I'd love to trade for CoD 4. I've got two disc copies of it, but damn if I didn't need a Steam version. Fuck. Okay. Let me have a look at what I've got to trade.

Sort of? I think he's saying that he has these games to gift and he'll gift them to anybody who will gift him back.

Yes, game trading is possible on Steam and has been for a long while. It's not even gift-swapping; it's literally a trade interface where both things are exchanged at the same time. Any games that support Steam Inventory (TF2, Dota 2, Portal 2, SMNC, etc.) can also have their items traded cross-game or for other games on Steam. For example, I could trade a TF2 hat and a Dota 2 hat for a SMNC skin and a copy of Darksiders II, if I were so inclined.

That's awesome!

I don't have a gaming PC (it's a Linux laptop what I'm using now), but it's something good to know for the future. Thanks for the info.

What is the criteria for games allowed to be traded? I'm assuming once they are installed they are no longer eligible right?

@Snowfelhake: I've got a tradeable copy of Nexuiz, willing to trade it for COD4.

@BongChilla: Yes. They go to a separate Steam Inventory to be traded; once they are added to an account they cannot be traded. Also, a Steam account must be "verified" to trade games, which happens 30 days after the accounts first store purchase.

@BongChilla: Only games in your inventory are tradeable. Games you've purchased yourself and added to your library aren't tradeable. Only games you've purchased specifically for gifting/trading, or games you've recieved to your inventory free via a promotion are able to be traded.

I've got a bunch of dumb shit if anyone doesn't already own Portal, the Orange Box, and Portal 2. Also Abe's Odyssey. Are those even things worth anything to anyone?

#18 Posted by Cslaw (217 posts) -

@AlexW00d: trade renegade ops or frozen synapse for Abe's Odyssey?

#19 Posted by AlexW00d (6238 posts) -
