    Waste of time and money investing on any internal sound card. Everyone has moved to external DAC's years ago.

    ADM-Ntek reacted to maartendc in Ubisoft takes the next step in killing game keys, enter silent key activation   
    No because once activated, you cannot resell digital games anyway. I would love to sell off like 90% of my Steam library as "used" games. You just cannot do that. The only second hand markets that still exist are on console.
     
    The only thing this combats is the grey market sites like G2a, Kingwin, Greenmangaming, etc. where people buy / obtain shady UNACTIVATED keys in bulk, and then sell them at a profit.
     
    Good development in my opinion. Developers deserve to get paid for their hard work developing games. And sites like G2A are grey market at best, and straight up illegal at worst. Also scammers flourish on these types of websites. I would not shed even a tiny tear if they all went away.

    ADM-Ntek reacted to Delicieuxz in Tim Sweeney to Steam: Don't want timed-exclusives? Match our revenue split   
    EGS doesn't do regional pricing, and as a result games are typically more expensive on EGS than on Steam for customers outside of North America. GoG did regional pricing until EGS started undercutting them. At that point, GoG released an announcement saying that they can't operate at a profit while continuing to do regional pricing at rates competitive with EGS, and so they're cancelling their regional pricing program.
     
    EGS' 12% fee isn't enough to cover transaction fees for all countries without having to add additional costs in some countries. So, that tells me that EGS couldn't possibly do regional pricing and keep their current fee system.
     
     
    From Valve's 30/25/20/0% fee system, they:
     
    Supply games for download
    Have developed and supports a comprehensive feature set that Tim Sweeney has said he doesn't plan to match
    Do lots of physical product R&D (Steam boxes, Steam link, Steam controllers, HTC Vive, etc)
    Do lots of software R&D (linux gaming, Steam features)
    Offers regional pricing
    Allows publishers / developers to print as many free Steam keys for their games as they want and sell them elsewhere, with Valve taking 0% on all of those sales - some estimates suggest that 30% of all Steam games are bought on a site other than Steam, in which case Valve would be getting 0% revenue from 30% of the games they supply hosting, download, community features, support, etc, for.
     
     
    With EGS's 12%/18% fee system, they:
     
    Supply games for download
     
    Here are some other interesting posts from the Twitter discussion where Tim said EGS would retreat from exclusives if Steam matches their 12%/18% fee:
     
    (for a large version of the image, click it, then click it again, then click it one more time)
     

     
     
    And this is another look at the claim that EGS is 12% compared to a supposed 30% on Steam. The entire thread has to be read:

    ADM-Ntek reacted to RejZoR in Detroit: Become Human will use Vulkan exclusively over DirectX on PC   
    I was like, "cool, I'm interested", until I read the part about the fucking Epic store again. Go eat shit Epic with your fucking exclusives. Do we really need this shit to go from a console exclusive to a some shitty PC platform exclusive? I mean go fuck yourselves, for reals.
