If they lowered the prices of the microtransactions, then that's just a temporary sale to garner mindshare. Once Epic has succeeded in breaking free from royalty fees, they are bound to return the prices to their original values.
This entire situation is caused by Epic's deliberate breach of contract, but Epic is doing what they can to frame it as the fault of Apple. Why? Because Epic wants more money.
Yes, motivated by money.
So is apple btw.
This doesnt mean that Epic Games doesnt have a case though.
I don't see how they have a case Tbh.
Apple has very clear ToS which Epic would have had to agree to, Epic broke the ToS, Apple removed the app for the violation.
I feel like this lawsuit is going to be a waste of time and Epic will lose.
Fair enough if they attacked Apple's ToS and tried to get them to change them, I feel like the only way that is happening is with EU though, I genuinely believe the only way Apple will change is from an antitrust from EU.
This little fight though? Apple will live, they'll move on, they rolled in money before Fortnite, they'll continue to do after and I want Apple's policies to change but eh...I'm not sure this is the best way to do it.
