Steam dominates digital distribution

Steam dominates digital distribution

Stardock are estimating that Valve controls around 70 percent of the overall game download space, due to its time advantage and its exclusive titles.

Our estimation is that Steam as the current market leader enjoys approximately 70 per cent of the overall digital distribution market with Impulse at 10 per cent and all others combined at 20 per cent in terms of actual dollars generated per month, said Stardock boss Brad Wardell.

Another trend we have seen in the past year has been Valves successful work with getting Steamworks licensed as a DRM solution by major publishers. Once a game requires Steamworks, it is effectively cut off from us, which limits our content. Examples of this include Dawn Of War II, Empire: Total War and Modern Warfare 2.
