I would be interested in seeing how valve would respond to that question.

Now that doesn't make any legal sense whatsoever. Congratulations, you have made the dumbest statement I have ever seen or heard anybody make.

Wait a minute...now THIS is the dumbest statement I have ever seen or heard anybody make. Are you stuck on stupid son? What the f*ck broke in your head? Maybe you should try banging it against a wall a few times, see if that'll knock something loose.

According to your logic, it would also be a requirement that when products go down in cost over time, or if the manufacturer charges different prices in different regions (which is very common BTW) the manufacturer is guilty of a bait and switch, and is thus required to refund the price difference that people paid when they first bought the product. Doesn't work that way. Try what I mentioned above and maybe you'll figure it out.
