Remember that crazy idea Valve had of allowing players to trade items across games and games for items? How it all started with that great big Valve class-based FPS turned business model idea incubator, Team Fortress 2? Well, it’s all come to a head across TF2, Portal 2 and Sega F2P MMO, Spiral Knights.
Item trading is out of beta and one million traded items later, you could even call it a success. Valve certainly are. So, go ahead and trade in that battered old TF 2 hat for a brand new copy of Deus Ex that you already have fourty of from the New Year’s bundle and Eidos bundle and Super Bundle Madness Bundle. Not that it matters at all when you realize you’re trading imaginary items you’ve earned in a video game for more video games. Pure, unadulterated madness.
