From past history:

In 2010, the sale started on June 24th.

In 2011, the sale started on June 30th.

Damnit, where the hell did I leave that table?

that's not a table thread!  jeebus Bull, don't poke the angsty mule.

Always been intrigued by Analogue, but not at $20.  Will give it a look at $6.

Grabbed that Space Marine game too...looked kinda cool.

It wouldn't surprise me to see no Midweek deal and them start the summer sale from tomorrow through the weekend, but again, that's just wild speculation and wishful thinking.

now some people are claiming the 5th, while others are clinging to the 12th.  there's a massive Summer Sale thread in the Steam Forums, and it's kind of fun to go there each day after 1pm EST to watch the QQing  icon_twisted

interesting theory about the sale start date:

Quote
This is going to sound crazy. It probably is, but then again, ARGs and scavenger-hunt clues get pretty esoteric sometimes. If Valve was trying to subtly hint at when the sale might occur, they would probably do it with the kind of bizarre moon-logic that Sierra On-Line used to use in games like King's Quest IV. Put simply, my hypothesis is that the date of the upcoming sale is being hinted at in the representative image for each Daily Deal game.

Running through the logic in my head, I feel like Boyd piecing together an elaborate pattern from disparate sources. Nonetheless, here goes:

    Most of the Steam community expected that the Summer Sale would follow the pattern of the previous two Summer Sales - Launching on the last Thursday in June. The sale which went up instead was for Analogue: A Hate Story. A few people focused on the clock, but for purposes of my mad theory, look instead at the girl's ponytail. There are seven segments to her ponytail.

    The next daily deal was Midnight Mysteries Collection. I'm having a hard time fitting this one into the theory, but I can see one possible justification: The clock face shows two minutes to twelve: 12 divided by 2 is six. Admittedly, this is a bit of a stretch. (And no, there are more than six fireflies or whatever they are - I count at least eight)

    The next daily deal was Governor of Poker 2: Premium Edition. Note the $5 chip in the lower right corner of the image.

    Next came Zombie Driver - Four blades protrude from the front of the vehicle.

    Yesterday's deal was Space Ark - The rocket has 3 windows.

    Today's deal is Legendary, which shows a human fighting several monsters. There are two gryphons.

The pattern (if there is one) forms a countdown, indicating Thursday of this week - which, by my understanding, is when major events generally happen on Steam anyway.

Yes, it's reaching. Yes, it's based primarily on wishful thinking and shaky reasoning. Sure, I'm probably wrong. But it still makes a weird, "throw the dehydrated water canister to kill Orat" kind of sense.

If the pattern holds, I would expect a game tomorrow which emphasizes the number 1 - Maybe Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Alpha Prime, or Lone Survivor. In fact, Lone Survivor would seem more probable to me, since it fits the pattern of a lower-profile, indie-developed game which won't generate a lot of excitement if it goes on sale (Since it was included in the most recent Humble Bundle).

That's it. That's my daily dose of crazy.
