How will that work ?

Will selling be confined to your own country to prevent profiteering over F/X ?
Will there be a cool down period on when you can sell your game after buying ?

Not really sure how this could be implemented given that I don't even really own my games on Steam, I simply pay for an indeterminate amount of time to access the licence to use it.

just read the verdict on Eurogamer- if Valve refuses to abide by the ruling they will get fined 3k Euros a day for 6 months

That is 1/2 million Euros

:lol:

That is peanuts to me - they will pay the fine

It does set a precedent for dominoes to follow suit and other mixed metaphors. :-k
I used to be eVoL but I got better.

Or they'll stop selling in France?

you know what even if HL3 is announced a good majority of people have past caring. Its like when you have a long distance relationship. It never lasts because the promise of "one day" is not good enough when you meet someone else.

While I enjoyed HL2 a lot, I feel like at this point there's nothing they could do that wouldn't make HL3 a disappointment. Too much time has passed, people's expectations have been set too high... and also their nostalgia about HL2 which while a good game seems to have become something extraordinary in a lot of people's minds.

If they're wise they'll just leave the series where it is.

Oh yeah, I lost interest in a Half Life 3 years ago, but then I always considered Half Life 2 to be overrated anyway (it had great world design, but the shooting mechanics were mediocre at best). I'd happily take a Portal 3, but I don't see that happening either.
