That one made my day guys ...
I read that at the community forums. I thought that Steams digital distribution did not have DRM's and the Update function on steams digital downloads is the ability to do away with DRM's.

Kinda like double speak. It sounds a little better though. Now the other question. Are the digital downloads region specific? Meaning can I buy a digital download from the UK and have it unlocked in the US on its Steam activation day in the UK?
