So because they have an inferior product they have to resort to collusion to force consumers to use their platform? Because they sure as hell could've just passed their Fortnite truckloads of cash to the consumer by subsidising the games on their storefront, giving them a lower price, and competing with Steam fairly. Consumers win. I'd just buy their timed-exclusive games at a later date, when they're on Steam and on sale. And that's not even because I'm angry about their practices. I'm just past that point where I give a fuck about playing games on release day. Oh and guess what? Even without sales, Steam will always be cheaper, due to their ability to cater regionally. I don't have to spend $60, I get to save around $5-30. And that's with day 1 AAA games. With regular sales on top of that, I save a significant amount. Enough to buy a RTX 2060 every 2 years, compared to buying from Epic Store. And I don't give a fuck if devs get more money. Prior to Epic Store there were still quality, AAA games being released on Steam just fine. In fact, I have to thank Epic Store, because now it's easier to see which devs/publishers are just greedy cunts who don't give a fuck about the consumers. Their games won't be bought at full price, for sure. Maybe bargain-bin prices. They deserve it.
