Steam Adds Gift Purchasing

Just a few months ago, one of the largest updates in Steam's three-year history introduced a set of new community features to the millions of gamers connecting to Steam each week. Today Steam introduces the ability to purchase any game in its growing collection and send it as a gift to anyone in the world. To send a gift, customers simply select from hundreds of leading games on Steam and then indicate that the purchase is a gift at checkout. Within minutes, an e-card is delivered directly to the recipient's inbox. If the recipient is new to Steam, they'll receive everything they need to get started. For more information, visit Steam.Source: Steam

But you couldnt specifically buy games solely as a gift, you could only gift the games that you already had in the orange box.

I hate how you cant sell the gifts. Its pretty stupid that you cant...I mean, I purchased the Orange Box and now I have an extra copy of HL2 and HL2: Ep 1 which I cant sell :(. I originally purchased the HL2 and HL2: Ep 1, so why cant I sell it!:mad::banghead:
