Activision has become the latest high profile game company to dip its toes into Steam (that hissing noise is the sound of the English language having a fit).

The publisher has agreed to offer Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 2 (US$ 39.95) and Call of Duty 1, and Gray Matter's Call of Duty: United Offensive (both US$ 19.95) along with Neversoft's Wild West shooter GUN (US$ 19.95) through Valve's digital distribution service, although there's no word on precisely when it'll do this.

Steam, which originally began as a way for Valve to distribute Half-Life and its other software directly to its fans, has grown considerably in recent months, with the makers of significant titles like Dark Messiah of Might & Magic and those of just plain awesome games like DEFCON choosing to launch there.

This week also saw Majesco continue to take advantage of the service's benefits; having put BloodRayne 1 and 2 and Advent Rising on sale through the service recently, the US publisher has added excellent platform game Psychonauts to the ranks for US$19.95.

Meanwhile, Monte Cristo Games has started selling surprisingly good city-building title City Life through the service for US$ 39.95.
