It seems even Valve is not immune to the overwhelming greed that is consuming this industry. Another example is Epic Games talking about how to make the game experience less enjoyable for those who buy used games unless they get ANOTHER cut off the top (Does Ford or Toyota get a cut of the sales when you sell your car?) . EA and Ubisoft effectively doing the same with PC games infected with InSecuROM and limited installations . Valve will probably resolve this issue by adjusting the exchange rate on Steam purchased games but it's still sad that it takes 60+ pages on their forum with threats of being reported to the EU commission to make them act. It just feels like they were going to continue gouging EU gamers until someone finally caught on. Very sad and says a lot of the industry in my opinion.
