Regardless of the current state of XBLA Steam is probably very concerned about the next gen XB. Their best bet as far as I can see (and I'm no pro at this ) is to have access to Steam as a default on the new PS and MS consoles. Like Netflix probably will.

Why would they be concerned? Unlike Microsoft they are very adaptive and they already have a thriving digital platform. Getting onto the consoles is just gravy at this point and will be difficult as MS/Sony know that they are a competitor.

A common trick is to change the title and loading screen of Call of Duty and submit it as a new game.

That made me LOL!

XBLA was a big hallway conversation at GDC.
I think I've discussed it here before, but it's probably what I discussed most there. I would absolutely love to be the guy Microsoft asks to fix this. Love. It started with so much promise but is a completely dropped ball at this point. I think Shadow Complex was the last game I bought, and I've downloaded maybe 3 games in the past year. I've looked at the list of games maybe double that. It's become too clunky, and the time spent looking for games hasn't been worth the reward the games offer.
At this point it seems they've given up, as consumers have.

I have a few ideas about how to fix this that I'd love to introduce to them. And by "a few" I mean dozens.
