Another competitive store? Yeah that's a good thing for consumers for sure.
A store that pays to remove choices from the consumers? Nah.
Doesn't seem complicated to me.
You mean a store that makes publishers an exclusivity OFFER, of course.
What is removing the choice from consumers is NOT the offer or the payment per se but the greedy as fuck publishers who ACCEPT the offer, fully well knowing that consumer choice will be (time) limited.
It is 100% the publisher's fault. THEY are the only ones who determine when, where, how, why a product of theirs gets published. If THEY take money from anyone for limited
exclusivity then that's on them and their fucking unlimited
greed. THEY are making the final anti-consumer decision, not EGS. THEY could say 'no' but they don't.
