How about getting the client up to date first? Remove the bloat, streamline it, make it faster, an offline mode that works, etc.

Yup, let's take the hardware guys and get them working on software. That'll do it!

WTF would I ask for hardware guys to work on software? We have bloatware that's basically been unchanged since it's inception. It's still a buggy, broken mess and they have over 65 million accounts. Tell me what other company could rest on their laurels with something like that. This is one major problem with Valve's style of management. The essential things that should have been nailed down long ago never get done because no one thinks it's "interesting" enough.

If they don't want to do it, farm it out. It's not like they can't throw money at it. Even Origin is a better client. If it wasn't for the fact it was EA I'd prefer to use it. Unfortunately there are no real challengers to Steam so they don't feel they have to do sweet FA.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.
