    Would have been good if they had added the option to trade games I have received several copies of (think indie packs with 6 games, 2 of which I already owned - Which happens a lot!)

    Completely agree. There is no loss of sale and there could be boosts if the person who got the gift is encouraged to by the pack.

    It's a WIN - WIN situation.

    I may have misunderstood but i thought that is what they have done due to this line in the article "Any game you’ve purchased from the store as a gift, or received as an extra copy, can be traded to other users. They can be used to trade for other gifts too"

    Currently i just give my extra copy's away to friends but i do have a couple spare copy's of games that all my other friends have or do not want so this might be quite useful.

    They do already, it's just on a very minute selection of games.

    I find it a bit irritating that they don't to be honest. If I buy a pack of 4 games, someone saying that I don't get the 4th one because I already bought one a few weeks ago seems a bit insulting.
