Direct2Drive is Steam's only real competitor... I doubt they could just buy them out.

...and the second half of that sentence makes no sense.

I <3 Gamefly. So awesome - I never pay $60 for games I just want to try and I certainly don't contribute to pirates.

just expressing my love for steam, and you should know there is also gog and few other unheard of site that are also steams competitor. steam should what game fly does if the last half doesn't make since. As far as competition i have learned it gets tiring to have different games from disc and d2d and steam it;s PITA i'd rather have it it one nice console ie steam.

The more PC game distributors there are the more strong and healthy the PC industry is. I love steam but I admire the other PC DD sites as well for supporting such an awesome platform that is PC!
