Valve’s Steam is expanding to the general software market outside of gaming. You can expect to see various applications such as photo editing programs become integrated within the platform with automatic updates, cloud storage, and more.
The Software titles coming to Steam range from creativity to productivity. Many of the launch titles will take advantage of popular Steamworks features, such as easy installation, automatic updating, and the ability to save your work to your personal Steam Cloud space so your files may travel with you.
More Software titles will be added in an ongoing fashion following the September 5th launch, and developers will be welcome to submit Software titles via Steam Greenlight.
Valve’s new ambitious initiative begins on September 5th and it will also allow start up software developers to take part in Steam Greenlight.
