Over on the Steam blog they are talking about some improvements they've made on the Upcoming tab that some may or may not like. According to the blog the old tab just listed everything in a somewhat chronological order of upcoming titles and they felt that wasn't doing its job. Now the Upcoming tab is going to have a more tailored listing called Popular Upcoming. It's going to take pre-release interest in the game by using wishlists, past titles from the publisher/developer and pre-purchase info. Sounds reasonable to me and it's available right now. Go check it out and let me know how you like the change. Thanks cageymaru.


n the past, the Steam homepage included an Upcoming tab that showed customers a complete list of everything that was coming to Steam. This was a pretty simple feature -- it was literally just a chronological list of upcoming titles. It didn't do anything to build a list of games suited to anyone's interests and just wasn't doing its job.
