Steam Remote Game Downloads and Installs Now Live

Steam remote DownloadsSteam’s power to tempt me in to spending money on games that I rarely have time to play has just increased thanks to its new remote download feature.

PC and Mac gamers have long enjoyed the community and the huge discounts available on Valve’s game downloading site – and now you don’t even have to be near a computer.

I can’t remember the last time I bought a game on the high street and now I wont even need to purchase one using a computer!

Steam has officially enabled its remote download feature which lets you download and even install games away from your PC, so that you’ll have titles installed and ready to rock before you even get home.

All you have to do is access your Games list on Steam’s community site via any web browser or by using  the iOS or Android apps on your mobile and you can install previously purchased games. When buying a new title just choose the remote install option. Bosh!

I am a tad nervous about this – I can see me making purchases when heading home on the night bus after a few shandies…
