If you have any games you to trade, it would show up here.
okay sweet thanks, and yeah I already had BFBC2 account from EA downloader from when the game first came out and I bought BFBC2 on steam when it was on sale so CDkey is unused.

Wait, does this means the "lost" copies you'd lose when buying something you already have are no longer lost, but rather put into an inventory with a trading system set up for it?

Say you buy Company A game pack and get Game A, Game B, Game C, Game D, and Game E, but already have Game C and Game E. As it currently is, you'd simply "lose" the two extra copies. Does this mean you get them in an inventory for trades and whatnot?

If so, this is better news than the trading system most people want in my opinion. Losing games due to already having them on that account is one of the biggest flaws with Steam right now in my opinion. If this isn't what this means, then boo hoo, Steam's biggest flaw (or one of them) remains.

Probably not. It's the contracts with the publishers that prevent the gifting of extras. And if extras weren't part of the equation, the packs would cost more.

Oh yeah, you could also trade TF2 in-game items for gifted games too.

Does Steam Trading mean I can sell my used games?

No,
Stopped there. Worthless, piss poor update.

Recently a friend bought me the Overlord pack on Steam. I already have Overlord 1, the other two were new to me. Steam ripped me off and I didn't get an extra copy of Overlord 1 to gift.

Steam can suck it.

Heeeeey....I just realised I've got a bunch of tf2 crap due to valve handing out a tf2 item with every single game these days.

Imma go ahead and trade 'em

We should start a steam thread for trades. I'd be interested in trading some tf2 crap.

No and no.

Wrong assumptions.

For a guy that actively participates in the tf2 trading scene its easy to understand why they did that.

Many people have been trading games for tf2 items and also real cash via paypal for items and of course many scammers evolved that took the items first and never gifted the games which caused all the scammed people to come crying to valve.

This new feature's main purpose is to prevent these kind of scams, the rest such as gifted game for gifted game are just additional sweets
I'm pretty certain they'll add a possibility to trade for steam wallet cash aswell.
