Allies as in your spending on Steam funnels into the Xbox division, fuelling MSs warchest of IPs and revenue. We be gaming step-brothers haha
Hypothetically speaking, the only way Gabe would agree to anything is if A. The price is right and B. MS only adds to Steam, not take anything away/make it worse. Like adding Game Pass onto Steam would be a great addition. Having a tab on Steam for Xbox Studio titles wouldn’t be a big deal, due to the sheer volume of titles available. Valve IPs going on Game Pass wouldn’t affect you, only add value.
I never implied to say my hopes supersede yours. But the idea that PC gamers would be involuntarily “conscripted” into the console war is an amusing thought.
Yeah, I egt the whole "support the cause" type thing ya'll guys have going, but I'm not really into that vision. I'd rather they just leave Valve alone and stop consuming.
Look at the "partnership" between Acti and Blizz, which has now more or less turned into Acti just purely owning and restructuring Blizz from the inside out, that's not something I'd ever wish on Valve.
Having a tab?, why not just do what they are doing currently and just release them onto the store, instead of shoving in an Xbox tab?. Don't need to specifically have such a tab when you can see the games on the store, follow devs on it, search for tags etc.
Valve IP's going to Xbox consoles wouldn't affect me no, because that's happened in the past, but enforcing Xbox style changes to a client I love would affect me. I don't want their UI cramping Steam's style, nor do I want any MS style changes made to the client in general. Steam's client is worlds ahead of the Xbox app.
You have a dream, your dream conflicts against mine, hence why I see direct conflict. I want things to remain separate as they currently are, not engulfed by one party and assimilated.
Dunno why it's amusing, it just comes off as petty and pointless. Only trolls and "hur durf I'm winning teh war this time" type people would see that.
Step right up come on in, feel the buzz in your veins, I'm like an chemical electrical right into your brain and I'm the one who killed the Radio, soon you'll all see
So pay up motherfuckers you belong to "V"
