@aross2004: Unlikely. They do still sell a lot of collectibles. Here in Canada, they have converted their stores in such a way that this is their main focus.

If anything, GameStop will survive as a specialty, gaming related toy store with a bit of video games on the side.

This is a long time coming. Last visual overhaul was almost 10 years ago.

Go Valve!

@cappy: Just to be clear, all the games mentioned so far includes items you can obtain for free, this is not what i allude to.

I'm talking about the pricing of items to be purchased. Warframe's frames are not reasonably priced.

I know, because i bought some myself.

@cappy: Just take a look at the pricing on cosmetics in both the games you mentioned.

The predatory nature of these prices goes to show the target audience is still people willing to pay far too much to receive far too little.

If these games did not require a player base of a certain size for those players to engage with, you would be booted out in a heartbeat.

Was looking forward to giving this a chance until the inevitable "Don't need no man" quip at the end.

@Barighm: If you've never used it, or are a younger player recently getting into the pc gaming scene, it is understandable that you may not be aware of what Valve has done / what Steam currently offer in term of features, and what those features may mean to it's users.

Pc gaming in the late 90's / early 00's was like the Wild West. You had to hunt down different version of patches to play on different servers.

You had to write down IP addresses to join servers. Hunting down proper drivers and game fixes, or finding proper guides to improve performance required more web surfing and research.

There was little support and certainly no refunds.

So, for what it's worth, Steam brought us all those things and made everything a lot more streamlined.

@nikon133: A very fair assessment.

This is one of the big reasons why i am not lashing out at developers for making the jump. From their perspective, at least, for the time being, this is a golden opportunity.

I just hope they understand that, at some point, the store will saturate and visibility will go down. Fortnite is also bound to stop being the golden goose and Epic will eventually have to 70 percent that shit up.

From a customer standpoint, i can't say i am really enticed to follow...
