Considering how secretive Valve can be ("Half Life 3," anyone?), we're surprised that someone from the company would leak such big news so carelessly. Why not just announce it ahead of time? Strange.

What's more, a Steam payment partner based in Russia has indicated that the Steam Summer Sale will indeed start tomorrow, according to a report from PCGamer. Accurate or not? We shall see.
