Steam Greenlight to Crowdsource Steam Game Choices

Posted by | July 10, 2012

Steam is a powerful tool for putting new and interesting games in front of gamers. Almost anyone with a game to sell wants to see it on Steam. However, that leads to a problem, namely, not every game is good. Oh, and there’s limited space to show off games in any practical way. So how does Valve decide who gets the nod to be on Steam? It’s tricky. Soon, though, the process will be a lot more obvious, because Valve is offloading the responsibility to their customers through a program called Steam Greenlight. Ars Technica has the story.
