Valve has "no plans to change" despite Euro ruling

Steam will not introduce any functionality to allow gamers to sell on products they buy digitally, it has said.

We don’t have any plans to change,” was the stark response given (twice) to PCGamesN by Valve’s business development director Jason Holtman.

The comments come following last week’s revelation that the European Court of Justice had ruled that consumers who purchase software must be free to re-sell it despite regardless of its licence terms – and crucially, regardless of whether it is a physical or digital purchase.

The news caused a considerable stir in the industry, with some observers even predicting that outlets such as Steam and Origin would have to alter their business models to facilitate the changes.
