Hhh... I would be willing to sell 90% of my entire steam catalog even just for 5 per game, or even less

I can't even imagine Steam with resale functionality. I don't even know how they could operate unless they took a healthy cut of each sale. After the first week, no one would buy new because on Steam it would be identical to used, just more expensive, and with that big of a user base, there would always be "used" available.

Just because they are obligated to let you sell your used copy doesn't mean they need to facilitate that at all. Then again, if they don't someone else might do it for them using some gamestop style model.

I never buy used though, as it's nice to know at least SOME of that money is making it back to the people who actually made the game.
