Consumers and game developers filed class actions claiming that Valve uses its monopoly
power to force game publishers to sell their games through the Steam Store and to pay
Valve supra-competitive fees that illegally increase the price consumers pay. The court
ruled that the consumer claims can only be pursued through individual arbitrations, but
the game developer claims can continue in court. Mason LLP represents thousands of Steam
gamers and is preparing their claims for arbitration. Each consumer may have suffered
damages as high as 60% of the purchase price of all games purchased during the last four
years. The name of the game developer case is Wolfire Games, LLC, et al. v. Valve Corporation,
No. 2:21-cv-00563, and it is in the United States District Court for the Western District of
Washington before Judge John C. Coughenour.
