Does Sony have to share its PSNow revenue with PC manufacturers?
Does Netflix have to share its revenue with the manufacturers of all compatible devices?
Does Amazon have to share its Prime video revenue with the manufacturers of all compatible devices?
Does Blade have to share its "Shadow" streaming revenue with the manufacturers of all compatible devices?
Didn't Apple and Google take their shares of revenue from Pokemon Go?
Yeah, because that game is in the iOS appstore and the Google Play appstore and ain't streamed. The game is in the digital stores of Apple and Google (advertisement, visibility) and uses Apple's and Google's services (download traffic, updates, handling of all payments...).
With streaming Sony games are staying in the PSN, Micosoft games stay in the Xbox network/marketplace and Nintendo games stay in Nintendo's network/eShop).
The devices are ONLY for input of the controller data and output of the streaming data. Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo don't have to pay TV manufacturers for outputting console games on the TV-screen, do they?
