How can there be more competition if you're not willing to use other digial distribution providers?

I just want one service with all my games in it.

So really you can't complain when a monopoly takes place, as your actions caused to create it.

There needs to be more competition?

You can't have your cake and eat it.

Even if one still only uses one service, that does mean one can't want there to be a competing service.
