Why would they? That would be stupid
Check out the windows central article, think it's coming but maybe not soonI'll use it for Gamepass but that's about it. The way the games are packaged limits what I can do with them after buying them. I like to tinker games before I get into them.
If they start letting me file-dive more easily I'll buy the games from them again, I always liked the acheivement system on Xbox.
meh, i can wait, am patient. one really great thing about Steam is the sales, having to wait for a new release is fine, i'm soooo behind on playing my collection.PC Bros, I am here to warn you. "Coming first to gamepass on PC" is going to be something we here a lot pretty soon. Expect future MS steam releases to be delayed 6 months. If they come out at all.
Because the minimum viable product is one that sells and launches games. Most people prioritize the game over the launcher.The Xbox app is better than the EGS but still miles off Steam.
The question should be why do either of them think that it's ok to have launchers that are so far off Steam in terms of functionality in 2021.

The real question is why do people think newer platforms can magically add all the features of the one that has been around for 2 decades. Do these people who think steam is so amazing, not value the man-centuries put into developing it and improving it?
if they get this right it could be hugeAccording to my sources, there are three big changes coming to the new Store that will benefit developers:
These changes will allow developers to bring their Win32 apps to the new Store without any changes to their existing code. In the past, developers were required to package their Win32 apps as an MSIX, and were forced to use Microsoft's own store-driven update and commerce platforms. This will no longer be necessary with the new Store.
- Allow developers to submit unpackaged Win32 apps to the Store
- Allow developers to host apps and updates on their own content delivery network (CDN)
- Alllow developers to use third-party commerce platforms in apps
Finally, Microsoft will allow developers to use their own in-app revenue streams, bypassing Microsoft's own commerce platform entirely. I'm told that Microsoft will not take a cut from app developers who do leverage their own in-app commerce channel, which I believe would be an industry first.

Windows Store is absolute trash.
Microsoft is good at buying other companies but that’s about it.

So basically if I'm to start a new car company tomorrow I should just throw together a car in line with the standards from 2 decades ago and expect it to sell?
After all, all people care about is getting from A-B right?
