It has been said that lightwave 8 will have better game support. My guess is that GamesTek (or something similar, announced a year or so ago) will just be part of lightwave 8 and not a seperate thing.

From http://www.3dgate.com/techniques/2001/010409/0409gdc.html
"One new thing though, was GameTek, NewTek's new gaming initiative. The new offerings for game developers include a special area at the NewTek site where game developer tools can be downloaded and discussions can be started. Also, for every ten copies of LightWave a company purchases for its artists, they get a free copy for one of their programmers."
