Steam to begin selling non-games software

Valve has confirmed that its Steam service will begin making non-games software available on September 5.

Information is still vague at the moment, as Valve only refers to the new software titles as, well, “Software titles.” The company says this software will “range from creativity to productivity,” and will mostly incorporate pre-existing Steam features like “easy installation, automatic updating, and the ability to save your work to your personal Steam Cloud space so your files may travel with you.”

Additional Software titles will be added beyond the September 5 launch, and Valve is encouraging developers submit their own versions of the software through its crowd-sourced Steam Greenlight system.
