Good job Valve. Other DD networks should stop complaining and learn why Valve has the majority of the PC market.

didn't someone try to sue them or something because they were becoming a monopoly in the DD industry?

all i could do was lol at that (the lawsuit or whatever it was). they're doing so well because they actually know wtf they're doing now.

a monopoly would be somehow having exclusivity of the DD market which they don't have the DD market is an open market just that valve is offering the best features for free and are treating the PC gamers better then everyone else don't see how any company can just decide to sue that.

that aside since its an open market if anyone wants to compete with steam they can but they gotta do a damn fine job of pleasing their consumer base well that momenterly off topic sorry people.

A cool feature would be to recommend games based on your system specs

Tony-Red-Grave2843d ago

the fact steam doesnt have that pissedme off i tried playing crysis 2 on full settings and welll yea it was terrible but what woukld be great is for them to have/add a nice opton which shows you the list of games your system can handle then you cana filter it by FPS so the game you get could play at its best 24/7 intead of screwing after you got it
