I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I don't need to be told WHY Epic is paying for exclusives. I get that part.
The part I don't get is why being upset about it isn't seen as reasonable. Or how it's somehow a "good thing" for consumers.
Another competitive store? Yeah that's a good thing for consumers for sure.
A store that pays to remove choices from the consumers? Nah.
Doesn't seem complicated to me.
