Polygon: The battle between Steam and Epic Games Store is heating up
Ben Kuchera, writing for Polygon:
The good news for players is that everyone wants their business, and the battle for that business is structured in such a way that prices are going down, while profits — at least, in some cases — may be going up. Epic Games has found a way to get players to more closely consider the economics of storefronts, and it did so with both exclusives and a lower price. This won’t be the last time we see this approach as the platform wars continue in 2019.
I nearly titled my piece Activision, Microsoft, and Platforms “Platform Wars”.
