Steam now has a feature that lets you manually hide games you own on other platforms

If you play a lot of games, there's a good chance you own multiple different platforms, and have an extensive library of titles across your systems. The biggest PC storefront, Steam, seems to understand this, as they've just updated their store pages with a new feature that allows players to mark games as already owned on other platforms. Now, you can stop seeing constant advertisements or recommendations on Steam's home page for games you've already purchased and played on consoles, without putting the game in your ignore list. All you need to do for this is visit any game page on Steam, hover over the ignore tab, and check "played on another platform". Doing this will remove the specified game from your recommendations, but will use it to recommend you other, similar games you might not have tried yet.

Cool stuff. Since this is about steam and this news is not likely to hit the front page, the Epic Store will not have the ability to preload Borderlands 3, a feature Steam had for years and the fact that Epic claimed it will get more features like Steam. Just thought I'd mention as it's slightly relevant.

bah they need to fix the system itself before adding features. for instance i keep getting recommendation of games i don't want to see (like VR) even though i have specifically told steam to hide these games from view using the VR tag and also games in other languages!
