Steam to offer discounts on game bundles for titles already owned

Bit Tech writes Valve has changed the price policy of its new Steam game bundles, to ensure you don't pay twice for games you already own. A very good idea!
There has always been a catch, however: if a player already owned one or more titles in a bundle, they would pay the exact same price as someone who was buying all the games for the first time.

According to an announcement made to developers and obtained by PCGamesN, that system is going the way of the dodo. Instead, gamers will see the price of a bundle drop according to the number of games they already own that are contained within. The first bundle to feature the new pricing system, Headup Games Complete Bundle, demonstrates how it'll work: the discounted cost of a bundled game is automatically removed from the bundle if it already appears in your library.
