If the streets are lined with snow and the temperature drops below freezing, what does that mean? It means it's time for the Steam Winter Sale!...

    It's the most wonderful time of the year, Steam Sale time! Yes folks you heard that right, It's time for Steam to launch their annual Steam Winter Sale. Much like the other Steam sales, the Steam Winter Sale is notorious for providing gamers with unbeatable deals on some of the hottest titles from that year, but it is also notorious for emptying out wallets in the blink of an eye. Although Steam haven't officially announced the date that the sale is slated to begin, new leaks from PayPal suggest that the sale will begin on December 22nd, 2015 or in other words, Tuesday.

    You may be wondering, how the heck did a company like PayPal leak the Steam sale? Well if that's the case then you would probably be surprised to hear that this isn't the first time this has happened. Earlier today PayPal put up a banner image on their site that was promoting users to give or get a digital gift card to use during the Steam Winter Sale, which in turn also revealed the date that it was slated to begin. Now this shouldn't be taken very seriously since it isn't an official announcement, but About a month ago, PayPal sent out an email that was intended to encourage users to purchase Steam Wallet cards for the upcoming Steam Fall Sale, and in that email they listed off the date that the sale would begin and it turned out to be correct.

    An end date was not given in the PayPal banner, but the sale is expected to run for at least a week, maybe even more if it decides to extend until the new year. What do you think? Are you prepared for the sale? More importantly, is your wallet prepared for the sale? Leave your thoughts and comments below!

      hen you need to search for more games! There's more games out there that you'd enjoy that you have time to try.

    This makes me glad I don't play on PC. I've spent more than enough on games this year.

      Yeah but a lot of people wait for the big AAA games to go on sale to buy them, so you probably would've ended up spending less money this way.

      Smart buying guide for Steam: Step 1 put game into wishlist. Step 2 wait for email saying game is on sale. Step 3 play the **** out of it for the first 2 hours so you know it's worth keeping.

    I don't understand this article at all. It goes off an email paypal sent out claiming paypal leaked the sale date yet they were officially announced over a month ago, both the fall and winter sales. In that same release they had announced the new system they were using for the sales where there would be no flash sales and everything would be on sale up front for the duration of the sale. Here is one article written back in November that has all the information (http://www.pcgamer.com/steams-autumn-and-winter-sales-will-ditch-daily-deals-and-flash-sales/). That also includes the end date of the sale.
    There have been a lot of sites mis-reporting the information claiming paypal leaked the date when they did not. Along with the mis-reports there was lots of speculation and false information being posted for whatever reason.

    Also just incase someone is confused by the article I linked to above the official announcement came from the steam works developer group. It was re-posted on reddit which is what the article used as their source.

      That post was supposedly only meant for developers eyes, and then it was messaged into Reddit. She to that, there's no real easy to confirm the information listed until steam or valve make a public statement. This PayPal leak simply further process that the leak may have been right all along.
    2. RapCat
      It wasn't just meant for developers eyes. If you actually look at the article I posted it links to Eurogamer who had contacted Valve and confirmed the information a month ago. Valve actually had sent out confirmation of the everything posted to many major publishers and Eurogamer also released that information in their post.
      Here is the direct link incase it is inaccessible via Pcgamer (http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2015-11-20-no-flash-or-daily-deals-during-steam-autumn-winter-sales).

      They didn't reach out, they got the same notification as everyone else which again wasn't supposed to go public afaik.

      The entire situation is questionable. Their previous two statements have become reality but until anything actually happens from Valve publicly, I would consider it a leak and so would other sources.
