    What was the thing I signed up to for £1 in December to play Sea of Thieves for a month on my PC, if it wasn't this?

    all of them joined forced to end Steam dominance, while this is not bad as competition is always good, but its too late IMO as steam will still be dominant and backed up by its users.

    Re: Microsoft announces Xbox Game Pass for PC

    How is this different from the current xbox games pass on PC? Is it all new with PC exclusives or have they just expanded the list of play anywhere titles and announced this as a 'new' thing?

    I have no idea what you're trying to say here. MS' games, at least, will be on XGP and downloadable through Steam like TMCC will be.

    The current implementation is a (intended) side-effect of how Play Anywhere titles work. This - XGP PC - is something completely different.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Steam is just too good to beat right now. From an objective point of view it just offers so much more than the others now. Do hope good competition arrives though, as it can only mean lower prices for us!

    Re: Microsoft announces Xbox Game Pass for PC

    I wonder if they'll be another one trying to draw people in with freebees.

    I don't see anyone being able to match Steam.

    Or with exclusives. If for example they bring the entire HALO series to PC, but only available in their store. Id buy it in a heartbeat though
