The recent announcement regarding the Steam Direct Fee has been met by mixed opinions of the negative variety. Steam Direct’s purpose was to be a barrier to prevent scammers and low quality games from being on there. However, the $100 fee doesn’t even feel like a slap on the wrist, and leads me to thinking about other solutions.
The Steam Direct Fee Announcement happened today, and I wanted to talk about it in today’s industry insight. While I support the plan, I don’t think what Valve proposed is going to work in terms of the fee.
