    I found this but I don't know if its true or anything. I didnt get a chance to read it so might as well just post it here. :D


    "As of November 2009 Steam will shut done after enduring several lawsuits from multiple game companies. Ubisoft and Activison have sued Steam of illegally distributing games through the steam application. Members are able to illegally add games using serial numbers given to steam users. The Lawsuit ended with Ubisoft and Activision winning the case and Steam has until November 2009 to shut down."

    Couldn't find any other sources as to where that info had came from... I'd say it's false. Plus it's Wikipedia anyway :p

    Everything i read on wikipedia i tend to go to the citation link to see if its true. Then, find some more sources before i even start to believe what i hear :)

    But yeah, since steam is big and there are alot of gullable article writers, its bound to be on alot of sites.
