And to actually put money where its mouth is, the company has just opened the doors to its shiny new Epic Games Store to entice developers with an 88/12 revenue sharing arrangement.

Epic Games puts Steam on notice by launching its own store

Now that Fortnite is well on the path to world domination, Epic has decided to take the fight to Steam. Today, Epic announced that it's launching a game store of its own, complete with an aggressive revenue sharing model that seems to be entirely focused on disrupting digital distribution.

Now you can turn Raspberry Pi into a Steam Link

Now you can turn Raspberry Pi into a Steam Link

Late last month, Valve discontinued the Steam Link and sold off its remaining stock during the Steam Autumn Sale. While the Steam Link app will continue to be supported (along with existing Steam Link hardware), the app isn't the best solution for some folks looking stream from their PC to another device.

Steam Link hardware is dead, long live the Steam Link app

Valve is arguably great at software, both its own games as well as its game publishing and distribution platform.

Less painful, that is, if you didn't have a rough time setting up the VIVE in the first place.
