Counter-Strike Free Market

A new Steam Message (thanks Frans) offers word on how Adam Smith is being put in charge of the price of items in Counter-Strike: Source in the next update to the shooter. The Counter-Strike Weapons Market Page and Pricing Algorithm Page have more details, and here's word:
We're finally ready to talk in more specific terms about the coming changes to Counter-Strike weapon prices.

Most of the weapons and equipment in Counter-Strike still have the same prices today as they did when the game was first released. We at Valve know we're not alone in thinking that some of the prices in the game have never been exactly what they should be. (Uh, night-vision?) But rather than tweaking the values ourselves, we thought we'd let you decide. Coming soon in Counter-Strike: Source is a new system that sets the prices of what you can buy based on, well, what people are buying. This means that each week all of the items in Counter-Strike will have different prices based on what people purchase. We've setup a webpage with more information on how it works, including what the prices will be when we turn this feature on.

I would think that you would be able to turn this off if you want. If for no other reason than that the leagues will need it.
