Come on, how could we not include the Team Fortress reference? Steam, for those that may not know, is largest PC gaming client on the market. Owned by Valve and our Master Race Padre Gabe Newell, it's one of the most accessible ways to grow that title library at the drop of a hat.
Their quarterly sales are also infamous due to the insane amount of price slashing that happens, even on highly coveted AAA titles. With the younger members of the gaming community being out of school for their Summer shenanigans, yeah - the sound of weeping is going to be deafening.
The June 21st date also means that E3 will be all wrapped up, so brace yourselves. Between new title pre-orders going live and prior games being discounted in lieu of new revelations, the Summer Sale will be both a blessing and a bank-breaking curse. Such is the burden of gamers, we are the true champions.
