Steam, which is already the best store in the industry as far as promoting and highlighting content goes (seriously, Xbox Live, PSN, eShop, and App Store could all stand to learn from Steam) will be expanding its discoverability options even further with a newly launched ‘Recently Updated’ section on the store, that will highlight games and apps that have been updated with interesting features recently.
“The more options developers have for communicating about their products the better it is for everyone,” says Tom Bui of Valve. “With this new product section and corresponding developer tools, customers can more easily discover products that provide ongoing value and involvement from the developers.”
In addition, Steam will now let players browse updates for any titles that they have purchased, activated, or have attached to their accounts, on Steam.
Once again, Valve shows why Steam is far and away the standard of digital distribution in the industry.
