This awesome reply should not be drowned out by garage suffocation nonsense.
Yes, it should be drowned out because it's a combination of hypocrisy and fear-mongering bullshit based upon what Microsoft could possibly try to do instead of what Microsoft has actually stated. If you accept Steam's restrictions as Prez has, you can't legitimately bitch about Microsoft's same restrictions for its own storefront.

I don't see any hypocrisy here and Steams restrictions are different from the Windows 8 stores. Xbox Live to Steam would be a more valid comparison. Steam also recently opened up part of its approval process. Microsoft also hasn't said much about their platform intentions which is part of why people tend to be leery. We have existing examples of closed platform distribution from several vendors to compare, Microsoft included thanks to Xbox Live.
