Epic Games sued Apple so they could make more money from Fortnite - Apple sued back because THEY wanted more money through the App Store. But is that the whole story? It's clearly not, because we made a whole video about it. This fight is a WAY bigger deal than a simple cash grab.

    I completely disagree. Apple works very hard to make sure malwares viruses etc stays out from their eco system and many out there have no idea how much malwares are constantly penetrating into either google or apple system applications every minute of the day. On top of that, my playground my rules is good because it benefits both parties in terms of profit and security. When others are happy, why not Epic and oh please stop with that "I'm trying to help others too" crap. Profit seekers always jump into an opportunity when they see one. Epic is just greedy. End of story.

    My concern would be like you said the security of apps distributed on 3rd party app stores. iOS and Android users have enjoyed the security in knowing the apps they are downloading are usually free of malware. Harvesting of personal data maybe not so much.

    Epics argument that side loading or alt app stores on google devices is entirely retarded. The only thing android does is warn you that malicious apps can install themselves when the setting is off. I use fdroid instead of google play. I have no issues. Epic are being whiney babies. I cannot wait till the fortnite fad dies.

  • Dr. Dodi

    This is a brilliant move from Epic. App store, Play Store, Steam and other platforms taking a 30% cut just for providing a digital product is way too much. Everyone is hating on EPIC game store, but they actually treat their devs better than the competition.

    Dont most companies take a %30 cut from app and or games from purchases

    If a developers fee is "taxed" 30% before they have to pay income tax in their country of origin, then Apple/Bezo/Sony etc should get taxed from those countries the end-customer/app-user sends currency from. As Apple claims it to be an invented industry, it thus makes it kinda infrastructural. As it is online and globally accessable, an US appointed judge should not have the final rule, but who could/should that be? UN? I don't know, but we can't say that TimBL didn't warn us back in the day ;-)

  • AtotehZ

    Apple products are not magic. Their smartphones are smartphones and their workstations are workstations. A different architecture and OS doesn't change the fact that it's a computer.

      You really don’t understand whats going on do you? I can very much tell you call yourself a gamer with pride. All you see are specs and fps and graphics. Everything Apple makes or does creates a great end-user experience many people love, and have no problem spending “$2k” (even though no iphone has ever gone over $1500 maxed out). So quit your bs and i hope you enjoyed my ted talk

    China has 48 percent share in Epic games. So basically it's chinese influence to file a lawsuit against apple and Google so that all the money directly goes into the chinese pockets. Also by not listing epic games app on app and play store means china has no interference of Apple and Google in regard of consumer privacy. They want all the money + also also slip into secure Apple devices via epic games app. World needs to be more aware.

  • Thabang Thamane

    If 30% is too much, some of our governments need to re-evaluate what they expect us to pay as tax on top of having to pay VAT. I heard that NFL players can loose up to 52% of the money when all is said and done. 30% is nothing on someone's platform tbh. Maybe create your own OS, hardware and do the markeingt so you can keep every cent🤔. Yes 30% is harsh but either create your platform or play by the rules. In fact, maybe don't release your app on their platform🤷.

    I think epic just wants to bring the epic games store to mobile and they want to be their own type of app store so they dont have to pay the 30 percent which is bs. They should still have to go through the app stores, but it sounds like a good idea to change the standard cut for digital app stores down to 25 percent instead of 30. I think that would be pretty fair.

  • Brad Greenwood

    One has to also remember that Tencent (who owns a portion of Epic) has an incentive to open ios to allow them to place their own app store on ios for the Chinese market. There is much more to this argument than people realise

    saying 30% is too high is stupid, epic should be suing Xbox and PlayStation as well because you can’t download apps from anywhere but the Microsoft store and PlayStation store and they charge 30% as well, at least Apple reduces that 30% after a year too. Epic complaining is them being greedy bitches who wanted attention.

  • AtarashiiSekai22

    You know that this isn't just Epic acting as some corporate technological Robin Hood, fighting against the evil Big Brother for locking down their appstores, Epic wants to form a monopoly themselves; through developer exclusive Epic deals and contracts, their own history with the Epic Store points in this direction.

    Apple were the first to create a service like the App Store that works as well as it does. You download the app, it's ready to be used. No need to install it, it's ready for use when the download completes. The vendor gets paid, the user is protected and vendors don't need to setup their own infrastructure for distributing their products. Distribution, payment, security are non-trivial efforts. Those things cost money. "It's just a digital product!" Sure it is. It still needs to be sent to your computer, right? If you don't charge for your app, it's distributed for free, which would definitely cost the creator real money to handle, certainly in volume. That doesn't mean that there can't be problems between certain vendors and Apple, there are examples aplenty. Overall Apple offer a great services its users can trust so that developers can see their products being used worldwide. That's not a small thing, it's a big thing. As for third parties building their own version of an app store and selling products: save yourself the trouble, I'm never getting it. I don't trust third parties to care as much about the security of Apple's eco system as Apple do.

  • Moosey

    If Epic Games wants to create there own "gaming" app store/play store like Google and Apple, why don't they create there own Phone OS/Computer OS rather then get involved in a bunch of lawsuits and much more with big tech giants? If Epic Games did that, and make it gamer focused, they may have a chance at something but you never know.

    Why doesn't Wallmart, Amazon and other retailers pay the 30% Appstore tax, whereas companies selling digital goods like Epic or Spotify must pay it? Where is the logic that if I buy a $1.500 TV on Amazon through their iOS app, there is no 30% Apptax by Apple, but if I buy a $10 Spotify subscription, Apple gets a 30% share?

    • Dule D.
      Dule D.

      @Abcde Fghij Exactly! Just imagine iOS Appstore without the major shopping apps. Apple would never allow that. But with digital goods Apple has the upper hand because those companies rely much more on Appstore customers as some of those apps and games are basically useless outside iOS/Android.
