Microsoft hires former Valve developer liaison to bolster Windows gaming

The future of Microsoft's digital game distribution systems just got brighter. Jason Holtman, who was heavily involved with the growth of Valve's Steam platform, has been hired by Redmond. According to a statement he gave Gamesindustry International, he'll work to flesh out Windows' native gaming and entertainment efforts. That isn't plausible without developer support though, and given his history as a liaison between devs and Valve, he'll be putting those skills to work to "make that happen" at his new gig. However, seeing that Microsoft's other gaming platform is taking the majority of the company's focus right now, we don't expect many new details about Holtman's duties to surface that soon.
