I can't edit so, I will make a new post. Epic want to control what they sell. Right now Microsoft and Sony dictate the prices. Think about when Valve made new content for L4D and the guys at Xbox and PS3 had to pay while us PC guys had it free. steam has opened alot of developers eyes to profits not available before. Microsoft and Sony are not the only companies that need to watch the bottom line and bend over to investors.

Well, PS3 didn't even get L4D, so I don't know how they got content for it.

No, fact is, Sony and Microsoft take a standard fee, the same way Steam does, but pricing is, ultimately, up to the developer/publisher and they use the big, bad consoles as an excuse to charge.

@kcuthbertson I can't hit reply or edit, so that post was to bozebo. At work and for some odd reason this site is screwed up.


Steam has competition, even more now since Origin. Microsoft and Sony do not in digital distribution.

And if you were right our PC games would be the same price as your console games. I can buy NBA 2k 12 for $29.99.......
