Steam to Sell Mad Max Films Alongside Tie-In Game

By James O Malley on at

PC gaming platform Steam has announced that alongside the forthcoming Mad Max game it will also be selling the films from the series too.

According to UberGizmo you'll also be able to pick up Mad Max, The Road Warrior, Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome, as well as this year's Mad Max: Fury Road.

They will all be available on the Steam store but you might not want to bother with the game, as our pals at Kotaku reckon that it is a bit of a stinker.

What's particularly interesting though is that this is Steam, previously a platform devoted entirely to games, selling movies. Could this signal Valve testing the waters in other forms of media?

The platform has previously sold a handful of films in the past. A few years it sold Indie Game: The Movie, so perhaps we shouldn't read too much into it. But since then Valve has been hard at work on Steam OS and the company's Business Development director has said that she would like to sell movies and TV shows in the future.

So could the company be considering taking on the likes of iTunes and Google Play at selling other digital content? Or is this simply a promotional one off? [UberGizmo]
