“The service fee you see here is exactly the same fee that Epic pays in the Nintendo store, the Xbox store, the Steam store,” says Pomerantz. “All these stores charge a mega developer like Epic the same 30 percent fee.”

In the Epic v. Apple case, the judge agreed Apple deserved something for the platform — but not necessarily 30 percent. (Nobody can tell the jury that, though.)
