I personally don't buy much from steam for various reasons, but for a lot of people it's a pretty good service, I quite like it. Only company I avoid is gamestop, they really lowball people on the trade ins then gouge people who buy the used ones, that and the whole special stuff only from pre-orders through them.
This sort of decision is up to publishers though, I'm pretty confident it's not going to be just steam if on steam at all lol.
