Op Ed

  • GamesIndustry.biz - Tim Sweeney is right - Epic losses on its Game Store are a good investment - Opinion.
    "Losing hundreds of millions of dollars on launching a product or platform into a hugely saturated market dominated by a major player, or players, is exactly what you need to do up front if you have an ambition to compete in that market. There's no "plucky upstart" way of Minimum Viable Product-ing your way into competition with a platform like Steam; you could potentially take a start-up style MVP approach to create a niche platform that fulfils a very specific role which Steam does poorly, but actually directly competing with Steam for market dominance is far out of reach of that kind of approach."
