Is this a sponsored piece? I'm baffled reading a line like this.And with a goal like that in mind, it's honestly hard to fault them
Not trying to defend the guy, but there are people, unlike us, who aren't aware of the truth of the matter, and those who just don't care - if they want a product bad enough, they'll get it from wherever.This is such a BS
that guy thinks we are all idiots
He could have done much better by putting all that money for selling games cheaper like 45-50$ instead of 60$
All he wants is to use the billions from fortnite to create a big platform by paying off developers so that when fortnite dies he can still make money
It's just predatory and anti consumer in every way and he knows that.
And on top of that the epic game store is such a bad software like with all that money at least invest in a decent software but then again why would he? He can just buy exclusives
All well and good, though, I frankly don't believe his stated reason.In April, Sweeney claimed the Epic Games Store would stop with the exclusives if Steam adopted its revenue model (Epic's split is 88%/12% in favor of developers, Steam's is 70/30).
I'd read somewhere(TPU, I think) that the cut Steam takes is proportional to sales volume. If a title hits it big, they also take a larger cut.
Its quite the opposite. The better sales a game does the lower the cut is:I'd read somewhere(TPU, I think) that the cut Steam takes is proportional to sales volume. If a title hits it big, they also take a larger cut.
It could be as little as 15% if sales were mediocre.
Don't do that. Epic needs to be able to pound on the 30% vs 12%. Also don't mention that EGS is still missing a ton of features Steam already has because reasons.
