I don't think he's completely off.
There's a certain amount of PC users who refuse to play any JRPG because they view the genre as a set of stereotypes and nothing more, even though they're not necessarily true for every game.
Yet when one shows up on steam, they'll magically show a willingness to try it.
There's a bit of a double standard.
That said, I really, really, really hope, as a console gamer, that we don't see JRPGs going steam only.
That would suck.
And no, I'm not saying don't put them on steam, just don't make them exclusive.
I just don't like the general trend of everything going digital only.
