Update: The store now looks to be back online! Enjoy your holiday shopping, gamers.
Original: The holiday season is here, and that means big savings on Steam games…or at least it should. The Steam Winter Sale officially went live yesterday (it will last until 2:00 PM EST on January 2nd), but customers are currently unable to take advantage of all of the great deals. Steam is currently offline for everyone, possibly as a result of increased traffic from the Winter Sale. Valve has not yet issued an official explanation for the downtime, and we haven’t been given any timetable for when we can expect Steam’s services to resume.
