MULTI Epic Games is now worth $17.3bn, ~6 times the net worth of Valve

Imagine thinking Apple is my favorite company when CerebralTiger has people in his group who defend them vehemently on social media. Yikes 🤣

So Epic will be paying millions up front, but the gateway has been opened for Apple to lose billions. Apple may have won the battle, but Epic won the war 🤣
This!

It's a major win not just for Epic but for every developer out there and that matters. I now want to see Google sweating and allowing devs external payment options as well.

Epic literally lost the war.

Apple is neither declared a monopoly, nor is the 30% cut reduced. Essentially, Epic also lost against Steam 🤣

Also, Epic doesn't even eat up the cost of payment processing on their own Store, and CerebralTiger sees this as a win for smaller 3rd party devs? 🤣

Imagine thinking Epic lost the war by losing $12 million in a battle, when Apple is prepping to lose much, much more. The amount of damage this will bring to Apple is incomparable to what Epic has to suffer 🤣

Heck, Fortnite made a measly 7% of its overall revenue on iOS 🤣

I didn't even mention the amount of money Epic "lost" 🤷‍♂️

Epic seems to want everyone but themselves to be declared a monopoly and also reduce 30% cut and they are failing miserably.

Typical of CerebralTiger to come up with a bootlicking response 🤣

Once again, CerebralTiger not addressing Epic's failing in the case. Seems like a touchy subject 🤷‍♂️

I mean, I never considered Apple or Steam a monopoly to begin with, and I don't agree with every single thing Epic fights for 🤷‍♂️

Regardless, an external payment option can potentially benefit both devs and consumers, so I fully support it. Such options should also be available on other platforms, including consoles.

P.S.
Spoiler: show

What about the consooomers that can't play Fortnite on iOS now because Epic purposely breached the contract? Not very beneficial to them is it? 🤷‍♂️

But Epic does want to be back on iOS. It's Apple who won't let them while appeals are ongoing. It's Epic's right to appeal, after all 🤷‍♂️
