I love steam too and was there on day 1 as well. You get the convenience of downloading games without need for discs etc and steam sales but most of my games from steam have drm and you still cant trade used games like console users have had for years. We really have never been able to trade games though which is why we dont notice the lack of ability. Steam isnt bad but I do see the PC gaming sector as more locked down DRM wise then consoles and to me it has been that way for far longer.

It is more locked down, as I said it is a different culture. Hence the backlash when MS tried foisting it on Xbox users who like to share games whilst PC users generally don't (well, not in the swap cartridges freely manner at least. Some certainly "share" but they are an often overemphasised minority).

It's also a necessary minority in the case of some games... The amount of times I've had to acquire a "shared" copy because the version I paid for didn't work properly is ridiculous.

This thread is on the brink of being broken up into a new thread lol.

It's a tangent but still relevant. Ask yourself, what is Steam doing right that MS are doing wrong? The avatar marketplace is a nice start with their overinflated prices compared to the Steam Marketplace set at community-defined prices.
