Valve Adds Non-Gaming Titles to Steam #yam

Valve today officially expanded Steam beyond games, adding non-gaming software to the online marketplace.

Valve first unveiled plans for a non-gaming section of Steam back in August, saying at the time that the titles would be available starting Sept. 5.

"The 40 million gamers frequenting Steam are interested in more than playing games," Valve's Mark Richardson said in August. "They have told us they would like to have more of their software on Steam, so this expansion is in response to those customer requests."

Two months later, a slow rollout has started, with just seven apps currently available, including GameMaker: Studio, 3D-Coat, ArtRage Studio Pro, 3DMark Vantage, 3DMark 11, CameraBag 2, and Source Filmmaker.
