Valve in digital distribution markets

Forbes magazine says Valve is market leader in digital distribution, selling around 50%-70% games of whole market.

Most important thing in succes of steam is the developer friendliness. Developers will get about 70% of profits when game is sold in steam. Now within traditional market this number is around just 30% and thats big reason why large group of developers are favouring Valve.

Also players favor Steam, it is exellent platform for games shopping, community creation and is constantly getting better.
