It's not Christmas yet. It's not even December. But according to a VG247 report, PayPal let it slip that the Steam sales are going to start this week, so get ready.
PayPal's email told customers to stock up on Steam wallet codes, because the sale was due to start on the 26th, and end on December 1st.
It seems like the Steam holiday period is becoming more and more like the US holiday period -- it starts earlier every year. Weekly sales, daily sales, 8-hourly sales...

For those who've been through (read: survived) a few, the same games do start to repeat themselves over and over, so we'll be keen to see which of this year's releases will be severely discounted. It was another great year for games, both triple-A and indie, so here's hoping
Of course, it's worth noting that "sale culture" might not be the best thing for PC gaming. But while they're happening, you might as well get amongst it.
