“Mr. Sweeney, you testified that you’re not seeking damages, but your company would make hundreds of millions of dollars from the arrangement you see on this screen, right?” asked Google’s lawyer, pointing to a V-Bucks purchase screen where users see a higher price to use Google Play Billing.
“I think it would be billions of dollars!” Sweeney said.
The reason you would love that is because you can set both of these prices, and as long as you set the Google Play price even a little bit higher, more people will choose Epic direct payment, right? And when that happens, Google gets nothing, right?
“That’s right,” said Sweeney.
He said it would be “awesome!” if he could avoid paying Google anything.
