I DON'T CARE how much game developer % cut when I buy game. It is fxxking stupid for consumer to care about this. I as a gamer (consumer) only care if I can buy this game with a great price, software quality, post support, digital store features...
If a game developer cannot survive with 30% digital store cut, too bad, it is on the dev management. There are many dev don't make profit with 30% cut but there are also MANY can. Try go back to good old retail route and see how far can you go...
When you buy your Big Mac, Ford Mustang, Samsung TV do you fxxking care how much profit the food suppliers, automaker or Samsung actually made?? I would care about PRICE, store/sales quality and support instead. When fanboys come to game, they just throw their logic out the windows. This is why all these AAA dev made so much $$ off them by DLC, lootbox. Their favorite dev never wrong...
You can hate Valve for many things, but complain them taking 30% from dev is the most stupid.
The only complaint is people who would otherwise want to buy a Big Mac, Ford Mustang, or Samsung TV, but will ONLY buy it from Wal-Mart.
If the studios don't want to give a fucking storefront that had exactly nothing to do with building the game take MORE MONEY than the studio, then fuck yeah, they have every right to sell it elsewhere.
It's on the dough-headed consumers who refuse to buy the game that they otherwise want to buy, because they only shop at Wal-Mart.
Since when are gamers loyalty to a payment processor higher than the level designers, audio engineers, texture artists, writers, directors, coders, testers etc. etc. etc. who actually make the art we love?
Pretty fucked up if you ask me.
