    Very interesting idea. They absolutely have the current user base and money to take on Steam, but far from the games. Also, another problem about taking on Steam is this the fact that we already own all the games. Go look at your Steam library, and think about what other games do you want. Chances are that Steam already has those games you still want to own. So the biggest problem is that Steam already has all your games, and Steam have all the games you want, so it would take something really special to lure people away from the platform.

    Tencent owns League of Legends, apparently the 'biggest' game in the world.

    LoL defnitely has the player base, but what to do now past this point. I mean I already have Steam, Origin, uPlay and whatever the hell Battle.net is call these days. 99% of the time it's a Steam title i'm playing. Then again, the market in China is different, if they cram in a couple of good Jap/Chinese titles for that market they *could* surpass some steam numbers quite easily. But that still begs the question of how they will try to conquer the Western market.

    Just my 2c on this.

    And also QQ Messanger and WheChat, the 3rd and 4th largest instant messaging services in the world. And they have a 40% share in Epic Games and 25% share in Activision Blizzard. Yeah they are already by far the biggest player in the gaming world.

    Could they not pressure those companies to pull an EA, and make future releases of their games only released on their platform? Also if they were to convince Blizzard to release games on their platform would be pretty big.

    Understatement of the century. Naspers is killing it with that investment. Not sure they're even bothering to do anything else really...
