Basically, this.

You're paying to rent a remote PC from NVIDIA. They would rather you pay to rent their games when you stream, or alternately buy them a second time. Because it doesn't matter that you had to buy their game in the first place in order to play it on GFN. By God, you should pay twice and pad that bottom line, you consumer scum!

Glad NVIDIA is continuing to support their GameStream solution too so I can just stream it from my own PC and give publishers the middle finger. Doesn't matter if GFN gives me less lag if the fookin' publishers won't let me use it.

A real escape key? A real keyboard? Huge SSD options?

<weeps tears of joy>

First they finally update the iPad mini with my wishlist of features to boot (to borrow a turn of phrase from tBC, the money flew out of my account so fast it imploded a window at my bank), now this.

I can't wait to try the new keyboard especially. I keep being tempted to upgrade my MacBook Pro, but every time I am, I visit the Apple Store and type on the current keyboards and it quickly cures me of any desire to own one for another 3-6 months. Put this together with ThunderMag's MagSafe USB-C and I might actually start budgeting for an upgrade.

but but but m'uh steam rreeeeeeeeeeeeee

Where were the complaints when everything was a "steam exclusive". :whistling:

:rolleyes:

Great example of false equivalency, but no. Remind me when, again, Valve was paying developers not to use anyone else's stores and openly touting said exclusivity? Oh wait, they weren't. Stuff appeared on GoG, Uplay (UGH!), the Mac App Store, etc. and continued to be on Steam too. They were even cool with developers handing out keys for stuff bought elsewhere (which I did several times with some older games when I was new to Steam).

Epic is paying for exclusives. Epic pays to keep third party products off other storefronts. They're doing the same crap Sony and Microsoft have been doing to each other for the past decade and a half with their consoles. That is not even remotely in the same universe as a developer not putting a game on another PC storefront because they just don't want to put in the time/effort, or another storefront doesn't offer enough of a ready userbase to be financially attractive when working with limited funds.
