Now Google’s getting somewhere.

Apparently, Epic Games Store head Steve Allison said under oath years ago that he believes Epic’s fee for its store is for access to Epic’s audience, not just for payment processing.

Google pounced on that. Steam charges a higher rev share for its larger audience and larger collection of games, doesn’t it? Google Play has a larger audience and more games, so shouldn’t it deserve a higher rev share? Shouldn’t Google deserve money for more than payment processing?

Allison found a way through it, but Google may have made its point.
