Looks like Apple doesn’t want gamers playing games outside of their ecosystem.
I can be patient, but I'm not waiting!

Good to see apple standing up against the largest PC DRM producer.
If you're worse than me: You're a n00b.

They don't want to pay Steam royalties. Nothing new.

Nah, you got that backwards. They want steam to pay them a cut, because steam is "store like" even if it's just a streaming app.
It's not the fall that kills you, it's the rapid deceleration.....

I'd laugh if Valve provided means to install their app through other means.

Apples deserves it after trying to tell people it's illegal to run software they don't approve on the hardware their customers paid for.

I have no interest in garbage strangled garden so-called ecosystems, but it's still stupid.

Apple is one of the least consumer friendly companies on the planet. I don't know anyone can try to assume Valve is anywhere near the same league as a company which will try to prevent you from having your phone repaired because they'd rather sell you a new one, or a company which slows your phone down so that you'll assume you need a new one. OR a company that would sue its competitors because they used a similar shape to their own phone as if they owned the patent on a rectangle with rounded corners.
