More walled gardens, this sucks.

We don't want this, Warner Bros. Don't do it. You won't ever be a major player in the digital distribution arena and all you will do is fragment our PC gaming further. We don't want to have to have 5 clients all installed on our computers and all of our games spread out between so many different services.

I don't mind! More stores is the good kind of competition. Even if this one gets relegated to the UPlay pile.

If they stop distributing through Steam (unlikely), or make you run games through their bad platform (more likely) then it has negatives, but we'll see.

Activision are taking a lot longer than expected to expand battlenet into a full distribution platform....

No. Just stop it. 2 is already one too many.

Technically its 4. Steam, Origin, Uplay and Battle.net are the big ones.

Battlenet is just for Blizzard games.

It's still another distribution service which further fragments my library. I'm ok with multiple distribution clients, but we're getting to the point where it's going to start promoting piracy.

Quite true; however, at least I can run the games through steame or origin.

Barring the arkham franchise, what else does WB have?

JoshEngen1439d ago

Warner actually has a billion franchises: Mortal Kombat, Injustice, Shadows of Mordor, and every single LEGO game ever made. Plus, they've got Mad Max and Dying Light waiting in the wings.

Their catalog sneaks up on you.
