    IRC Chat Valve Takes on Piracy With Free, Pre-Packaged Game Publishing Tools

    Valve is rocking the boat in a big way, especially for PC gaming piracy. They have just announced the release of a complete collection of publisher tools, called Steamworks. They're making it available to developers and publishers completely free. Valve notes that beyond simply making the product available to consumers some of the tools can integrate copy protection, social networking services, or even server browsing features into a developing game.

    Hmph. What they really mean is that they can make it impossible to resell the item, basically just screwing with the end consumer.

    Oh, and making it standard to not update game engines for 5 years or more.
