The lights are on
Valve announced starting September 5 its digital store Steam will begin selling the first set of software titles. Valve wouldn't name any of the available software just yet, only saying they range from "creativity to productivity."
"The 40 million gamers frequenting Steam are interested in more than playing games," says Mark Richardson at Valve. "They have told us they would like to have more of their software on Steam, so this expansion is in response to those customer requests."
Many of the titles at launch include Steamworks features such as easy installation, automatic updating, and the ability to save
your work to your personal Steam Cloud space, Valve says.
I would prefer they continue just publishing games... But anyway, Steam is the best platform for gaming out their, and I guess it can be even better.
That's incredibly vague. ;-)
Woohooo :D nice!
IT HAS BEGUN! I for one salute our new Valve overlords.

This seemed like the next logical step for Steam, curious as to what we'll see them getting into next.
They better not go the MS route with it.
Will being on Steam keep me either creative or productive? Lol.
gotta love steam
Utilizing their hugely impressive digital distribution network for more than games... only makes sense.
This dosen't really mean much to me.. Steam is ok for gaming but being mainly a console gamer it won't affect me either way.
