In the current generation, gamers only stay limited to what they own in the form of consoles and social interaction is impossible between two different consoles or a PC. Microsoft has been looking to change this concept for quite some time now and they seem genuinely interested in working on providing a cross platform which will run between PC and Xbox One.
Valve has finally expanded beyond games on it’s extremely popular cloud gaming service Steam. Just launched is the new software section. To start there are only six titles: ArtRage Studio Pro, CameraBag 2, GameMaker: Studio, 3D-Coat, 3DMark Vantage and 3DMark 11. While only having six titles does not seem like a lot it is a step in the right direction. In a press release Valve stated, “Many of the launch titles will take advantage of popular Steamworks features, such as easy installation, automatic updating, and the ability to save your work to your personal Steam Cloud space so your files may travel with you.”
