1 - because they have friends
2 - because GoG are famous for chastising other people for doing things and then doing them anyway
I suspect that reality is, they’re in trouble in sales terms. Their long-standing ‘no Steam keys’ policy will be harming sales of newer games and there’s only so many copies of older games you can sell (esp as their competitors now have older games - and HD remakes of older games too)
I like GoG but the site feels dated - the recommendation lists etc. are nice but the community system is too basic with no public profiles and other ways of bringing players together.
That said tho - there’s not 1 thing in that video which other clients don’t already offer - they have nothing new here, it’s just “ticking the client box” and there’s so little info they could just be kidding us (again!)
