Gamers everywhere rejoice! After spending your hard earned dollars buying Christmas gifts for your loved ones, you can finally treat yourself! NeoGAF has let it slip that the Steam Winter Sale will begin on December 22nd! Eurogamer has since confirmed this, and has also added that the sale will end on January 2nd.
The news shouldn’t come as much of a shock to anyone that follows this sort of thing. Steam held its winter sale on the same date last year. These big sales after the holidays are becoming a commonplace. With gamer fatigue really setting in because of annual releases of our favorite titles, a lot of gamers don’t want to drop $50 or $60 for every title they want to play.
It would be wise for any of you still needing to give gift ideas to your family and friends to suggest a Steam gift card this holiday season as there will be literally thousands of titles available on the cheap.
