When is the next sale?

This may be likely as all rumors surrounding this event point towards this week. But just like any rumors and information leaks, we will still have to wait for Valve’s confirmation about this year’s Steam Summer Sale.

What are the Best Deals to watch out for?

There came a time when daily deals and flash sales ruled the seasonal sale. As much as 80%-90% were slashed off from titles that were placed on the said sale. The summer sale will be very different from the fall/winter sale. Games will be at their lowest prices ever.

In terms of specific deals, Steam keeps silent on all bargains but rest assured pretty much everything in the catalog will have their prices slashed. But of course, everyone is closely looking at all the recent titles joining the sale. Are we going to see a discount on the recently released Tekken 7? Will we get a slashed price for Resident Evil 7? Or are we going to buy a stockpile of games again without even playing them? We will see when the time comes.
