Whenever Steam is sold off for $$ (and it will)

With the money it's making and the funding it provides Valve, why on earth would they do that? Your tinfoil is showing.

Who would want it, anyway? GameStop? Best Buy? That's about it, and neither is too eager to get into this area just yet as it will erode their (already dying) core business. They're interested, in the way Blockbuster should have been interested in Netflix, but nowhere near interested enough to pay the enormous price tag.

The publishers aren't all that interested because they know it would represent a conflict of interest to other publishers and almost immediately lose value when it stops getting products as readily. That means they're interested, but again not willing to pay that enormous price tag.
