Epic's Sweeney Calls Exclusives "PROCOMPETITIVE"

DSOGaming notes a series of posts on Reddit from Tim Sweeney have more from the Epic Games CEO on what's going on in the Epic Games Store, where Epic's discounted take is adding a little disruption to the online games market. One post on Reddit Sweeney defends the practice of signing games to exclusive distribution deals, saying that this is a "PROCOMPETITIVE issue and the PC remains an open platform." Here's a bit:

Yes, and the PC remains open, and there is more robust competition among PC stores than ever before. There's Steam offering Valve games, Origin offering EA games, Battle.net offering Activision and Bungie games, Epic Games offering games from many publishers.

I get that you guys don't like store-exclusive games, but that's a completely separate, and PROCOMPETITIVE issue, compared to closing down platforms like Windows to monopolize distribution, as iOS does, and as Microsoft was trying to do with UWP and locked-down versions of Windows -- which failed, and whose proponents are now gone and replaced with great leaders like Satya Nadella and Phil Spencer who are driving Windows forward as an open platform!
