Steam Rises

There are articles on both GameSpy.com and Shacknews about Steam, an upcoming broadband delivery system from Valve Software that hasn't really been formally discussed, although it was recently rolled out in a semi-public beta test (story). Each article elaborates on the Steam broadband content delivery system, describing a tool that purchasers of Valve's games will make transparent use of to get game patches and the like that may also be licensed by outside companies for other forms of content delivery. Each article also offers quotes from Valve's Gabe Newell, while GameSpy's piece also features quotes from Doug Lombardi with the Shack's offering screenshots of the Steam interface along with a mention of plans for an accompanying instant-messaging client called "Tracker."

I honestly hope that it puts a big kink in cheating n00bs and since the bulk of it sounds server side it could in theory be pretty effective. cheats arent created very quickly and if the files that need to be hacked change daily it "sounds" like it could work well. Lets all hope for our sake that it does work. I would like to see gaming get back to how it used to be, and all the cheating faggots can move on. If this technology works well, you can bet that more developers will probably start doing the same.
