Does EGS pose a risk to Steam?

  1. Yes... It's about time Steam had competition.

    I see this as getting rewards for shopping, but not better pricing and sales.
    Like anything else, I like choices and competition. I have no problem using other venues.

    To each their own. I do not understand people going om about Epic. Shop where you want.

    well, anything goes. i don't expect freebies or -90% off prices i just think that its good to see Valve act.
    hell i have my account around 15 years, maybe more, and i will never look back or sideways because its just a great platform.
    so anything goes in my eyes. even if those "loyalty offers" will be pointless, its still a good move by them.

    BTW something I rarely see mentioned in these discussions is the Steam Streaming feature. Everyone is on about, how Steam has Shopping Cart or User Reviews and what not, but I really think, Streaming is a overlooked feature. One that could easily sway my personal purchasing decision in favor of Steam.

    I’ve been playing with it for a few weeks now and can say it is working damn well. At home where I have 1Gb connection between the main PC and a custom made AIO office/internet PC, the picture quality and input lag are so good, that I can enjoy say the Witcher 3 no problem at all. Even games more sensitive to input lag as Dead Cells are no problem. That is with a controller, with a mouse you can feel it much more, but I rarely play any games on a M+KB anymore. Also tested it in the office – 100Mb at home, 100Mb in the office on the same ISP and it is playable. Had a few hitches, but still, having my own cloud streaming is pretty sick!
