With all due respect, Mr. Sweeney. You're the last person to talk about "universal ownership." If you genuinely believe in it, you can put your words into action by making all your store exclusives no longer exclusive. All this lip service is nothing more than PR. Anyone interested in using your store would've signed up by now. Continuing to hold third-party games hostage on your platform isn't going to change people's minds now. Please do the right thing by releasing publishers from their exclusivity contracts. Then focus on making your store as good or better than Steam. Only then will your platform succeed.
It's not up to Sweeney to make games exclusive or not. That's the publishers. If they don't want to sell exclusively on Epic, they'll reject Sweeney's offers. Publishers are the people you really should be complaining about.
Yes, but he's engaging in and promoting anti-consumerist behavior. That's like letting Hitler skate by saying, 'Well, people didn't have to join the Nazis.' You don't need running shoes to run but they sure fucking help.
Neither of your analogies really describes the situation.

Nope. Epic is no better than EA.
This is some fxxk up logic here. Steam is worse because Valve doesn't make game anymore? Is Apple App Store or Ebay suck because they don't sell any stuff they made??
Steam is a much better online game store than EA because it has lots of feature. Take away all EA games (most EA games not interest me), it has nothing.

The slippery slope of this sort of mob justice will very quickly lead to "re-education" camps and firing squads
