Steamy!: Steam to start offering more than game software


In a move that may shock some, Steam announced today that they would begin offering non-gaming software over the service along with their traditional games.  The new software offered will range from creativity to productivity and will integrate the same automatic updates, cloud saving, and  ease of installation that other Steam software enjoys.  The program will begin on September 5th and developers can submit their titles to Steam Greenlight, which will allow people to vote on them.

Is this Steam’s attempt to compete with the Mac App Store?  Or, is it a simple, logical next step in keeping Steam going?  Weigh in with your comments below!
