Valve have announced the Counter-Strike Weapons Market, a system which will dynamically change the cost of weapons and items based on how many people are buying them:
Starting on October 11th, the prices of weapons and equipment in Counter-Strike: Source will be updated each week based on the global market demand for each item. As more people purchase a certain weapon, the price for that weapon will rise and other weapons will become less expensive.
Interesting change; it will no doubt cause a lot of division in the community, but I have to say it's nice to finally see something slightly fresher appearing in CS: Source.

according to the linux mailing list there will be a cvar to disable dynamic pricing....that should be good news for ppl that still war.

There will be a cvar controlling this new functionality, mp_dynamicpricing, you can disable it if you wish by setting its value to 0.

Haha, despite the fact i dislike CS...this is an interesting idea.
However, including body armour in a dynamic price system is stupid although almost expected with Valve/Steam as it coincides with their policy to have stupid ideas.

I like the idea. Bring something fresh to the game.

Its equivalent to putting a breath mint on a pile of cow s***...
Except CS isn't useful for burning...or is it?

CS is full of retards anyway.
Any halflife based mod is basically full of retards.
Apart from Natural Selection, they're all elitist a*******, not retards.

if this money thing goes to hell, there should be a option to sell weapons that you may pick up on the map. the selling price should increase if there is spare ammo in the gun. eg: Some T gets AWPed, you go and pick up his AK and wait until the end of the round, then sell his super expensive gun, to buy something better than what you originally had.

its just a thought, it would definatly change the way people earn money in the game.

Wonder if maps like Iceworld/gun spawn maps, will mess up the economy.
Also, the gun sell idea isn't bad, however what if you accidentally purchase the wrong gun, bye bye money.
