Quick Question, 4-pack

If I already own the game and I purchase a 4-pack, that means I can give out 4 games as gifts over steam right? Already owning the game won't mess with that?

I believe that the deal with four packs is that you have to take one of them. Even if you already have the game you will still only have 3 to give out.

Not true. If you own the game and you buy a 4-pack, then you get to send that 4-pack to a friend. He/she will have to send the 3 other copies to other friends.

Oh, they must have changed it.. I remember you only getting 3 copies at one time.

I remember that you could not purchase fourpacks when you already had the game, but seems like that has changed.

they fixed it. any double copies of a game you get are automatically converted to a steam gift. so yes you get 4 copies to give to friends if you already own the game.

Really? So if I were to purchase something like an entire developer's catalog that went on sale, I'd get any of the games that I already own as gifts?

Used to be tough luck if you already owned a copy..

Turns out this isn't true. I ended up having to get the 4-pack refunded.

This is how it works, which is kind of confusing.

It tells you that extra copies are only given when explicitly stated.
-> No extra copy from a 4 pack since a 4 pack always gives one copy to yourself.

Ah, I see it now. Was text searching for "4 pack" instead of "four pack".

I already knew that though, since the support guy told me the same.
