Glad to see a few rational voices have stepped forward to balance this ongoing spectacle with a bit of sanity. I'll only add that anyone (and there have been several) who boldly states "I don't care what the dev gets!" or similar is, with respect, rather shortsighted and selfish. It's not about compassion, but you do at least love games, don't you? That is why you're here, right? Rethink your asserted stance on a developer's cut and I'm sure the problem will become clear--even for you.
Where has Sweeney or anyone at Epic confirmed that the savings from the 88/12 split were going directly to the developer rather than the publisher (excluding indie devs of course)?
Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishfull thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms.
