I don't have any loyalty towards Steam, in fact I think a Steam monopoly would hurt PC gaming in the long-run. Having said that, my opinion mirrors Creston's perfectly.
The B&M stores have been treating PC gamers like shit for a lot of years, hence the reason why digital distribution became big on the PC in the first place, and now they're QQing as they see the PC market starting to grow again and them not having a share? Tough shit, B&M assholes, you had your chance and you treated us like shit, allow us to return the favor.
Go QQ somewhere else that cares, B&M retail. You had your chance and because you didn't take it, you've become obsolete on the PC market.
Oh and Beamer, PC was the 2nd platform earning the most revenue this 2Q for EA, almost as much as the first, the xbox.
