    That is awesome! It only seems like a couple of years ago that people were hugely sceptical of Steam but it's really coming out with some incredibly good features now. I just wish it would replace that ill thought-out 'Games for Windows' rubbish!

    It basically has, but like with so many things MS is late to find out.

    There is one upside to GFW badging, in order to obtain the license to market your game as a GFW title you need to support widescreen gaming out of the box and support an xbox 360 controller via USB among other things. Those two things though are quite important to a number of people. I personally don't care about the controller part, but having mandatory widescreen support is a big plus.

    I hear what you're saying Aprox, but in all honesty I've not come across a non-widescreen game for years. Have you come across many?

    Standardisation of PC games is a good thing though, I agree with you there.

    Don't always have to support both of these....Bioshock 2 is a GFWL title and does not support 360 controller.
