CAN WE ALL PLEASE STOP MISPLACING BLAME? You wanna blame someone for the fact you can't buy your games on Steam, don't blame the game companies or Epic, BLAME VALVE. Valve are REFUSING to drop their revenue split to 12%. They can afford to, but that would cut their massive profit margin to less than half and they don't want to. Valve want you to stay loyal to Steam and keep making (probably) billions, but they still refuse to make Portal 3, Half-Life 3 or anything new and awesome. Imagine you own a game that'll sell several million copies. You wanna sell the game in the store that carves 30% of your earnings or do you wanna sell it in the store that only takes 12%? It's pretty simple maths: Sell 1,000,000 copies at £40 each (I'm a Brit, I work in £) so that's £40M. Sell with Steam: you keep £28M Sell with Steam and use Unreal Engine: you keep £26M Sell with Epic: you keep £35.2M That's before tax ofc. Quit blaming Epic and the game companies when the only thing keeping these games off Steam is Valve's greed.

Epic's launcher platform is garbage. They do not give you full speed downloads. Takes me 40+minutes to download 1-2gb update for fortnite. Took me 20minutes to download entire Apex game on Origin, like 13gb. Steam also gives me full speed. On that note... Epic can kiss my hairy bum.

hakker2002 (3 months ago)
I think Steam has actually lost it's plot a while ago they have abused their power, players and developers at the same time. They have thought they are above everything and everyone. So I am all for leaving steam and using developer's platforms to play the games...

Wtf ok you never published a game but.. It's not the store's decision at all. It's all on the dev. Epic games just had the better deal of not taking 30% of the revenue and the dev decided to publish it there instead. There was no input from Epic games at all. I dont understand why people are now mad at epic games. Makes no sense.
ForOne814 (2 months ago)
​+ProTurials first: steam doesn't restrict developers from publishing in other stores. Ubisoft requires you to use 2 launchers at a time because of that. Second: no, they literally payed for the exclusivity. Either way, as a consumer I will ignore every game that ends up "exclusive" in that store and will pirate it if I'm interested in it. I won't support people who force me to use their shitty launcher instead of steam.
ProTurials (2 months ago)
+ForOne814 no they don't. They just don't take that much money and thus offer the better deal. So yeah, compared to steam you could say they offer them money.. But they don't do it literally. Publishing a game costs money. Steam takes 30%, epic games takes 12%, steam takes 100$ initially, Google play takes 25$. they will never pay you to publish your game on their platform. you pay them so you have access to the massive audience the store can present your game to and manage sales for you. The ones that pay you for publishing your game exclusively are the console developers. Sony and Microsoft. Because their products are getting sold more if there are great titles that people want to play but it's only for Xbox or ps4. On PC stores, mosts stores don't allow publishing your game to another store so that's why they say "exclusively for epic games store" because every fucking game on steam is also exclusively on steam, an steam definitely didn't pay for that.
ForOne814 (3 months ago)
Yeah, except they literally pay devs to publish in their shitty store.

Who doesnt want a basic 28 core system? You just need a 3000 dollar CPU, a 1500 dollar motherboard, a 1000 dollar cooling solution, 1000 dollars of memory and 2 PSU's. I just dont see what all the complaining is about.... Sounds perfectly reasonable to go with my 2500 dollar graphics cards. What?!

GR0UNDC0MMAND3R _ (3 months ago)
Epic should have just offered the game at a discounted price on their store. Gamers who would have appreciated Epic Games Store's offering would have easily bought it there, if the product was any good. Making anything exclusive is *not* consumer friendly because it limits consumer choice. I would have paid $10 more for the game on Steam because I appreciate the features Steam has, for example, but many people I know who don't give a crap would have bought it on the Epic Games store to save $10. That's a free lunch for just buying the game somewhere else. Aggressive moves like that are bad because Epic is trying to knock out competition rather than actually compete.

Timed exclusives are anti-consumer. Sure, its better for companies to have to compete for consumers, since it ups the quality, and forces them to listen to the consumer.

For everyone defending Epic store: • ⁠They have terrible security. ( 80 MILLION ACCOUNTS were exposed last week!) • ⁠They have terrible customer service. (Just Google it) • ⁠Games are more expensive on Epic due to regional pricing . (Metro Exodus being an example since while is US price is lower, the EU price is still around the same as it was on Steam. Let that sink in. ) • You can't play games offline . • ⁠Limited social features . • ⁠No screenshots . • ⁠No controller support . • ⁠They broke EU laws! (And still do!) • ⁠Scummy tactics. (You had to tick a box to opt out of emails, etc.) • ⁠They are partially owned by Tencent. (A Chinese company that SELLS USER DATA TO THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT! Read that again. ) • ⁠No achievements . • ⁠No cloud saves . • ⁠No game forums. (Many people went to Steam for Subnautica support.) • ⁠Epic makes you pay the transaction fee when purchasing games (Like this.) • ⁠They are anti-consumer! (They pay for exclusive rights to games to try and force you to use their store.) • ⁠They can refuse refunds even if you meet the criteria . Read that again. • ⁠No reviews , so you can't tell if a game is bad or not unless you Google it. • ⁠No Linux support. *not mine* let your wallet speak guys don't buy from the shitty epic store , epic games are dicks right nwo

How is making a game exclusive to Epic Games, good for competition? Wouldn't letting everyone sell at their own price be more competitive? If Epic wants to be competitive they should sell for a lower price...like they did.

Now you can _pay_ a insanely large amount of money to be spied on by eero! Wtf guys this is a seriously disturbing sponsor. Also who the f would pay nearly $700 to only cover 3500 sq. ft. I have one centrally located Ubiquity-Pro AP that covers my 3 story (4 with basement) lath & plaster 4000+ sq. ft home that only cost $250. Hell I get a bar or two outside around my house too.. Normally I don't mind your choice of sponsors but this one rubs me the wrong way.. Might just be me thought, still love the content! _Edit: Thought was supposed to be though._
