Gabe Newell, the leader of Steam creator Valve, believes that one of the main changes that could be implemented in the coming months is an expansion of the user-generated elements of the digital distribution service.
Speaking to The Verge
, he says, “We think that the store should actually be more like user generated content. So, anybody should be able to create a store, and it should be about extra entertainment value. Our view has always been that we should build tools for customers and tools for partners.”
Valve has already given Steam users a voice via the Mod Workshop and the Greenlight service and user-generated stores would be a good way of showing how varied the service and the games available on it are.
Steam is the biggest digital distribution service on the PC.
