Could this be Valves one of 3 big surprises? Maybe THIS is the reason for the Steam wallet to exist.

Why don't they allow users to sell their games to other Steam users and take a percentage for themselves and the developer? They'd make a lot of money off second-hand sales that way as well and the developer would be happy as well.

I mean, a person looking for deals probably wouldn't pay full retail anyways.

I don't understand how a trade-in system would work. Maybe Steam would take the license and transfer it to another person at full price without getting another from the dev? :confused:

But surely the dev wouldn't agree to that.

It's not Valve, it was just a rumor.

From the Steam Forum Thread

Update: Valve's Doug Lombardi tells Big Download of Pachter's statements, "Untrue. We've never actually met with Mr. Pachter."

It'd be nice... I have a TON of steam games I never play and probably never will... a lot are from the big game packs that I bought just to play 1 or maybe 2 games in the pack of like 10 or more games.. the Eidos pack was enormous and I bought it just for 2 games haha.

:(
