As I've said in recent sale threads, they have to get permission from the devs for sale pricing,

I'm not sure that's true? I remember an interview with Gabe a few years ago where he said that as long as they give the publisher their normal cut, they can put stuff on sale as much as they want?

Anyone else remember that?
Yes I'm sure its true, and there's been past discussions about it on blues. Steam even says on its page about it that its up to the publishers. If it was the way you said, why don't we see things like the latest CoD going on sale frequently on steam? Or stuff like anno going on a good sale?
