The lights are on
As the warmer months arrive, one thought lingers in the back of every PC gamer's mind. Each morning, one question is repeated over and over. "When does the Steam Summer Sale begin?"
We have an answer, bargain hunters. The Steam Sale begins… NOW.
In addition to eleven days of savings (including 50 percent off Bioshock Infinite and Hotline Miami for less than $3 today), eight-hour, community-driven flash sales will see even deeper cuts.
Additionally, last month's launch of Steam Trading Cards is paying off, with eight of thirteen daily deals today offering them. This time out, the unique profile badge for the sale can only be earned by crafting the cards you earn (or acquire from friends).
We're aware that the Steam Store is undergoing some heavy traffic right now. Our suggestion is to come back a little later once things even out a bit.
Our TakeThe Steam Sale continues to offer absurd bargains for PC gamers. This discount season has come out of the gate strong with great prices on Bioshock Infinite, Hotline Miami, Defiance, Don't Starve, Endless Space and others. Don't forget to vote in the flash sales if there's something big you've been hoping to nab for very little.

The server once again can't take it
For those unfamiliar with Steam summer sales, don't get a game until its on daily deal or flash sale or the last day. It will get cheaper!
And Gabe said "let there be sales" and it was good
The Steam Store is experiencing some heavy load right now. Please try again later."

Been waiting a LONG time for this! Can't wait to see some of the great deals to pop up :3
Vote for Dishonored!
Nice! I'll be keeping my eye on Tomb Raider during this.
Oh yeah, Steam Summer Sale! Time for my wallet to cry!
My wallet is weeping in a corner right now.
Love that Steam sales have become these huge phenomenons among the gaming community twice a year (sometimes more, didn't last year they have a fall sale!?) PC gaming ftw!

First Star Citizen and now this... stay strong bank account, you might make it through this.
