        If you read the whole article and not the headline, the MTX games are going to probably require a seperate launcher and storefront than Steam. So You're going to need to make a Playstation account. All the MTX games will require having stuff being bought over PSN itself.

        PC Players are going to start shitting themselves over needing a new icon on their desktop. Also there will be mobile crossplay with phones just like in Genshin.

            Within 5 years Steam's grasp on the PC market is going to diminish. Microsoft is planning to expand their launcher and store, Playstation has one in the works, and this doesn't account for stuff like Bethesda, battle.net, or EGS being absorbed

            The consoles will just expand to PC but you'r enot going to be gaming on PC the same way you are now. There's hardware locks in place that people have found where xbox controllers won't work for playstation and viceversa, it's why controllers have firmware updates now.

                Sony and Microsoft are not going to want to take the 30% from steam for everything. Both PSN and the Microsoft store are going to wind up heavily colonizing the PC space. If Sony moved everything to steam they would have their profits be cut by more than 30%. So a PC storefront and launcher are pretty much a given.

                just like EA
                just like Bethesda
                just like Ubisoft
                and they all put their stuff back on Steam because it doesn't make sense to cut out that 70% revenue
                they'll certainly have their own stores, but they'd be fools to make the same mistake as others already have

                They all left steam for the same reason (I'm a big name and people will know my games and seek them out wherever they are, so I can make my own launcher and cut out steam's cut) and all of them came back to steam for the same reason (70% of steam sales were more than 100% of their own launcher sales minus costs of running the launcher, especially since their launcher is way shittier than steam and people didn't want to deal with it, leading to an uptick of piracy or other not-buying-the-games related issues).
                As Console manufactuers sony would know what kinda costs would be accociated with running a pc storefront, but that's about the only advantage they have. Hell, since they don't actually make the games they can't force devs not to put on steam except by paying them, putting them in a potentially worse spot than the other publisher launchers, save epic.

              That makes sense, but I don't think that'll really hurt Steam. If anything, WeGame is more of a danger to Steam than Sony/MS. And still think Nintendo will jump in on the game in the next few years.

          You'll notice I said PC version, and never once mentioned steam. I knew this cope would come lmao.

          So basically they're fixing the NO GAEMS machine and turning PC players into MTX Slaves to fund their console games?

          Sounds perfect

            Most of PSN's purchases are MTXs already but the fact that the GAAS shit is day and date is the big indicator.

      microtransactions are the main monetization strategy
      but wgat sets live service apart are the constant updates to keep people playing
      they are usually small, tweaking stats to make characters fall in and out of meta to "shake things up"
      rarely will they add real content like a character or map
      and sooner or later, bit by bit, they'll have fucked with the game so much it's like you aren't even playing the same game anymore

      This is why Sony has bet it all on GAAS. It used to be you would release a game then sequels then more games and so on. Now, players are getting sucked into just a few games that provide on-going content releases that continuously monetize their users for years or even decades. That's the future of non-indie game development.

    What I want to see happen is licensed parts come out from card manufacturers. Microsoft will have cards and stuff specifically made for their games and Sony will have theirs.

    We already have branded gaming shit like headphones and monitors, and branded cards and shit is the next step. I'm fully expecting potato builds to be tossed by the wayside especially since many of these games are being certified for mobile which has a userbase upgrades much faster.

    PC gaming is going to get way more expensive if all the console manufacturers move in, gone will be the days where bargain builds are the norm.

            Yes that's exactly it, consoles will still be around but if you want console games on PC you're going to need to buy Microsoft brand shit for your rig fi you want to play Microsoft games and Sony stuff if you want to play Sony games.

            in the end consoles will be the cheapest and most affordable option anyways

    PlayStation systems were great because they let third parties do multiplayer games and they made amazing single player western and eastern games.

    Now they dont make eastern games, they make far fewer western games and all the good multiplyer games are being bought by Microsoft while they shit out garbage like destruction derby because sony has never made a good multiplayer online game outside Resistance FoM and Warhawk.
