You do realise it costs money for these businesses to store and sell digital products?

That is not a valid excuse, most digital stores don't charge storage fees like retailers did with shelf space. They charge a rate based on sales. A single steam sale probably likely pays for years of distribution percentage fees even if they did start charging it.

No one is saying this is the end of the universe, just that its a shitty practice and pretty much indefensible. Normally when a company sunsets a product and wants me to buy a new one then I expect the same or more functionality, not less.

Anways, I totally get why this would upset fans, I just hope they remember it the next time they open their wallets for id stuff.
