@killdozerfanacc imagine a business that's pro consumer 🤢
I also want a million different launchers with exclusives so that pirating can skyrocket again

Valve aren't perfect, but this idea they're creating mobs is utterly silly.
Or maybe it's kind of a dick move to sign exclusivity less than a month before release. I'm all for pro-dev/publish…

The replies to this tweet and article pretty much confirm the point being made.
