I'm all for console exclusives coming to PC, though I much prefer Sony's approach of releasing them 2-3 years later compared to MS's policy to release them at the same time. It kind of makes their console redundant for those who have a good gaming PC. One thing MS does right though is sharing the XBOX environment across both PC and XBOX consoles. I'm curious as to why Sony isn't doing the same; having their own storefront to sell PC versions and a PlayStation ID that would work across both PC and PlayStation consoles. Why would they give Valve 30%? Sure Steam is popular but surely PC gamers who want PlayStation games wouldn't care if they had to get them via a new store/launcher, no? Maybe Sony has a deal with Valve where they pay less, I don't know but I just find it weird that a gaming giant like Sony doesn't have it's own storefront for releasing its games on PC and is instead relying on others while having to give them a cut.
