Want to break the 30% standard?
Better start competing with Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo on their platforms too, because they all use that standard!
The moment games start selling for $45 on EGS, while they are $60 everywhere else - because EGS takes a smaller piece of the pie - is the moment I'll believe any of this bullshit and install the software.
But we all know that's never going to happen.
Thank you. Was just going to say the same thing myself. Oh so this is all for our benefit is it? Yeah. Sure.
Except that Steam won't let you sell for a different price on a different store. Exclusives are the only way that happens.
What do you mean? There are always sales on other storefronts - Fanatical, GMG, etc. - where games that activate on Steam are cheaper than they are on Steam. I don't know of any game that's exclusive to Steam alone, let alone can't set it's own price.
