Every year comes with new opportunities for gamers. During Steam Summer Sale they have the chance to enlarge their collection with awesome releases and they don’t even have to spend all the money they saved. The event is hosted on the Steam platform and participants can expect to acquire popular games right from the catalogue with considerable discounts. The organizers haven’t made any official announcement yet, but the prices can be reduced with 75% or more.
When will the event start?
Passionate gamers are waiting anxiously for this event and many have saved money especially for this Sale. So far, a big mystery was wrapped around the Steam Summer Sale’s starting date. Now, according to some leaks, those who want to renew their games collection in 2018 have to mark the 21st of June in their calendars.
The date is very close, so get ready and prepare to open your wallets for about two weeks. We can approximate the duration based on previous year experience, so in your case, most probably, the event will last until the 5th of July.
Most of the people who share the same passion for video games consider this a great opportunity, but there are also people who criticize Valve, the owners of Steam platform and the Sale organizers. According to some voices, during the Sale, intellectual property loses its value because of so many discounts and ”digital hoarding” is encouraged.
Driven by the excitement, people buy a lot of games that they never actually play and this is a waste of money. Also, somebody’s work isn’t appreciated and this isn’t the developers’ purpose.
In any case, the Steam Summer Sale is one of the greatest opportunities to make great bargains for new games and people who want to try the latest releases shouldn’t miss it. Just keep the 21st of June 2018 in mind and be prepared to start shopping!
