Valve has made some changes to the Steam Gifting process. Basically you can no longer gift to email or gift to one’s inventory. Instead, it’s a direct exchange from buyer to receiver. In a post on their steam blog, the company breaks down the new system changes. The first being gift scheduling. Buy a gift months in advance and it will be delivered to your friend on time, every time. Next up are declined gifts. The old system would put declined gifts back to the giver’s inventory and it would remain on their bill. Now if someone declines a gift, they can click decline and the gift giver will receive a refund. Finally, is cross country gifting. No more worrying if a gift to a friend will work or not in their country, gifts sent will always work on the receivers account. If there is a large difference in pricing between 2 countries, gifting won’t be available and you’ll know before purchasing.
In eSports news, the NBA’s 2K e league is set to start next year in 2018. Earlier this year, the league only expected 12 teams to join the project, but now a total of 17 out of the 30 teams have chosen to participate. Some teams on the list include the Cavs, Mavericks, Warriors and Raptors to name a few. But some of the other big names are missing like the Lakers, Spurs and Bulls. It’s hard to imagine why some teams haven’t opted in yet on the e-league. If the 2k league ends up being as popular as other esports, it could be quite a lucrative opportunity.
