You mean...like Steam?

Just so.

That's the whole point.

It's one thing to accept Steam for what it is because the entry barrier is so low. I do that myself - even without ever spending more than ~$10, I've spent a couple hundred cumulatively on steam or steam-linked games.

To pretend that there's some fundamental difference in what Valve does with their digital sales (no lending no resale no guarantees) and the proposed-and-withdrawn XBone policies is disingenuous or stupid. Don't be either of those.

At least I can choose to stop using Steam without stopping to use the platform I'm playing on in it's entirety.

Oh, absolutely.Thumbsup

Hence my utter frustration with 'special' type of person who spews dogshit like "I won't but it if it's not on steam" - or even worse (God forbid!) "I want a Steam console".
