Hide Your Wallets, Steam’s Summer Sale Probably Starts Today

steamsale

Whatever you do, if you want your wallet to stand any chance of surviving the oncoming onslaught, don’t log onto Steam for the next few days as the Steam summer sale will probably begin today. Your already large and unmanageable backlog, thanks to the last Steam Sale, will grow uncontrollably should you give into temptation.Ultimately though, Gabe will get our money, and at the low prices that games go for on a Steam Summer Sale, we will gladly give it to him.

So why do we believe Christmas starts early for PC gamers? Well, according to a tip email sent to a customer from Valve’s customer support team, Steam’s Sales is supposed to begin today. If you don’t believe us, you can see for yourself here. So now that it’s only a few hours away, we hope, what games are you guys hoping to get? or, should it not happen, what games are you planning to get when the glorious event finally does occur?

Gaming runs through my veins, well that and ...erhm deoxygenated blood... I guess, but there is an equal gaming to oxygen ratio pumping through me. It keeps me going, its what I love, and I wish I was doing it right now.
  • John Knight

    I would like to see if dark goes on sale!

  • Ruan Venter

    NOOOOO! I love to hate it!!
    I’m not sure what I want yet, will have to wait and see what is on offer, but I do know that I always end up increasing my Back Log a little more with each sale they have!

  • John Knight

    I would like to see if dark goes on sale as well as metro last light. I see The Forest has been greenlit… any idea how long it will take until it is available?

    • Timothy

      That depends on Steam, the developer and how ready their latest build is. It can sometimes be quite quickly while at other teams take a reasonable length of time.

      • John Knight

        Awesome thanks for letting me know, after you guys introduced us to the game I have wanted it.

        • Timothy

          Yeah, it seems a decent number of people are now interested in this game. And who can blame them, or you and I, it looks awesome.

  • Timothy

    I’ve suspected it was today since Tuesday and so if it doesn’t happen I will be a broken soul

    • David Kozlowski

      What are you hoping goes for cheap? I am crossing fingers for Tomb Raider going for like R150, i,ll jump on that.

      • Timothy

        ALL THE THINGS. ALL OF THEM!

  • Albertus

    Comes at the worst possible time in my financial cycle! WHY??????!!!!!!

  • mogamat

    hope they have some good games

  • Lonthor

    Can’t wait!!!

  • http://www.stribe.co.za Johann Smith

    installed steam on my mac again. I’m ready!!

  • John Knight

    Any idea what time the sale should start?

    • David Kozlowski

      Most likely around 8 o clock tonite, otherwise some weird time like 2 in the morning, so not 100% sure.

      • John Knight

        Awesome, I can’t wait!

  • Admiral Chief

    My credit card is ready!!!!

    Good for you guys. Hope you guys get some sweet deals. The only game going to consider getting would be Black Ops II plus all the DLC. Speaking of which, how long does the sale last usually?

    • David Kozlowski

      Like 4 days usually, be sure to stay on top of the flash sales BTW.

      • John Knight

        Will they have updates about the flash sales on facebook?

      • John Knight

        And also how long do flash sales last for?

        • David Kozlowski

          They usually last around 5-6 hours, so you want to make sure u check a few times a day. Not sure about Facebook but they should have.

          • John Knight

            Awesome will have a look then :D

      • http://g3ar.co.za Gary

        Guess I’ll sit this one out. How many times in the year does STEAM have these types of sales? Will there be one after say, 26th July 2013? Maybe a fall sale? Or a winter sale? Why does summer get all the love?

  • Marius

    woot been saving up for this.

  • marc

    my walllet is emty aswell- maybe i should stand at a robot.

  • EmileS

    Damn! And I still have sooooo much to play! But, card is ready! :D

  • Zhameer

    Looks like a lot of people are having sales these days and its awesome especially with the dry season of gaming that’s hit us.

  • The Batfan

    Somebody buy me stuff and I will strip for you to that song about submarines.

    • John Knight

      haha thanks but no thanks :P

    • http://g3ar.co.za Gary

      Damn, guess you really want in on this Steam sale don’t you batfan? Just sell your left nut man. I here those pay pretty well. You’d be getting in on the steam sale and people will respect you as a true psy- err, hardcore gamer.

    • Marc

      Rather stand at a robot – you may have more luck.

  • Ruan Venter

    MAN!! I cant access Steam!
    Complaining the load on the server is too heavy!

    • http://g3ar.co.za Gary

      Hahahahaha!! You got screwed out of the steam sale!!!
      …….
      …just like me.
      T_T

    • David Kozlowski

      Steams crumbling under the mass load, too many people are throwing money at Gabe, got a glimpse of some specials, Bioshock: Infinite for R299 not amazing but not bad, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger for like R120 ! in my veins u go !

  • Slim

    Ahhhhhh crap wrong timing……Sigh

  • Carla

    hahaha steam summer sale, making gaming shops go bankrupt around the world

  • Eugene

    To be honest, there are other distribution sites like Green Man Gaming and Amazon that match and beat Steam often, but what they don’t have is the community vibe during the sales that Steam has. That’s why everyone waits for Steam’s sales and not the others. I really love the little things Valve do.

  • John Knight

    managed to get CS:GO for R55 last night :D

    • David Kozlowski

      Do well u have…such a great game.

  • Maiya

    you think your wallet is safe , steam will find it

    • The Batfan

      “I WILL FIND HIM!” SteamZod

  • Lonthor

    So far I’m only spent $5. Trying to hold back lol.

  • Marc

    I have been keeping an eye on the sale. Some really good deals but also a lot of not so great ones. Still not the greatest thing since sliced bread that I expected it to be.
