They absolutely can, and I feel they should. A store that chooses to sell (third party) goods is free to sell what it feels is okay to sell. In a way, a store even has a responsibility to consider what it sells; a responsibility Valve has always shied away from.

If Epic doesn't want to sell something, the creator is still free to sell it in other ways. It's not censorship to not carry a product in a store. You don't see the local car dealership selling porn magazines.

That's sort of what the Jim Sterling video was pointing out: Replacing one monopoly with another won't benefit consumers. Giving us the choice to buy where we want with the features we want at the price we want is what gives consumers power. Epic buying exclusives isn't really that helpful. It's not even helping developers since publishers are pocketing most of that cash.

As consumers we are all ****ed anyway... look at the streaming service landscape upcoming. It's not buy Netflix and you're good anymore - you need Netflix, CBS All Access, Amazon Prime, Disney+... DC has one... NBC is coming out with one and pulling their content from Netflix. Reports say that piracy is on the rise and these companies are making it worse for everyone.

At least we are "buying" our games and don't have to pay monthly fees yet, but it'll come. Then we will all be split because we can't afford all the services. It's actually all very anti-consumer and it sucks.

With Origin Access, even the Basic version, you could already in theory rely on a library that's on a monthly fee. Microsoft is banking big on its Game Pass, Sony has PSNow, and who knows what Google's intentions are with Stadia. I'm willing to bet more places are working on this.

I would not be surprised, however, to learn that Valve is doing absolutely nothing in this area. It feels like they've been slow to respond to changes in the industry and among gamers, and they're experimenting in areas that aren't really of interest to the public at large, like VR, the Steampad and SteamLink.

At this point I'd say that the Epic games store is far from in danger of becoming a monopoly. I'd say it will be an uphill battle to even become a minority competitor to Steam. Valve has managed to develop some insanely strong brand loyalty, just look at how many people are pissed at being forced to use the Epic Games store. (My gripe is I feel a lot of Valve's loyalty and goodwill is based on how it was years ago, and the company that exists today no longer deserves to be treated as the savior of PC gaming.)

I'll agree about the different streaming services though. That has become a real **** show. I still have a DVD (Blu-ray) subscription to Netflix, just to avoid this nonsense about having to have a dozen different streaming service accounts. The transition to digital has made things a lot worse in some regards.

That being said, for buying games I don't feel the different store fronts are that bad, since it's a pay once deal and you don't have to maintain a bunch of monthly subs. It will be different if it goes to a subscription based model, but I don't see that as being particularly viable for PC games.

The game publishers can do that subscription based thing because they own the rights to all the games they offer in their store. Valve isn't really in a position to do that because their own game catalogue is very small. While Valve setup a store front, they never moved on to being a game publisher where they could end up with a big catalogue of games to offer for a subscription (honestly I don't think the guys running Valve are probably cut out for that anyway).

I don't disagree on the last bit at all: my view of Steam is more nostalgic than it is current. This EGS thing has made me look at Steam and realise I no longer shop on it as it's not an enjoyable platform to browse. I do still like the features it has: Workshop, Forums, Guides, Achievements, Screenshots, Friends, etc. I actually enjoy looking at the EGS since there aren't that many games and most of them I would truly enjoy. Steam is like walking into a 2nd hand store where maybe you'll find a gem if you look hard enough, but I just can't be bothered. All my wishlist and Steam purchases lately have been from recommendations here or on some podcast. Never from browsing.

I'm pretty sure that if Valve wanted to, it could easily cut deals the way Netflix does and offer a subscription service within Steam, akin to Origin Access Basic. EA and Microsoft don't own all the games in their service catalogues either - I think DOOM16 for instance is part of the MS Game Pass.

Likely due to regional pricing I guess

Well, dang these discounts. I bought Walking Dead Final Season as I've invested too much time to leave the story hanging.


Also took a gamble and bought John Wick Hex. Really unlike me to go for an unknown quantity but the price was very good and Bithell have never let me down yet.

