Can't tell if you're trolling and just here to argue, or actually believe that nonsense. Do you not understand what opportunity cost is? https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opportunity_cost Margin is irrelevant without factoring volume. Deep SIlver isn't "making more money" when they're limiting themselves to a store with a tiny fraction of the buying customer base. Not selling on Steam means leaving hundreds of thousands of additional sales on the table, and for those they'll keep 0% instead of 70% -- conservatively millions of dollars on a high profile AAA like Exodus. If they wanted to make it $50 on Epic, and leave it $60 on Steam, cool. That's benefitting consumers and increasing competition. But taking a bribe check to keep it off Steam for a year = not increasing competition.
