Newell on Self-Publishing on Steam

Rock, Paper, Shotgun notes an interesting segment in the Gabe Newell video interview mentioned earlier today. About 44 minutes in Gabe discusses the way Valve acts as a bottleneck in the process of getting games published on the service, and he envisions a future where anyone can self publish on Steam: "OK if we are thinking about this correctly, it really should be sort of a network API.," he explains. "There should be this publishing model and yes you have to worry about viruses and malware and stuff like that but essentially anybody should be able to publish anything through Steam."
