this isn't a new idea.. steam has been doing this for years, I even have all of my blizzard games added to steam so I can still talk to alot of my friends while playing.

Who said it was a new idea?

Also, Steam doesn't add their chat interface into the WoW interface, like how Battle.net proposes. No alt-tabbing to another app, no more signing in to several different servers to check who is on. Plus inviting a WoW friend that doesn't run any external chat clients to run through Diablo 3 for an hour before a raid night? Sounds pretty Win-ish to me.

you don't need to alt-tab to use steam in wow, steams overlay works just like it would with a regular steam game to chat with people

The difference is, that you can't specify what name is on your battlenet chat.. It uses your name off your credit card.In steam, I can talk multi-game without giving out my real first and last name.
