during any Steam event, there’s always some bargains to be found. As you might expect, Valve is planning a Winter Sale for the holiday period. Furthermore, The Dark Side of Gaming received an advert from Paypal leaking the sale’s date:
It’s not uncommon for Steam sale dates to be revealed beforehand, but it’s certainly an error on Paypal’s part. Unless, they want to inform people prior to the sale to purchase Steam gift cards. Whatever the case, December 22nd isn’t too far off and I cannot wait to see which games I can pick up for low prices. Sadly, it looks like there won’t be able flash deals, or daily deals due to the recent Steam Refund Policy. This does take away some of the excitement factor and I loved the countdown when new deals arrived each day.
