Re royalties: Due to the common royalties against advance model, the dev would definitely always benefit from maximized publisher profits because the sooner the publisher breaks even, the sooner the royalties begin to flow.
You don't seem to have a very good understanding of the imbalance of the publisher/developer relationship in the gaming industry.
Most devs are paid up font on royalties in a prepay structure from the publisher, and quite often royalty payments from the actual game sales are nonexistent until the publisher recoups all of their advance on royalties to the developer.
Isn't that what he said?
unrelated to the above:
I dare y'all to total up how many posts in this thread are actually people as upset about EGS as claimed vs the people making that claim and saying stuff like #113 #114 and #116 etc.
