They can't even manage to display anything outside of US currency! Exclusives are bullshit - always have been, always will be. Good prices? A couple dollars less than on Steam isn't a good price. Besides all that they have zero security and zero customer support. If they think this is all it takes to beat Steam they'll be out of business in a year or two.

From the full interview:

“We believe the ultimate vector for players to discover new games will not be our storefront but creators, which is why Epic’s ‘Support a Creator’ program is integrated into store operations,” says Sweeney, adding: “Viewership of creator channels has greatly outgrown any storefront. In Korea and China, the primary game distribution vectors are social: WeChat, KakaoTalk and QQ, rather than storefronts. As with the twists in Fortnite’s evolution, one shouldn’t necessarily project the Steam or App Store paradigm onto its final form,” he cautions.

What is he even saying here? That in the future, in order to buy a game you have to watch a creator channel and wait for a link in that channel to pop up so you can buy it? I think I just saw my own version of Dante's fucking Inferno...

Not features. Not support. Not customer service. Nope. Exclusives.

I hope that Fortnite gravy train shits the bed soon so this can just go away again. Are you going to spend ANY of your fucking money on SUPPORTING your customers, Sweeney??

Epic is content to cry that Steam is near perfect already so they can't compete on features.

So they won't do that...because who cares about them anyway and compete via paid exclusivity deals.

I'm just thinking if you truly believe that you can't offer a better model...why try?

Better pricing and better features is what draws me to platforms.

Trust me, most of the names I have been called you can't translate in any language...they're not even real words as much as a succession of violent images.
