Today’s industry insight looks back at Steam Greenlight and all the good and bad that went with it. Will Steam Direct have similar problems? Only time will tell.
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.
