This absolutely.

If the article isn't clear about it, the reason why this is a big deal for developers is because developers would look at what games and what features were selling well in order to plot how best to make their next game.

I personally used SteamSpy in order to tell how much King's Quest was selling. It was an amazing game and I wanted to see it succeed. But the idea that games are being made based on sales speculation is gross.
