Tim Sweeney on Digital Ownership

In discussing the news of the "official" integration of GOG GALAXY 2.0 with the Epic Games Store, Epic CEO Tim Sweeney tweets: "Connect ALL the stores" (thanks Tessier). This is interesting in light of all the Epic Games Store exclusivity deals and came right before the announcement that Rocket League will no longer be offered to new players through Steam when the game makes its free-to-play debut on the Epic Games Store. But he further discusses how such cross-store integration could work in light of concerns about what would happen to players' game libraries should one of these stores close. He offers this tweet on ownership of digital games:
Ultimately, ownership of digital items should be a universal notion, independent of stores and platforms. So much of the digital world today is frustrated by powerful intermediaries whose toll booths obstruct open commerce to keep customers and their purchases locked in.
