Steam to receive new billing methods?

December 8th, 2005 :: General :: No Responses has posted an interview with Mike Dunkle, Valve’s Cybercafé administrator, covering a wide range of topics including Steam. He reveals that Valve are ‘working on new billing systems, like PayPal or debit cards’ (there are large barriers to their use), and does not dismiss the idea of Steam making an appearance on the Xbox 360.

Unfortunately, a man in Dunkle’s position is not the ideal candidate for an interview like’s: he has to turn down many of the questions, and gives vague answers to others. While the new billing systems seem realistic, don’t expect to see Microsoft give a competitor to Xbox Live! Arcade access to their console any time soon…
