Steam Summer Sale 2017 - Let the discount hunt begin

Steam Sale

Update: The Steam Summer Sale has now officially started. The discounts beckon again and are at least as hot as the temperatures outside.

Original message: As every summer, Valve's efforts to keep the Steam Summer Sale a secret were unsuccessful. A few weeks ago, the date for June 22nd, 2017 to July 5th, 2017 was revealed in a first leaked email. Now there was confirmation with a PayPal discount campaign for buyers from England. The 2nd Christmas will start at 7 p.m.

Steam Summer Sale - Endless discounts

So it's time to run out of credit cards, take a vacation, and grab the bargains.

The Steam Summer Sale is one of the biggest discount campaigns for computer games every year, with thousands of discounted games. Well-known names and titles can often be found here for 50% or less. A very practical page that provides an overview of the sales and at the same time provides data such as the maximum discount that has ever been available for this game:

If you still remember the "old" Steam Sales, you should be aware that there are no more daily or flash deals. These "super discounts" where you could catch games for a few hours with 70%-90% discounts have disappeared since the introduction of the refund system. Even if this is regretted by many people, it saves you the work of sitting in front of the computer every 8 hours so that you don't miss anything. On the other hand, the Steam customer server would probably be inundated with millions of tickets if the customers found the game bought on day 1 with a discount, for example: 50%, in order to get it even cheaper in the flash sale.

So don't rush and don't try to buy 30 games in the first minute the sale starts, even Steam's gigantic servers are usually helpless in the face of the onslaught. Have fun browsing the schnapps!

The Steam Summer Sale 2017 will run from June 22nd to July 5th, 2017.
