Funny that customers feel the need to defend stores and publishers. “The store i buy from is better than the store you buy from…” Ridiculous.
I agree with OP, would rather buy it on steam. And if the major factor is money returned to devs. Sell the game for more on steam if the % share is less. Id happily pay more for a steam version with better steam API integration,workshop support etc. Or at least have the option too.
Rather than it be EPIC games version, with limited support or nothing.
You’ll be able to buy it on Steam a year after launch, so you’ll have the option.
Though if workshop is a big sticking point for you, remember that Epic has had one since last year.
Ye, but thats not very customer friendly is it. Or helpful to the devs in the long run. If im already waiting a year, i might aswell wait even longer and get it on sale… We often hear that devs are using epic because they get a better share of profits than steam, which is fair and fine. But why not sell it for more on steam then at the same time? and get the same share of profits no matter the store its sold on, and sell more copies in total.
Workshop isnt the only sticking point, i just find steam to be more feature complete as a platform compared to epic,win10 store,gog,origin store etc. Id buy it on steam over any of those stores, unless the price was considerably less in comparison.
Disappointing to see devs become part of these schemes (Platform exclusivity FOMO) and disappointing to see customers defending it.