Epic Games Store's first sale is off to a rocky start

Quote:
Publishers pulling games for not being informed of sale

Remember that really good sale the Epic Games Store started yesterday? Turns out not everything is going well in paradise. As has been discovered over the last day, a lot of publishers are not happy with Epic dropping a sale out of the blue. As a matter of fact, a few games that were previously up for pre-order on the store are now not available because Epic didn't inform anyone of its plans. Publisher Paradox Interactive, specifically, has pulled Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 since it didn't want to participate in the sale.

While that sounds a little odd, it has to do with the offer Epic is giving buyers for spending more than $14.99. Since you'll receive an additional $10 off of more expensive games, it creates a scenario where games are now being devalued before they even launch. While Epic is taking the hit with regard to its own profits for that deal, it is creating a scenario where the publishers cannot compete on other platforms for the same games (Bloodlines 2 is not an Epic exclusive).

Speaking with Kotaku, a Paradox representative said, "We are in discussion with Epic regarding the temporary removal of Vampire: the Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 from the Epic Game Store. The game will return to the store soon! Any purchases made while the game was discounted during the Epic Mega Sale will be honored and no Masquerade violations will be assessed." It would have been nice if Epic allowed companies to opt out of the sale, though.

Another odd case comes with Supergiant's Hades. Originally listed at a sale price of $6.99, the developer quietly raised the price of the game to $24.99 and altered the sale price to be $14.99. While the increased price was something Supergiant always intended to do as it added content (the game launched in early access with the Epic Games Store last year), it originally pledged to inform buyers well in advance of any price hikes. With Epic surprising the world with this mega sale, Supergiant felt the need to increase the price at the last minute. The studio has since apologized, but this could have all been avoided if Epic was more transparent with the publishers and developers it is hosting.

I wonder if these companies are reading their contracts with epic to sell on their store. Theres probably some fine print in there saying they will sale price if they want to

Well, the thing is it really wan't a sale price, it was a $10 credit when spending over a certain amount, it is no different than the $5 credit for spending over $30 that Valve did during the Lunar sale, it could be used on non sale items as well. So it wasn't really putting the game on sale it remained the same price, and the developer/publishers still get 88% of the original price, as in if a game was $60 and with the $10 credit it was $50, Epic still paid to that developer 88% of the $60 price, and not 88% of the $50 price. So it is rather strange that Paradox did that, since it wasn't losing them any money at all.


SuperGiant Games is a rather weird situation. They put the game on a % off at the beginning, that ended up being less than $14.99, and the $10 credit didn't apply to it. People then started to Tweet them asking if they could actually change the % off so that the price would be above $14.99 so that the $10 credit would apply, and Super Giant basically said Yes and they changed the discount price to be above the $14.99 threshold.

Then someone else, later, asked them about increasing the price of the game, not related to sale, and Super Giant stated they will do it but the will give plenty of warning before they will do it. Then a few hours later they decided to increase the price to $24.99 without any warning.
Then people got upset, some stating they are probably breaking various consumer laws throughout the world, and some hours later Supergiant put the game back to $19.99, issues an apology, stated that screwed up, and that the price will go up to $24.99 after the sale is over with.

I'm not really surprised. I'd thought the discounts on pre-order games was very unusual and wondered about the risk of devaluing them.


The other thing that was really strange was the lack of a shopping basket. The idea of having to buy games and checkout one at a time is such a basic failure for a storefront you wonder if they have given any thought to it.

^ Steam didn't have an option to cap download speeds from 2003 to 2017.

That's as basic as you can get for a Digital Distribution platform.

That is completely false. Not sure where you got that information from but that feature existed for years before 2017.

I love how justifying Epic’s failures hinges on what Steam has or hasn’t done, and not only that, but we hinge it on bullshit information that isn’t even remotely accurate.

Okay, apparently Steam added that around 2014.

2003 to 2014, there was no bandwidth throttle in Steam.
That's still more than a decade .

Youre arguing bandwidth throttle vs a shopping cart? GTFO with that garbage.

The functionality of the Epic store sucks at the moment. To be honest, I was quite shocked at the current state of it. I get it that it's "new", but seriously it should have had more capabilities from the get go.

Caved in and purchased all 3 QD titles for $30 total!
I enjoyed Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy) despite its lust for QTEs and $30 for three games was too hard to pass.
