Very interesting piece. It gives you some food for thought.

From a simple point of view, I think if you can sell a physical item (providing it is not obtained illegally) then you should be able to sell a digital item. You bought it, it's yours you should be able to do what you want with it. Of course the reality is very different. Even on Steam do you actually own what you paid for? I don't think you do.

I understand that mate, but is it right?

ever since the earliest EULA/TOS you have only ever owned a licence that was non transferable, just until recently it could never be enforced, so nothing has changed other than the security software.

More over-engineered ,expensive tat. Look at what all the E-sports Pro's use... Something relatively cheap and very simple.Reply

I can't talk about this particular model, you may be right, but I do love my R.A.T 7, although I appreciate they're not to everyone's taste.

In the length of time it took you to type your question you could have just read the article.


"If you already own BioShock, BioShock 2, or Minerva’s Den on Steam, the remastered version for the corresponding title will automatically show up in your Steam library as a separate game."

I didn't feel like reading at the stoplight. Anyway you answered and someone always does, everyone wins. I get my answer and you get to be the know it all.

You're supposed to eat the cows. If we didn't they'd be everywhere. In the library, in the Doctors surgery, in the swimming baths. Total chaos.
