Evidence is mounting that Steam’s annual, wallet-destroying Summer Sale will begin this week.
The dates come via an ad spotted by NeoGAF users.
That’s not the only bit of evidence pointing to this date range, though; SteamDB’s curators noted on Twitter that this week’s Steam sales end on Thursday June 19, rather than running for a full week as is usual.
The Summer Sale is usually Steam’s biggest of the year, offering huge discounts via daily deals and regular flash sales. We all usually spend a great deal of money saving money on games we never actually get around to playing.
The fashion for enormous sales is popular among the pocket-sore, but some developers believe sales are bad for both consumers and the industry as a whole.
