Pinball FX2 on Steam Next Week

The Pinball FX2 Website announces a Windows PC edition of this pinball game is coming to Steam on May 10th as a free download (thanks nin via Kotaku). Never fear, there will still be the chance to spend money on this, even if your PC doesn't have a slot for quarters, as the release will be supported by the release of the following six table packs, which will be $9.99 each:

  • Star Wars™ Pinball
  • Marvel Pinball
  • Marvel Pinball: Vengeance and Virtue
  • Marvel Pinball: Avengers Chronicles
  • Pinball FX2 Core Collection
  • Zen Classics

Or Greenlight has done its job, and not waved through a random indie title that next to nobody would buy (based on the data Valve is seeing from that system).
That's not the job of greenlight. That's a side bonus that ends up being good for customers.

The job of greenlight is to reduce valve's uninteresting and unfun work of dealing with a million mostly crappy game submissions.

Valve even says as much in the press release announcing it.

“Making the call to publish or not publish a title isn’t fun,” said Anna Sweet, at Valve. “Many times opinions vary and our internal jury is hung on a decision. But with the introduction of the Steam Workshop we realized an opportunity to enlist the community's help

With a flat management structure, no stockholders to be beholden to, a growing source of steady income, wheels on desk, and gabe's "obsession" with employee health, valve has different priorities than almost any other company. Probably one of the best places anywhere to work.
