Speaking to NowGamer, analyst Michael Pachter has hinted that Valve may be about to offer Steam users the options to trade in their game licenses for credit. Full details here.
I doubt the developers and publishers on Steam will like this very much.
I think if publishers get a cut they will agree to it, I could put a game up for $20 on Steam, Steam offers a resale key for $30, publisher takes $10 on a cd-key swap, $20 put into my Steambucks account. I would imagine any resale title would require X amount of months before this is possible to try to maximize profits. However, I think weekend deals are just as effective for aged titles, so....not sure.
this would be great
no worries for wear and tear either :)
