Discussion:

 

Valve’s streaming service, Steam.tv, has launched.  Is this the end of youtube gaming? Will it be a real competitor to twitch? https://www.pcgamer.com/valves-new-streaming-platform-steamtv-is-officially-live-now/

 

Battlefield 5 preorders are ‘weak’ and chief design officer Patrick sunderlund is going to step down from EA  Will it flop because of the political controversy around it, or are they releasing it too close to RD2 and COD, or is an overall dissatisfaction with EA (or all of the above)?  https://www.vgr.com/battlefield-5-pre-order-sales-weak/
