Steam adopts a more direct approach on Gifting System

Valve has made some changes to Steam’s Gift System, making it now more straightforward.

Gift to Email and Gift to inventory is being retiring! Now users can buy a game in advance and chose the date to be delivered. All gifts will be delivery on time, Valve guarantees.

For declined gifts, the purchase instead of returning to buyers inventory, it will be refunded.

The Gift System now works easily across countries, but if there’s a big difference on the pricing between countries, the gift won’t take place and the buyer will be notified before checkout.

What do you think about the changes?
