Valve Denies Steam Trade-in Plans

A post on NowGamer quotes Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter from an interview talking about the possibility that Valve is working on a way to allow game trade-ins through Steam (thanks Kotaku). Says Pachter: "Steam gives gamers enough other stuff so that they donít resent the fact they canít trade in their games. And you know, name all the Steam games that youíve purchased that youíve traded back in to somebody else for credit. Steamís about to let you do that supposedly, you know like trade and exchange, but theyíre going to take a fee from it." We contacted Valve for comment on this and received the following response from Doug Lombardi: "Untrue. We've never met with Mr. Pachter."

So what are all those great sales then? Valve can't force companies to lower their prices but Valve sure as hell does so itself. Also free weekends.

Shut up and fuck off with the sales, kthx . The guy you quoted is 100% correct. Valve (and other publishers) first promised HUGE savings from going from manly box format to DVD box format and then again going from DVD boxed format to digital, well, and the simple matter of the fact is that the fucking savings never ever happened.

Sure, some Steam sales (which only happen like a couple times a year or MONTHS or YEARS after a game's original release) sometimes aren't too shabby for older titles to complete your collection but Steam really isn't an option for new games unless you're a retarded Valve fanboi who feels like making major donations to Gabe's ever growing FAT ASS is the way to go.
