Games "A snippet of code in the Steam digital distribution platform has revealed that Valve may be planning to let users easily share their games with friends in the future. The Verge has verified the code's authenticity, which was originally spotted by a member of the NeoGAF gaming forum; the code references a 'shared game library' and a notification that would alert a user when their games are currently in use by a borrower." This would change the, uh, game.

?? Why no more midweek madness sales on Steam? I don't get your reasoning there ...

I think those won't go away, BUT game lending ,now that the Xbox1 won't support it, won't come either.

Learn how the reply chain works.

The point is that a completely online store with no disks and no lending has let Steam do these type of deals which with Microsoft caving in won't happen now.
