Steam Direct Fee is $100

A post on the Steam Blog has details on the fees for Steam Direct, the recently revealed Steam Greenlight replacement. They say listing this way will cost a recoupable $100: "So in the end, we've decided we're going to aim for the lowest barrier to developers as possible, with a $100 recoupable publishing fee per game, while at the same time work on features designed to help the Store algorithm become better at helping you sift through games." Here's what they say about the future:
Next Steps For Steam Direct
Like all the work in the Steam Store, Steam Direct will take some iteration to get the kinks out. We're optimistic. Aiming for the low publishing fee gives every game developer a chance to get their game in front of players. The Store algorithm will do its best to make sure you see games that are worth your time to look at. Combining everyone's increased visibility into the algorithm's thinking with the human eyes of Curators will hopefully ensure that whenever that algorithm isn't working properly, we'll know about it, and have the chance to fix it.

Our next post will wrap up this series of posts, where we'll cover the sunsetting of Greenlight, and the timing for the release of Steam Direct.

$100 is entirely too much. It should be ten because that would ensure more great games get made and released.

But seriously, who shops steam looking for games.
I don't go to Amazon looking for random stuff to purchase.
