Jason Holtman, who was Valve's former head of Steam, has been hired by Microsoft, according to GamesIndustry International. He ran Steam for eight before leaving in February of this year. At Microsoft he will focus on the PC gaming and entertainment strategy.

"Yes, I have joined Microsoft where I will be focusing on making Windows a great platform for gaming and interactive entertainment," said Holtman. "I think there is a lot of opportunity for Microsoft to deliver the games and entertainment customers want and to work with developers to make that happen, so I'm excited to be here."

Microsoft has shifted away from gaming on the PC and has been focusing on the console market. However, with the hiring of Holtman it could be a sign that Microsoft will invest more in the PC market.
