Valve Surpasses 13 Million Users

Quote:
"We've approached the development of Steam the same way we treat our online games; we release something we've tested, we internalize the feedback, and then we release new features and functionality based upon the feedback received," says Gabe Newell, president and co-founder of Valve. "In Steam's case, we have millions of customers who are gamers and dozens of customers who are developers and publishers. In the past year, we've added over 100 new titles from third parties, grown to over 13 million active accounts, and introduced new features such as Guest Passes and Free Weekends. This growth has taught us a lot and inspired many additional features and services that we'll be releasing later this year."
Pretty awesome actually

Its something Valve made. Its a few things in one. You can subscribe to it and buy games from the steam website, or connect to it to register your games such as Half life 2 etc for multiplayer and automatic game patches/updates. Its a great system.

http://www.steampowered.com/v/index.php

Roam around it if you like. Theres a shop with a list of games somewhere.

I wonder what will happen with Steam if Live Anywhere becomes a standard.

Considering you have to pay for Live, I think its going to be massively ignored.

yes it's free, but the games you buy off of it isn't. When you buy a game though, you can always re-download it with that steam name and like Alucard said, it's a great system.
