IGN: Steam's 30% Cut Is Actually the Industry Standard

A breakdown of how much every major retailer takes from the sale of a game.

Yet somehow Epic is making it sound like Valve are the bad guys here when almost everywhere else it's a similar standard for the revenue cut.

Epics Games are just trying to lower the standard.

Tim got really butthurt over this article and went around looking for validation on Twitter and changed his bio.

LOL. Good. I want to see him trying to defend this. Thank you for telling me, you just made my night XD

Phil better have that check ready. Hideki expertise and knowledge would be a great asset to the Xbox team and can possibly bring growth in the Asia region.

Phil already canceled a Kamiya game(Scalebound) so we know he doesn't have the check ready. And that check couldn't keep Shinji Mikami there either...but maybe?

I’m still bitter about that cancellation. Even if it was in dev hell he could’ve given it to an internal studio.

Are you crazy???

That would be extremely disrespectful!

How sudden, I wonder what changed.

Maybe after the certain story choices and direction for Bayonetta 3 they can hopefully make it more like the first two games.

i've always felt platinum games lack of growth/failures can be traced back to kamiya. He seems like a very troublesome person to work with

DDlizzin4h ago

Good riddance. Never liked him as a person, but I admit some of his works were great.

Kamiya is the father of Devil May Cry, Bayonetta, and a number of other great titles. Admitting "some of his works were great" kind of undersells his portfolio, but that's just me.

That said, he's blocked me on Twitter. Twice. For asking legitimate, non -trolling questions, no less 🤣

His temper is volcanic, but I still like him. He's fun.
