I don't think that can be true. Steam takes a 30% cut, I believe, so they wouldn't be able to drop below that.

Plus, even still, I wouldn't hold it beyond a company like EA (wait, bad example) or Activision to pull their games from Steam in that case, because it "damages their IP" or some such nonsense.

But I'm basing this on assumptions.

That's true. Maybe he said he had to give publishers the same percentage and that made it okay. It's been awhile, and a cursory google search didn't really turn up anything either.


Yeah, all we can really do is speculate, but I'm pretty sure that there needs to be buy in on the deals if it's below that 30%. I think a few indies have mentioned this when discussing how drastically those deals increased their sales.
