To be honest, I don 't know how much it helps this being on Gama or at all but it 's hard to argue that TB hasn 't had a Twitter feed like a sewer these past few weeks and has used his position to double down on the Gamergate-isms ...

Hmmm. I don 't really ...

Hmmm. I don 't really agree with Rohrer 's idea that developers shouldn 't discount or any of the recent influx of do-not-discount-race-to-the-bottom stuff. I 'm very, very much in favour of discounting and deep discounting at that but I 'm also broadly in favour of edging things towards a ...

AFAIK, it 's only Greenlight bundles where devs would have expressly granted Steam keys afterwards although this might have changed in recent times. r n r nEither way, it was sort of decided that Steam keys are things you get -anyway- at some point so at this point, it 's ...

Yup. Even then though we ...

Yup. Even then though we still had a healthy and thriving shareware scene, mail order and more. r n r nI honestly can 't think of a time when we ever had one single model. We 've always had -dominant- models but even that has shifted with time to be ...

It 's also kinda telling how little bundling did for sales looking at that graph. As you 're fully aware one of the earlier benefits was an uptick in promotion and in sales as well as a bit of cash quickly, that 's not really been a thing outside Hundles ...

Contrast this with the App Store, which literally just has these sell the best and we like these -- that 's it Android is somewhere in the middle, with a Netflix-style algorithm using what your friends play, but it 's still nowhere near as advanced as Steam ALREADY is, never ...

In his article his argument ...

In his article his argument is quite simply there are more games being developed, and the demand for games is remaining static. r n r nWell, that 's just not true at all. There is literally no evidence that this is the case. Sales are up, the audience is broader ...

Well, given launch sales are generally up and pre-orders are soaring, I guess so Discounting tends to bring in more people rather than cutting down the pool of people already buying games. r n r nAt least for now.

I like the idea of lazy offence it means that for the rest of it, people really have to put some effort in. Really work at that offence. I guess they 're the folks who are trying to be offended, right Not like this guy, he 's just lazily offended ...

Well, there 's not really much point in me asking stuff like that for a couple of reasons. The big one being that I 'm trying to give people a leg up so they know where the land lies right now not what might happen in the future. r n ...
