Awesome article. Valve really seems to "get" that making the game great for your users involves being expert at things like economics. Especially when digital currency is being integrated much more into our games.

Plus getting an email like that from Gabe is awesome too.

That is actually very cool. I didn't realize any of the valve games used digital currency though. I know a lot of their games have micro transactions (for example: TF2) using real money, but which of their games use digital currency?

I think it's a new thing they are looking into? Seems like they want to merge their games and do new stuff.

Dude, that's a really rad article!

You could even use the steam trades. if someone plays 10 hours of tf2 to get the materials for a new hat, many off those hats can be traded to games like spyro knights.

That should be the valve currency btw: hats.
