Hey folks, this article appeared today on PC Gamer. I would like to ask for some help. Does this mean that games purchased from resellers such as G2Play, etc are affected? Any information would be appreciated. Cheers


"Steam gift trading is changing, which could be important if that's a thing you do.

First things first: general gifting remains the same. You can buy a game directly for a person, who can then redeem and access it immediately.

Gifts purchased and placed in the purchaser's inventory, however, will be subject to a thirty day wait before that game is available to trade. Here's what Valve has to say about the new rule:

"We've made this change to make trading gifts a better experience for those receiving the gifts. We're hoping this lowers the number of people who trade for a game only to have the game revoked later due to issues with the purchaser's payment method."

Essentially, Valve is trying to reduce instances of charge-back scams and similar—where games were bought with a credit card; traded on, potentially multiple times; and then charged back, forcing Valve to revoke the original game."

G2Play obviously pays lesser prices where they are based, and then sells the gifts as a profit.

They are not into the credit card scam thing.
