    This summer Valve will ship a major update to its online gaming platform Steam, introducing an advanced set of community features to more than 13 million gamers around the world. Beginning in July, Steam users can set up their own personal Steam pages and profiles, create and join groups, schedule games with friends, review who they've played with, see how well everyone played, chat with groups, chat via voice, and more. These new community services and features can be used with all Steam games, which include new releases and classic titles from leading publishers and independent developers. Free of charge, the new community features will be accessible via the Steam desktop client and via the web. For more information, please visit www.steampowered.com.

    Nice update, but adding this makes me think they're trying to take out X-Fire, with the friends lists and in-game IM that's already available, and also the new Steam page, which X-Fire already has.
    Although I do hope the major update is more than just socialising crap, it's about time they added this me thinks.
