The fact could even be worse that one could initially imagine.Originally Posted by FutureSuture
If Steam remains the unique digital distribuion store, it will affect other gaming developments that otherwise would be released DRM Free.
I mean, for example, games been ported by Icculus. You buy the Windows version, and then you download the installer at the Icculus repository. A DRM free executable.
But if developers bypass that option and choose Steam, then no DRM free version avaliable for us.
Until now Linux have had few avaliable titles, we know. But Steam and his dominant market position, colud make impossible Linux gaming outside it. And this also means impossible DRM Free Linux gaming.
Don't like Steam.
