Steam Summer Sale on June 22?

A post on reddit claims to leak an exclusive Steamworks secret in revealing a June 22nd start date for this year's Steam Summer Sale (thanks PCGamesN). This is unconfirmed, but it won't be a big surprise if it turns out to be accurate, as a bunch of the dates for Steam's big seasonal sales have leaked early over the past few years.

When's the last time anyone was excited for a Steam sale? Several years at any rate.

My thoughts are basically the same. I've had better luck going to cheapassgamer and slickdeals,setting alerts for any good buys at various 3rd party sites, and occasionally grey market places like cdkeys.com

I am hearing quite a bit of praise for Prey, I guess I'll have to pick that up at some point when it gets sufficiently discounted. That probably won't be during this summer sale though.

It was on sale yesterday as part of GMG anniversary sale for $29CDN plus an additional 20% off
Probably around $15~$20US?

Well crap, I missed that one then. It's listed as $47.99 on GMG now.

Yeah the sales have been nerfed to the point they are not interesting. I guess that's how the publishers wanted it.
Plus valve rolled their desks away, too much work after they did the various extravaganza sales, including with the achievements in those games, potatoes, etc. So it's boring now from that view too

Yep, although that's not quite as useful for me, I check my email irregularly, and never on my dedicated gaming machine, which is still running Windows 8.1 and shivers in fear, knowing it can be wiped at any moment.

How many items are displayed does not phase me, I have a list of what I want when I go to the store.

Same, that's what the Steam wishlist is for, to sift through the chaff for the relatively few grains of wheat you're actually interested in.

Otherwise you'll be scrolling through crap forever. Whenever I hear about a game on Bluesnews or wherever that sounds interesting, I Wishlist it on Gog/Steam, and just check those lists every so often.

Also IMO the volume of shovelware and early-access games have also muddied the waters.

I just wish brick and mortar stores had a search function like steam, then I would even save more time.

There is nothing special about the summer sale any more other than the convenience of all the games being on sale at the same time. I think most of the sales prices can be found at various times through out the year. Also IMO the volume of shovelware and early-access games have also muddied the waters.
