Thumbs up Valve considering game trade-ins


Could this be Valves one of 3 big surprises? Maybe THIS is the reason for the Steam wallet to exist.
Windows 7 Pro 64 OS * i7 2600K @4.5Ghz * ASUS P8P67 PRO (B3) * 4GB G.Skill Ripjaws X *
EVGA GTX 670 FTW Edition * Cooler Master HAF 932

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?

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."
