Steam Beta Ends, Full Version Ships Next Week

The Steam Beta has delivered several Valve games and popular Half-Life MODs to over 300,000 gamers, and will come to a close Tuesday evening (Pacific Daylight Time). The first full version of Steam, Valve's broadband platform for the delivery and management of digital content, will launch at 11 am PDT on Wednesday. Set up installers for the full version, which will be free of charge to existing Half-Life and Counter-Strike players, will be available from www.steampowered.com and leading game sites.

i really don't think steam can handle what will happen. Everytime a CS patch has come out it crashes.

We all know there are a shitload of CS players, but lets add in all the people that hate CS and are just waiting for a new game. I think there are 10-15x the amount of gamers in the second catagory. If the CS players alone can crash steam I think their servers will melt upon the HL2 release.
