Doctors and EA hates him.
User avatar #68 to #26 - ragdollomg (12/27/2013) [-]
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...

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!

#53 to #29 - angelusprimus (12/27/2013) [-]
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.
User avatar #87 to #53 - seras ONLINE (12/27/2013) [-]
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.
#117 to #87 - angelusprimus (12/27/2013) [-]
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.
User avatar #149 to #117 - stripey (12/27/2013) [-]
That's awesome
#31 to #29 - pettdavids (12/27/2013) [-]
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...
#47 to #29 - comradewinter ONLINE (12/27/2013) [-]
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.

Too bad you are actually paying something while steam is free.
Those games are only free to gold.
User avatar #184 to #177 - kinginyellow (12/27/2013) [-]
Ok they gave away a game, cool. I know it's not better but everyone is treating him like a god for giving away a couple games over the years. And free to play doesn't count as being given away.
User avatar #185 to #184 - trollyando (12/27/2013) [-]
The things is, steam is extremely user friendly, that's why people love it.
User avatar #186 to #185 - kinginyellow (12/27/2013) [-]
Well most systems are, which I don't get. I've been told using xbox or ps3 dashboard is "too hard" sometimes and I really wanna know if people find it that confusing.
User avatar #187 to #186 - trollyando (12/27/2013) [-]
You don't get the deals you get with steam on ps3 or xbox. Plus steam is open to everyone, from simplistic indies to interesting ideas.
User avatar #188 to #187 - kinginyellow (12/27/2013) [-]
I don't know where you get your info but Ps3 and Xbox give great deals quite frequently, even to people without gold or ps+, and they also have lots of indie titles too.
User avatar #189 to #188 - trollyando (12/27/2013) [-]
I have a ps3, deals are pretty much non-existent on titles nobody cares about anymore, only happening in really special moments like christmas or thanksgiving.
Also the indie library of both ps3 and xbox is nowhere near the one steam has.
User avatar #198 to #189 - kinginyellow (12/28/2013) [-]
Well on xbox deals are happening quite a bit, on relevant games too. And Steam has a bigger indie library, but that doesn't count at all for quality. Honestly most of those games are pushed aside.

Well, that just not true. You are also forgeting that Dota is just not as fun as LoL, imo.

#183 to #100 - stillnotbob (12/27/2013) [-]
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.

I've personally played both but I'll still stick to lol. Not sure why to be honest. I don't dislike dota but I just don't get into it for some reason. I think the runes and summoner spells are a good thing lol has but dota doesn't. Away from that and the art style, they are basically the same thing.
