Until the 4th of January. These are at least the information we have now, but once the sale starts the end date will be visible on Steam itself.

Its started, but the first haul isn't great as per usual Also the usual heavy load outage of course.

edit:

... also looks like its just another catalog sale, no daily deals. Boooooo, this winter sale is lame.

Current wallet state: Closed

Hope it stays that way. Got to be something special to tempt me at this point, I've got several PS4 games I haven't touched and a steam library full of stuff I haven't even installed.

Seems like the good old '50% is the default' is gone for good. No more flash and daily sales either. I wasn't really waiting for any particular items to go on 75% or more, but this sale is the first one that is really disappointing for me.

Yup :/ I'm getting Road Redemption for sure, but other than that it is a big NO NO NO.

Its a nice sale if you've not stocked up yet on all classic titles as they're all 5 euros or less now. And King's Quest Ep 1 is a flipping euro. Might as well pick it up

I did pickup Just Cause 3 as it was 20 % off, 10 % cheaper then the pre-order discount they had

Of course Gaben and I go WAYYYY back

Stocking up on cheap ass games with trading cards to idle as well.
