Step up how? A brand new mobile game? Even less quality control? More hardware blunder?
I can hardly wait.
Not sure how exactly. Again, im not a big PC gamer anymore so I couldn't tell you.
But Steam now has more competitors whereas before they were just on their own dominating the PC market doing whatever they want. So if Steam wants to remain dominant, they'll have to do something to keep it that way. It's just simple business.
A selfinflicted demise Valve is facing. In the past they could rely on convenience. To have no competent competiton in their way. With time they attracted enough developers, publishers and users granting them staying power. Meanwhile Valve itself and what made them crumbled into obscurity, halfassedness and a lets have others do the work mentality.
Just compare the SourceEngine, the career of its predecessor SourceEngine2 to Epics UnrealEngine, how they kept its success going and how they are utilizing it to bolster the EGS. It gives you an idea of what Valve could and should've done. Amongst other things...
