    Steam summer sales dates and speculation on the next ones.

    Let me start by saying that I moved to England a month ago and haven't sorted out a debit card yet and I'm worried that I might miss the steam summer sale.

    Does anyone know the dates of previous summer sales or maybe some speculation when the next one might be?

    The last two have started the last Thursday of June so this one broke the pattern. If you go to their forums there is a massive thread of speculation about when it will start. Supposedly it was leaked by a developer that it would be starting July 12th but the guy backed off that right after saying it claiming it was an error on his part and he heard it from another developer. I wish it would have been this past Thursday like usual.

    No idea why it is taking so long, but it's making me sad that it hasn't happened yet, haha.
    I wish that they had a set schedule.

    If they had a set schedule people would hold off on buying games until the sale started, especially older games that generally get knocked down 50-75%. I am hoping that Fallout New Vegas Ultimate edition shows up on the sale whenever it comes, because I just won't pay $40 for it, but I will pay $20 if it is up there for that, otherwise I will just wait until it eventually gets to $20.

    I did something similar. GameStop had a buy 2, get 1 free sale in the winter, so I went and bought 6 games on a whim. I've only played 1, and I had already beaten 3 of the 6 I bought. They were just really good games that I would maybe play again, or like to let a friend try (Devil May Cry 4, Bioshock, and Halo 3).

    They don't have a schedule, and I'm still not buying anything until the sale starts. The faster they start the sale, they faster they take all of my money.

    Endless space is gonna get released tonight and the next release of a game is on 26th.
    So this gives a good free space for them to throw in the summer sale.
    Will prolly start this weekend, but no one knows for sure .
