On the occasion of its one year Manniversary, Valve has revealed that its user generated content sales system, Mann Co., has been a major earner for its participants.

Valve posted the $2,000,000 bombshell profit tally in an entry on the Team Fortress 2 blog.

To celebrate the Manniversary, Valve is throwing a massive sale which runs until October 17, boasting discounts on a huge range of in-game items including 30 new offerings. Check out the full catalogue for more details.

To aid in the constant replenishment of Mann Co. goods, Valve has also launched the Steam Workshop, where creators can upload new items and receive feedback from comments and ratings.

Team Fortress 2, which went free-to-play earlier this year, was the first Steam title to support micro-transactions.
