I don't see how this pushes devs to push out more freemium games. there is too much competition in that market and we know people are willing to shell out $50 still for a new game.
if the digital distributors are smart they will become ebays and take a percentage of the resale market.
sure it will drive costs down, but it won't hurt Steam who decide what price to allow in the first place. Now this is taken out of their hands and given to a 3rd party owner.
Since a digital game is essentially a zero cost product the market will drive the price of the game, the distribution channels will take a percentage, lower prices, more gamers, market increases, win-win.
