Nice. So many forums are full of people saying "Finally, my relatives can get me a gift card I'll actually want to use". Post-Christmas sales on Steam are going to absolutely skyrocket with this.

Also, it shows that GameStop aren't as anti-competitive as EA, say. Even as GameStop promote their own digital outlet Impulse, they'll partner with Valve over something like this, which can only benefit both parties.

Edit:

Just read on Gaf "oh god dammit trading in used games for steam cards is genius".

It really is. :D
