MySpace/FaceBooK to crush Steam within five years? Ten?

When it comes to pc gaming, you've got a number of platforms/portals/whatever. But you're still buying/playing the same game. Steam is falling behind as MySpace and FaceBooK continue to crush other areas of entertainment.

When it comes to pc gaming, you've got a number of platforms/portals/whatever. But you're still buying/playing the same game. Steam is falling behind as MySpace and FaceBooK continue to crush other areas of entertainment.

The simple fact is you don't go to Steam to talk with females or your family, do you? You don't go to Steam to listen to music or anything else. You play "advanced tech games", bs on the forums about those games, and that's it. You don't even have the option to play lower tech games. Not even to mention that those types of games are gaining major grounds in the tech area.

I have a major feeling if Steam doesn't get more advanced within the next two years, these other platforms are gonna soon realise they too can start selling digital copies of video games. Once this happens Steam is gonna dwindle back into nothingness and only heavily feature their own created games. Battle.net maybe realises this and is probably the reason they're sticking with their own titles.

pc platform, still the largest gaming platform on the planet. MySpace/FaceBooK joins ship, we'll no longer have to point to Valve or Blizzard to make people realise pc gaming is far from dead.
