Valve cuts its games in episodes

Valve, the famous producer of the Half Life video game, decided to try transforming distribution of video game software. As they announced, the next launches will see short episodes (shorter than the original successful game) aimed at a public ready for paying less but more often. It seems to be a way to avoid the major financial bumps of launching a new game only after severla years of development.

We’ll see if success will be there to meet this tactics. If the game synopsis are ok, it could well change the scene of FPS (First Person Shooters) and the way most people play.
