EA hates everyone, including the people who buy their games

and now they're getting ****** by lawsuits for it.

because battlefailed 4 was so broken and so far from finished, dice decided to stop working on bf5 and fix the game before making any DLC's and because of that EA's shareholders are loosing money. TBH i think EA can romove that room coated in solid gold and stop making deadlines so they can get more money in the long run... but knowing EA all they think is "OOOOHHHHH NOES ******************** IS MAKING COD 69 MODERN FISH 6 AND IS BEING RELEASED IN A PLAYABLE STATE IN 1 YEAR... WE MUST COPY AND PASTE OUR OLD GAMES SO THAT WE CAN BEAT THEM OR ELSE PEOPLE WILL PLAY COD AND WE WILL LOOSE ALLLLLLLLL OF OUR MONEY...

No longer? Dota was a goddamn WC3 mod. Dota 2 is what I was talking about. Consider the fact that the most popular of things are not necessarily the best. LoL's skins were waaay too outlandish and sometimes even strayed away from the champion design entirely. The worst set Valve has released was a kitty cat Drow and even then it still isn't entirely all that bad. Have you even ever played a support in League? It ******* sucks. Here guys have stats and **** I'll stand back here and do nothing. You know what's even worse? Riot's nerfs. Teemo's mushrooms are too op for you? Let's nerf all the damage and make them into speedbumps. I put in a year's worth of games and a lot of money into League, and I don't regret ever leaving that slum of a moba.
TL;DR You're wrong, and you're using **** arguements.

> 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!

That's not how it works. Steam is a digital distributor and works on comission like every other distributor.
Meaning they get a percentage of each game sold while majority goes to the makers of the game.
They make money on volume of games sold.

So that means when they make a sale, they actually subtract the difference from their own cut and the producers still get full percentage? Wow.

No, it means that when they make a sale both them and distributors take a cut.
Every time they sell a game, they get 5% of the price. So if game is $40 they get $2. If they do a 50% discount then game is $20 and they only get $1.
But they can't sell games and pay makes a royalty, they only get a percentage of what game goes for.
This is why publishers and developers love steam. Especially indie game developers. Before steam indie developer would get about 20-40% of each game sold, because rest would go to distributors and retailers. Over steam indie maker gets as much as 95% of each game sold.

Well, even in retail only a minor part of the cost is in the packaging and delivery, most is still the royalties for programmers etc and profit

Still, Gaben is love, Gaben is life...

They buy a number of copies from the developers. They've sold out on some products before they bought new keys, from what I can remember. So no, not unlimited quantity. It's also generally expensive to keep servers like Steam's up, since there are millions online downloading games, saving to cloud or watching game trailers. So all in all, they can afford a bunch of sales, but it's not like they don't have any upkeep.

Why do either when you can sell 800,000 games for $5
