Activision on Steam

Ever since Valve opened Steam to third-party developers, companies have been in a rush to sign their games to the network, which is a relatively simple way for back catalog and indie titles to get distribution that would otherwise be impossible. One of the biggest leaps, however, was today's news that Activision would deliver an initial batch of its own games to Valve's network. The first games to arrive on Steam will be the three current games from Infinity Ward's Call of Duty series as well as Neversoft's cowboy action title GUN. Call of Duty, its expansion pack, and GUN will all be available for $20 when they become available later this month; as a newer game, Call of Duty 2 will sell for $40. Other games weren't mentioned as part of Activision's announcement, though they will likely follow if the early launch proves a success.
