I know Icefrog is responsible for this, but goddamnit I love Gaben and Valve    
>Release all heroes for free   
>Cosmetics can be gotten for free   
>You can play the game, not buy a single thing, and still have no advantage over other players   
>Game gets balanced perfectly (nerfing base damage/base stats and minor spell adjustments)

Im not even sure how this **** works but let me take a stab at something
> Digital copy of a game
> No packaging
> No shipping costs
> Unlimited quantity
Doesn't this mean that theoretically you can sell a million games at full price while paying the developers a small royalty and basically get rich as **** off a system like this? he could sell a billion digital games at a dollar because he stands to lose nothing, were as a retailer stands to lose everything. When you put this in perspective Gabe is a ******* genius ALL HAIL HIM!

steam leaves me more broke than any other gaming company. Why? good business model. I can't resist a good deal.

so how does steam work exactly?

do the pay a fee to sell the games or do they pay royalties for every copy sold?
#51 to #34 - angelusprimus (12/27/2013) [-]
Steam takes 5% of every copy sold, rest of the money goes to the publisher and developer.
So if you buy a 40$ game on steam, steam keeps 2$. Which isn't much, until you calculate huge volume of sales they have.
