Why The Skyrim Mod Charges Are A Terrible Idea In Steam

skyrim-creationkit-steamworkshop-forblog_v2

Earlier today, Bethesda and Valve made a move to alter the current community modding mechanism in Valves Steam distribution platform.

Interestingly, Eurogamer claim to have spoken to Valve about the issue and the statement that they claim was issued by a Valve representative is: “Based on what we’ve see on Greenlight we would not publish Hatred on Steam.
