Valve Launches Steam Community Market Beta

Posted on December 13, 2012 - 11:00am by JCTheGamer


Sell your useless Team Fortress 2 crap for Steam Wallet Funds? HELL YES.

So Valve, being the awesome company they are, has launched a beta for a community market. The market is currently compatible with TF2, though other games will be compatible later. So how does this work? You select an item, pick a selling price, put in the market, and wait for Steam Funds to roll in.

Steam, of course, receives a cut of the pay, but you set your own selling price, which is awesome. It's still in the beta, but it's available to anyone right now. Unfortunately, you can't trade items you got before this (except for Mann Co. Crates). So, what do you think? Is this a smart move like Valve, or will this be like Diablo III's auction house?
