    How many Gaming Portals/Platforms/Marketplaces are there online now?

    Lo people

    Taking into account Steam and so forth...how many are there now? For both buying games and for subscription access

    We're going to see a swing toward subscription gaming platforms now - pay monthly and have access to loads of games but not own them one you stop paying. Spotify for games if you will. Stadia and Uplay etc

    So for the consoles you have :

    XBox Live
    Playstation Plus
    Nintendo Online

    PC however there are a few few stores and clients now :

    Steam
    EA Origin
    XBox Game Pass for PC
    GOG Galaxy (DRM Free)
    Ubisoft Launcher
    Battle Net
    Bethesda Launcher
    Epic Games Launcher

    All those above have stores attached to be able to buy stuff.

    Streaming side of things you have Playstation Now which is a bit of a rip off and I believe Microsoft are launching something similar or have done already.
