Just one question up:

The Article wrote:F13: And, believe me, we in the press love promptness.

TA: Distribution - electronic downloads are good, and to that extent we've shifted our focus from retail to online distribution for DEFCON - it's a predominately a multiplayer game anyway, so it makes sense...

Yeah, but that could mean Steam, XBox Live Arcade, some in house distribution method, or something else entirely. Or all three. There is no comment on the actual issue of Steam.

Granted, but you don't fly over to Valve HQ to just have tea and crumpets...
