Valve Software has kicked off its annual sale and while it doesn't call it a "Black Friday" or "Cyber Monday" sale like others do, it is intended to land on those days for maximum effect. This year's "Steam Exploration Sale" runs from November 26 to December 2 and features discounts and deals on 5,649 games right now.
Ubisoft has warned those potentially picking up mutliplayer racing title The Crew that early reviews should not be trusted thanks to the developer not offering early copies of the game to the press ahead of its launch on December 2nd. The embargo will drop, and access to the game will begin for the press, on launch day.
In a move meant to stifle the activities of Steam code resellers, Valve Software has announced a new policy for gift codes. Going forward you will no longer be able to trade Steam gift codes for at least thirty days, according to Valve. There will be no restrictions on giving these codes away as gifts, as intended.
