Team Fortress 2 Store
I've only recently started getting into TF2 and only noticed the in game store. Thought I'd have a browse at the items in there and I have to say I'm shocked at the cost of some of the items!!! £6.99 for a weapon? £4.99 for a hat?! Are they having a laugh? And are people actually purchasing items at that price? Seems like stupid money to me. I saw one collection on sale, was meant to be £149.99 down to £59.99!
Wish Valve put as much effort into developing and improving their other games (especially L4D2) then they do with TF2!
