When it comes to video game networks Steam really took the cake last year. They remain one of only two networks left that do not charge a penny to use the service, have grown much faster than Microsoft’s Xbox Live, and took the lid off their new SteamOS as well as Steam Machines, which we fully expect to hear more about next week at CES. One of the few things we really have not heard a peep about though are major developer players jumping on the Steam train. Valve has a ton of developers on board, from small indie firms to the big shots such as Activision, but there has been little from another large dev know as Epic Games. Recently in a Q and A forum the big shots at Epic talked with the press and they made mention about how impressed they are with where Valve is going with Steam. Could this mean that Epic Games is on board to go all in on Steam finally? Will we possibly see the Gears franchise get ported or even continue here? Time will tell, but it’s all good news so far for Valve, a little more can’t hurt.
