Valve bans 10,000 Steam accounts, plus other updates

Steam burns!People who use the Steam service can have multiplayer gunfights and download oodles of content through it. In fact, games such as RoboBlitz, Heroes of Annihilated Empires, and Medieval II are seeing releases through it. Of course, there’s always good to go with the bad, which is why their latest Steam update is especially poignant today.

Valve Corporation, makers of the digital distribution and game management software known as Steam, recently banned 10,000 Steam accounts. According to the company, the accounts were banned as a result of cheating and were found through new anti-cheating tech they’ve implemented to stop Steam cheaters.

On another note, Valve has completed the Steam Hardware Survey. For those who haven’t heard, the Steam Hardware Survey grabs information on the hardware specs of the computers using Steam for comparison purposes. In other words, if you wanted to know how good your gaming set-up was against the other Steam users, you’ve now got a pretty good reference on what other people use in relation to your own rig.

Lastly, Race: The Official WTCC Game will be out next week for racing fans, and you’ll also be able to grab it through Valve’s service. All in all, it sounds like a good week for Valve, though cheaters will probably be annoyed at the banning they’ve received. Oh well, that’s to be expected when you mess with the big boss.
