Steam Summer Sale
Is it true the Steam Summer Sale is going to start in a week or so, so that it doesn't clash with the Dota 2 International 4?
July!

Maybe, there won't be a sale any more now that publishers can set their own sales?

There are probably a dozen threads on this already so don't be surprised if this one gets locked or deleted. Just do a search next time, or google it.

They don't publish the dates of the sales because it would cannabalize sales up until that point.

Last year there was a Spring sale (just indie titles) in March, Summer Sale (most titles) in July, Halloween sale (horror titles), Autumn sale (don't remember) around Thanksgiving, and the Winter sale around Christmas.
And you have the constant sales as well. The daily title sale (posted at 1 p.m. est lasting 48 hours), Mid-week madness sales (I think tue-thr @1 p.m.)), Weekend sales (thurs-monday @ 1 p.m.), Week long sales (Monday 1 p.m.-next monday @1 p.m.). Also publishers are free to make sales at any point they wish ( I believe the minnimum length is 48 hours though it could be 24).

Again,
They don't publish the dates of the sales because it would cannabalize sales up until that point. Summer Sales have been a tradition and since all their major competitors have started doing them it would be foolish for them to not, as people would gravitate towards those other retailers even if they are just buying steam keys. Only Valve and some publishers know. The best thing to go on is history which suggests some time around mid-July.

Heh...I know, I was making a joke. Guess I should have put a sarcasm tag or something.

Hah yeah. In these forums especially it's sometimes hard to tell between sarcasm and people being idiots or only hearing what they want to hear.
