any other industry the competitors are brutal and cuthroat. Steam has been assraping developers for years. I mean it is great that it has given them access to makets, but that access originally came at a price of 40%, now down to 30%. I love games and shit but I'd rather have the money I spend on them go to developers. Making gaben richer does nothing for me, since with their monopoly they abandoned less profitable stuff like HL3.It's not what they are doing. It is the context. People don't like epic for good reason. They didn't arbitrarily decide they are not going to like them. Epic well earned their hatred.
Epic comes along, and shit, getting 12% commission, that is a pretty sweet deal. If I was them I would try to buy up every single title possible. Steam could easily end this in a moment by reducing their take to say 15%. Nobody is going to use epic for a 3% savings. But steam has doing nothing. They would rather continue collecting 30% on the stuff they have then go to a more reasonable number.
