Valve Software's Steam platform logo

Gabe Newell and the team at Valve have accidentally leaked the date for the start of Steam’s summer sale, according to PC World, which reports that it will be June 11, 2015.

Now that seems shady, but it was the “official” page for Valve, so there is some credibility there BUT (and this is a potential game changer) the date in question is also earlier than normal for the event. Typically, this sale comes around late June and early July and here it would be a couple of weeks early.

If you pay attention to entertainment news headlines even just a little bit, then you’ve noticed the name J.J. Abrams quite often lately. Whether it’s his upcoming mega-sequel Star Trek Into Darkness, the recent announcement that after Trek he’ll hop over to Star Wars Episode VII, or various other bits that may be reported, it’s a name we see often.

Now Abrams is adding to this run in the spotlight and looking to fortify his status amongst the geeks of this world.

At the D.I.C.E. Summit for video game designers and developers in Las Vegas recently, Abrams and Valve Software co-founder and president Gabe Newell announced that they are working on movie adaptations of two massively popular Valve games, Half-Life and Portal.
