Think about it, this will also the start of the account ban prevention, right now they can disable your account and you will lose all your games

Therefore i think that would conflict because its attached to that persons account. So steam would have to work with rockstar on something. So this selling digital content thing will take some time and is not that easy.

It is that easy, all rockstar and everyone have to do is support license transfer, there are so many ways to do this. Unlocking is easier than locking

how is it easy? do you see everyone supporting that at the same time? You act like all they have to do is turn on switch and its done.

It'll also be the start of selling of banned CD keys rolleyes.gif

Unless Steams system is tied into the game system that some games are doubly tied to such as mentioned above ( steam and a game site or whatever ), if someone gets their account and therefor key banned from the company then steam would need to know about that and react accordingly.


This kind of change can only happen from the top down. Not the bottom up. The whole "licencing" agreement needs a rewrite, then publishers need to adhere to it, then distributors need to cooperate with publishers.

There is a lot more factors your just looking past. Your pretty much talking fantasy at this point.

hmmmmm well tell steam to start selling their games because they are breaking the law. I'm pretty sure that going to be the same thing for what your saying.

It's like buying a car with a bowl of soup in the glove box, and I can eat that soup but if I want to drive the car to the soup store then I have to pay for a gym membership, and then the terrorists have won.

You run that risk with anything you buy used, and yet eBay and the Overclock Marketplace seem to make it work. Valve isn't doing the selling, that's between individual users, so whatever third-party marketplace popped up to support this would account for that somehow. Not Valve's issue at all.

Consumers will just have to be careful on what they are buying, just like everything else, you don't just buy anything in ebay right? You check seller stats, etc.
Or don't buy used games at all,

All I have to say is I don't see this selling digital goods to others happening anytime soon. At least for steam.
