Steam Greenlight Ending

GamesBeat collects some developer tweets from Valve's just-launched developer days, since the press is not in attendance. One tweet mentions third-party Steam controllers are in the cards, and another says that the Steam Greenlight program is going away. This meshes with a video interview recently mentioned on PC Gamer where Vlambeerís Rami Ismail speculated that the recent rash of greenlights was to clear the queue before ending the system. "I'm thinking that because they've been clearing the queue at such a rapid rate. They've been clearing 100 games every month. . .You donít do that because there are 100 good games on Greenlight every month," he suggests. "You do that because you want to get rid of everything that isn't greenlit before you kill it, so you donít upset developers." His theory is that any developer will eventually be able to put their games on Steam.
