I don't think this is a legitimate complaint anymore, it's just kinda nitpicky, but a cart would certainly help! I'd prefer they put money into providing all the features Steam provides: remote play, Steam Input, user profiles, game communities, freaking reviews.chickenboo wrote on May 20, 2021, 13:33:Kxmode wrote on May 20, 2021, 13:03:Agreed, but it's also pretty damn generous. $10 coupon for every purchase over $15. I have nothing against players taking advantage of that offer to scoop up a ton of titles on EGS vs the competition. That's exactly what Epic wants here: if you're buying the game on EGS, you're not buying it again elsewhere, so your library is expanding and you will buy more games from EGS in the future. It's a good tactic.

Not many will "scoop up a ton of titles" as long as the store lacks a basic shopping cart and people remain impatient. Instead of blowing money on legal battles, freebies, and anti-consumer exclusivity deals, perhaps Epic could put that money towards creating a fantastic shopping cart that rival Steam's.
But in the mean time if you didn't have a large library of PC games, this is a good cheap way to acquire them. I personally would prefer to have Steam keys so I won't be buying anything from EGS but I'm beginning to wonder if I'll care as much in a couple of years.
Because Google Play was designed for mobile devices the same as Apple's App store. On both devices, that how those stores operate. But EGS is a PC gaming store. Every eCommerce site including Steam, GOG, Origin, U-Play, Battle.net, and so forth ALL have shopping carts.

What, can't recall another case of so much effort to turn around a bad initial consensus.
Really, they keep on going, it's kind of phenomenal.
Add quests and I'll buy it in a second !

It was already profitable before the game launched. But now they’ve lost $1 billion. Let’s back up a moment and maybe wait until the goty comes out.
With reporting like that you’d think bloomberg was owned by Rupert Murdoch.
