Steam Winter Sale rumored to begin December 18th via PayPal e-mail

An official e-mail sent by the Japanese branch of popular digital wallet service PayPal has supposedly revealed the dates for the upcoming Steam Winter Sale.

According to the aforementioned PayPal Japan e-mail, the Steam Winter Sale is set to start on December 18th, however there is no mention of how long it will last. Judging by previous Steam sales, it will most likely last about a week.

Steam Winter Sale to Begin December 18th?



You can view a picture of the PayPal Japan e-mail below, as well as a translation of its text below:

Steam Winter Sale PayPal Japan

Rough translation (courtesy of users at /r/Games): 

“Big Christmas Sale, up to 75% off! (From 12/18).

Steam’s entertainment platform, select from a variety of games, over 3500! PC, MAC, Linux, mobile, and even television.

Soon shopping.”

Valve has not yet confirmed the Steam sale dates outed by PayPal, or made an official announcement of their own, but PayPal has been fairly accurate in the past when it comes to Steam sale dates.

With that in mind, make note that this is not an official announcement by Valve, and may or may not be accurate. Regional differences (time zones, number of games on sale, discounts, et cetera) between Japanese, European, and Western territories may also apply.
