Das ist doch auch so ein Fall. Wobei ich es für meine Mutter tun würde, aber in diesem Fall eher nicht.


#4349

Naja, ich meine ja als Kind, wo man schon egoistischer veranlagt ist. Also früher habe ich nicht gerne geteilt.

Ja, stimmt. Ich habe vor einer Weile darüber nachgedacht was für dumme, verwöhnte Kinder mein Bruder und ich eigentlich waren.

Dürfen sie gern auf BR Generell ausweiten :stuck_out_tongue:

Ist natürlich schon ziemlich blöd, wenn die Jungen Fortnite spielen und dadurch nicht mehrere Stunden lang vorm Fernseher hocken können, um sich lebensrelevante Dinge wie z.B. seine Hochzeit anzugucken.

Das war vielleicht ursprünglich die wahre Bedeutung hinter dem BRexit. :kappa:

European Commission - Press release

Antitrust: Commission sends Statements of Objections to Valve and five videogame publishers on “geo-blocking” of PC video games

Brussels, 5 April 2019

The European Commission has informed Valve, owner of the “Steam” video game distribution platform, and five videogame publishers, of its preliminary view that the companies prevented consumers from purchasing videogames cross-border from other Member States, in breach of EU competition rules.

Commissioner Margrethe Vestager , in charge of competition policy, said: “In a true Digital Single Market, European consumers should have the right to buy and play video games of their choice regardless of where they live in the EU. Consumers should not be prevented from shopping around between Member States to find the best available deal. Valve and the five PC video game publishers now have the chance to respond to our concerns.”

The Commission has addressed Statements of Objections to Valve , owner of the world’s largest PC video game distribution platform called “Steam”, and five PC video game publishers, Bandai Namco, Capcom, Focus Home, Koch Media and ZeniMax .

Valve – via Steam – digitally distributes PC video games from each of the five PC video game publishers concerned by the investigation. At the same time, Valve provides “activation keys” to these publishers.

These “activation keys” are required for consumers to play a number of PC video games bought on channels other than Steam, i.e. downloaded or purchased on physical media, such as a DVD. After the purchase of certain PC video games, users need to confirm their “activation key” on Steam to authenticate the game and be able to play it. This system is used for a wide range of games, including sports, simulation and action games.

The Commission’s preliminary view is that Valve and the five PC video game publishers entered into bilateral agreements to prevent consumers from purchasing and using PC video games acquired elsewhere than in their country of residence (so-called “geo-blocking”). This is against EU antitrust rules.

In particular, the Commission is concerned that:

  • Valve and the five PC video game publishers agreed, in breach of EU antitrust rules, to use geo-blocked activation keys to prevent cross-border sales , including in response to unsolicited consumer requests (so-called “passive sales”) of PC video games from several Member States (i.e. Czechia, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, and in some cases Romania). This may have prevented consumers from buying cheaper games available in other Member States.
  • Bandai Namco, Focus Home, Koch Media and ZeniMax, broke EU antitrust rules by including contractual export restrictions in their agreements with a number of distributors other than Valve. These distributors were prevented from selling the relevant PC video games outside the allocated territories, which could cover one or more Member States. These practices may have prevented consumers from purchasing and playing PC video games sold by these distributors either on physical media, such as DVDs or through downloads.

The Commission’s preliminary view, outlined in its Statements of Objections, is that these business practices partitioned markets according to national borders and restricted passive sales to consumers. These business practices ultimately denied European consumers the benefits of the EU’s Digital Single Market to shop around for the most attractive offer.

If confirmed, this would infringe Article 101 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, which prohibits anti-competitive agreements. The sending of a Statement of Objections does not prejudge the outcome of the investigation.

Geil, noch ein Launcher. Jetzt noch Exclusives einkaufen bitte. :kappa: Hängt Tencent nicht eh schon bei Epic mit drin?

Ich fand interessant was Gregor bei Game Talk gesagt hat. Nachdem Raubkopierer mit den ersten Streaminganbietern zurückgegangen sind, sind sie mit den vielen Anbietern zur Zeit wieder auf dem Vormarsch.
Kundenfreundlich, jaja.
