Man sells Steam account for $1,000 on eBay

Has this ever happened before? Just like the headline says, a man put his Steam account for sale on eBay, essentially beating the system and finding a way to sell secondhand games via the digital distribution platform. It appears to have worked out very well, too.

139 games were up for grabs, and somebody actually bit, stumping up $1,000 for the "Buy It Now" price. It seems that the seller, "dave311freak," has inspired some other hopeful Steam merchants, as two more Steam accounts have popped up for sale, albeit with significantly less to offer. Dave, for his part, said he wanted to sell the account to spend more time with his family and less time playing games. For $1,000, you can take your family somewhere pretty cool.

In any case, this is an interesting new development in the realm of digital distribution. One of the big problems people have with digital games is the inability to sell them when you're finished. Seems this chap has found the perfect loophole.
