Submission + - Steam Offering Free-to-Play Games (industrygamers.com) 1

donniebaseball23 writes: Valve's digital Steam service is going strong with 30 million active accounts and now the developer has further boosted its offerings by adding free-to-play titles, reports IndustryGamers.

Valve's support of free-to-play shows just how widely accepted it's become.
