Haha, I saw what you did there Sepharo you cheeky bastard you.
Still, I have to say, Gabe really sounds like he's deliberately avoiding addressing the issue. If it's due to ignorance, I don't know that I'm okay with that, however complex the law may be. This should have been the first thing Valve considered long and hard (Huh huh huh!
) before ever starting the Steam venture.
I think it more likely Gabe is tiptoeing around the answer because it's not one most people are going to like.
And besides we all know the real answer is that you don't own the games. That's always been the case.
Exactly. Steam is nothing new when it comes to the concept of not owning your games. The difference only comes in to play when one compares the difference of the medium by which the game is delivered. The disc will work indefinitely while the revocation of the same license (for whatever reason) that the disc provides can actually be enforced effectively on a service like Steam. But the concept remains the same.This comment was edited on Feb 21, 2012, 00:19.
