    Are there so many Steam loyalists on Eurogamer that they mass downvote anyone who criticizes Steam for also not letting you trade or sell your games?

    Lucky EG's own GetGames lets you trade in and sell games isn't it?

    Oh wait.

    You CAN trade and sell games from your Steam library in the EU! wayneh told me so the other day, and I'm just waiting for him to sell me one of his! \o/

    That's why there's the downvoting, obviously.

    If anyone actually thinks of themselves as a loyalist to a video game distribution platform then they should kill themselves as soon as possible.

    Zing!

    Although EG isn't involved with the running of GetGames and hasn't been for ages.

    My mistake, I must have misunderstood:

    'Get Games is the PC Download service from Eurogamer.'

    How?
    I don't know!

    He said it was illegal not to, though. He didn't get back to me with the details of how he's going to sell a game to me from his Steam library yet, but I'm looking forward to it!

    Let's face it - if wayneh's right, but we couldn't do it, then Steam would be in prison! (Or banned in the EU, I guess..? )

    Can't see where it says that on their homepage.

    Oh, you're right, just spotted it.

    Steam is different, because... well, it's just different. So stop complaining.

    I am looking to acquire a games rental and resale operation.

    I have a feeling thiese announcements are mere bluffs. I want to get in on the ground floor of the lucrative second hand videgame market.

    Ven is Tom. He's just not Mugwum Tom. He's a different Tom. A Champion Tom.

    A BLOODY LIAR TOM!
