Forums - PC Discussion - Lawsuit claims Valve is abusing its market dominance to keep prices high

I'm surprised no one on here has even raised an eyebrow at the fact that a number of publishers have been dicking around with regional prices over the past few years.

Ok after reading more into it, It seems this in no way effects "Discount" Prices. So the is nothing stopping Epic or another developer from having a permanent Discount on their games on the Epic store if they wished to have them at a lower price and take advantage of that less then 30% cut epic takes. That agreement is more about protecting Valve from developers who might "Rise" the price on steam to make up for the 30% cut Valve take.

IIRC some countries have laws in place that require an item to have been on sale for the regular price for a certain amount of time before it's allowed to be discounted from that price. So there is still something stopping them from doing it that way.

Also, @bold than*

Oh crap Ka-pi96 as turned into a grammar nazi, he must be an awfully bored masochist to correct this sites spelling, even spellcheck is frightened of VGChartz.

So your saying you feel a professional duty to uphold grammatical standards on VGChartz, all I can say is you will need insanely good luck and a lot of stiff drinks.
