The only way to acquire these items will be via trading. People will use the Steam Market to do this, as it'll be the most convenient way to get items. Gabe gets a wider swimming pool.

didn't people say the same thing when the hats were added to the game in the first place
Well, to be fair I think some people had their PSN accounts tied to their sperm numbers and now they can't have children.

why. what does this possibly add to the game.

It's probably just valve doing tests to see how people react, again...

But this time it's annoying because it might actually affect some people negatively, instead of people either being interested or not affected at all. Someone browses through the hats to see one he likes...

-Oh, I like this hat, I'll pay the ref and the little rest for it
-That's the old price. We're now selling it for one bajillion dollars. Paypal?

If I wear one of those hats after that, would I just get spammed with trade requests? '>_>

-Sup, I see you have that limite-- I mean, that crappy old hat. Wanna trade it for a laser wep?
-*Insert any kind of denial here*
-Okay. 2 laser weps, you *swear word*

Oh, and let's get prepared for all the "FFFUUU I JUST TRADED/CRAFTED THAT ONE OUT" comments. I'm not really happy with all this, and they're probably going to do that with more hats later, too...
There are three types of people in the world: people that can count, and people that can't.

I'm laughing hard right now. I don't know why.

I hope they come out in 2 weeks and say this is a joke, just so we can laugh at the traders who have stocked up
