The Steam Summer Sale is a big deal each year, revealing some tremendous saving on popular games for players, which likely generating a ton of extra revenue for Valve and developers in sales that wouldn't normally happen. This year's sale has yet to be officially announced, but a PayPal tweet may have stolen some launch thunder from Valve.
The UK Paypal Twitter account revealed that the sale is scheduled to start on June 22 at 6 p.m. British Standard Time, which equates to 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET. The tweet also revealed a discount for PayPal users, which could equate to about $5 if the UK discount gets applied in the States. A reddit user leaked a similar date last month from the Steamworks developers group.

Who in the world could possibly have predicted that there would be a steam sale more or less at the same time there has been a sale every year for the last 10+ years.
