Windows 10 Cloud to Crush Steam?

Tim Sweeney has a bit of a soft spot for Steam. Ok. He is Mr. Valve himself, but that aside he still has some pretty interesting insights about the Universal Windows Platform and how it is anticompetitive. He doesn't love the Windows 10 game mode either which will likely work only on UWP games purchased through the Microsoft Store. Now, he's raging at the Windows 10 Cloud platform that is designed to take on the Chromebook, but also has a few things that push steam out of the picture.

Tim explains further that he is not opposed to Windows having their own storefront. However, he opposes Microsoft using a locked-down platform. UWP games will not be available to download, use, sell, update, and conduct commerce with outside the Windows Store. Tim says that even if Microsoft offers an ability to sideload UWP applications, they will make this process prohibitively difficult.
