Valve's Steam platform will get the option to record video of gameplay "very soon," according to a report from a recent visit to the developer, which cites studio founder Gabe Newell as the source of that information.
The Half-Life, Team Fortress and Portal developer just recently added universal screen shot support in Steam, letting users capture and upload screens to the company's cloud-based service, Steam Cloud. Recording video and sharing it through Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and the Steam Community seems like the next logical step.
Other news bits reportedly dropped by Mr. Newell include a possible expansion of the Steam platform to iOS and Android platforms and that "the Source film maker is in the pipeline for a public release." Factoring in the effects Valve Time, we shan't hold our breath that "very soon" and "in the pipeline" is just around the corner.
We're double checking with Valve to see if they'll officially confirm it.
