Services like Humble Bundle offer a pay-what-you-want service that is beneficial for developers, charities, and consumers. Game Informer has discovered that the PC games digital distributor 7 Entertainment and other sites are taking advantage of this generosity and obtaining Steam keys from Humble Bundles, or other similar services, and illegally reselling them for profit.
Shocking. It's a disgrace to see money being taken from charity, it's good to see someone speak up about this.
Humble Bundle does have some great games however I already own most of the titles from Steam :D Unfortunately a lot of people pay as little as they can, robbing developers and giving hardly anything to charity. I know every little bit helps however I do purchase almost all of my games from developers directly or Steam so a fair amount of money goes back to those who made the game.
this sucks, but there is really no way to get away from it, they allow people to gift steam codes, which some people will try and sell them, they would have to stop gifting which would in return lower sales, because there probably a few who buy extras to gift to friends who maybe dont have the game but they do.
This is why we can't have nice things.
Thus why sales hardly ever happen.
You have to realize when events like Black Friday happen, the first few people in line trying to grab the sale are doing it simply to flip the items.... its sad. Same thing here. Someone does something cool or fans, people line up to profit off it instead.
