Default Steam Wallet goes live

Looks like TF2 will be the first to fully implement the payment system, starting a new micro transaction architecture for steam games

http://www.teamfortress.com/mannconomy/FAQ

Quote:
The Steam Wallet has officially been released along with the Team Fortress 2 Mann Co. Store, where players can now purchase items right within TF2.

With Steam Wallet, you can add value to your Steam account using any of the payment methods supported by Steam. Funds in your Steam Wallet may then be used to buy any item available in the Steam store on an in-game store. You can load up your Steam Wallet ahead of time, or wait until checkout. Also, different payment methods can be combined to make a single purchase.

Once you've added funds to your wallet, that money will be used by default for subsequent Steam store purchases. But if you'd prefer to reserve your wallet balance for in-game purchases of Mad Milk, Holy Mackerel and Bushwackas, no problem -- simply select another payment method during checkout. Your wallet funds will be there the next time you're ready to shop at Mann Co., or any other in-game store.

TF2's Mann Co. Store is the first of many upcoming Steamworks in-game stores where Steam Wallet funds can be spent. See the TF2 Mannconomy FAQ for any questions specific to that game. Otherwise, feel free to give the wallet a try for your next Steam purchase, and please let us know what you think.

Full price list: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum....php?t=1450102

Total cost of all items in the store is $359.20

I don't play TF2 anymore but this is one of the lamest things Valve has ever done. You can still get items for free but from what I've been told it takes hundreds of hours.
