Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) partners with Valve's Steam digital delivery service.

Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) is to partner with Valve's Steam digital delivery service. SOE games including
"the complete EverQuest and EverQuest II (EQII) collections, as well as Vanguard: Saga of Heroes and Pirates of the Burning Sea will be available".

According to Steam, "To kick off this monumental event"... we don't know what it's a monument to, "...Pirates of the Burning Sea, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, EQ Secrets of Faydwer and EQII Rise of Kunark are being offered by Valve at a special introductory price for the first 10 days the games are available for purchase on Steam. New SOE game accounts for the game purchased will also receive 30 days of gameplay included with purchase (this offer excludes existing game and Station Access accounts)."

Let's hope that SOE executives agree with the line taken by Steam's director of business development and legal affairs, Jason Holtman, who told GameDaily recently that, "Pirates are under-served customers. When you think about it that way, you think, 'Oh my gosh, I can do some interesting things and make some interesting money off of it". via spong
