Facebook vs Steam – Gaming Industry to be Revolutionized soon. Yes, you heard me right. It’s Facebook vs Steam right now. But, the question/doubt running in your minds is “Why?“. We have a explicit answer for that. But, before we reveal you that just for further progress of reading this article, I wanna ask you that do you know about the Facebook Games Arcade Application exclusively designed for Facebook gamers by Facebook.
And we expected this thing of “Facebook vs Steam” a month back itself, when Facebook launched the Facebook Games Arcade Application for Facebook gamers. Check it out at Here -Déjà vu(Kinda Foreseeing) of DustMoon Team
Facebook announced collaboration with game engine Unity to design a outstanding desktop gaming platform recently. Facebook open-sourced the Unity SDK for all coders and developers to find errors, debug the bugs in it and to reinvent/redesign it further.
Unity Technologies, the largest global development platform for creating 2D, 3D, VR and AR games, Facebook are working together to expand Facebook’s set of game developer tools and services and give Unity developers new ways to reach and engage the millions of gamers on Facebook. As an extension of the existing relationship, Unity will integrate support for the Facebook platform, including an all-new PC gaming platform currently in development.

Quest of Facebook:
Facebook seems to be the “Alexander, the Great” sort and on a quest to conquer the entire Internet. It has its influence in Social Media, Messaging, Social Gaming, Feeds, Video and Image Sharing, Live Streaming, News, Commerce, Payments, Advertising, Marketing. All things you do online are going to be related to Facebook somehow in future. This may happen sooner or later.
Influence of a Few Companies over Gaming Industry = Problem to Facebook :
Facebook cannot tolerate the Influence of Steam, Nintendo in gaming industry. Similar to “YouTube Gaming”, Facebook may also launch “Facebook Gaming” video platform soon. It’s just our intuition.
However, Facebook made this Game Development thing be open for all the developers, till August 31. It strongly wants to take over the Gaming Industry. Mark Zuckerberg consulted many developers, analysts to take on this step very carefully.
Which literally means here might be a maximum chance of Threat to Valve’s Steam, iOS and Android Gaming platforms. Major Threat comes down to Steam Gaming platform itself.
As already Oculus is an acquisition of Facebook, which makes Gaming in VR be a good asset to Facebook’s entry into gaming industry.
Thus, Facebook and Unity Game Technologies join their hands to take over the Gaming Industry with a better understanding, larger user base and huge chance of leap in the industry.
