The winter sale always seem to start really late. You only get a few days to do any shopping before Christmas and the new year come around. You'd think they'd schedule it to start like a week before then.

I'd imagine Steam banks on the idea of getting more purchases from people who received gift cards or cash as holiday presents, as opposed to just purchases from people buying from the sale, so it would make sense for most of the sale's time frame to be after people would have received those gifts.

Regardless, I can predict with 99.9% certainty that we will see an uptick in "this steam sale sucks" threads shortly after the launch of the sale.

Actually it's generally the last two weeks of the year which is why I suspected Tuesday originally. It's starting even later this year.

Black friday was only like one month ago, the new sale may as well be a bit late.

Wish it started the same time as all the other storefronts so I don't have to wait. I am tempted to just buy some Talisman expansions on GMG, but GMG uses USD prices so if I convert them to CAD prices, I am probably not saving anything at all. I bought some on GG and was going to buy more yesterday, but they took them off sale :/ I wasn't aware they were going to do that.

What's there to buy though?

I'm likely getting Shadow of War or Wolfenstein II, maybe both, I dunno. Won $50 in a contest on CE so just going to get a couple things I wouldn't have gotten otherwise, anyway.
This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
