Steam Greenlight Fee

In a much needed move, Steam has decided to add a $100 listing fee to all Greenlight submissions. The issue with Greenlight up to this point has been the myriad of fake games, games people would like to see on Steam, and jokes submitted. The whole platform itself is supposed to be a tool that developers can use to have their game added to Steam – not a running wishlist for people who want Minecraft or Mass Effect 3 on Steam. If you’re a game developer and are serious about getting your game released on Steam, a $100 fee isn’t going to stand in your way, and the new requirement will cut down on all the clutter and noise.
