The big deal is that microsoft is forcing themselves into a 30% cut from game developers revenues.

I didn't know that. Is that from the link, if not do you have one?

Yes I can see any long time windows developer diving off steep places over this. That is an extremely huge game changer. As said, I'll go elsewhere and there will be a new rise in OS from somewhere (google) eventually, if they try it.
What, did you think MS was going to offer the app store and certification free? LOL.
Its not specifically game devs, its ANY store app.
There's piles of other links to verify if you want to google it. Its also the same cut that apple takes from what I recall.

That 30% cut would be the ENTIRE reason they are doing this.
