You don’t need to follow closely to know that Apple and Epic Games are about to fight over Fortnite, the App Store, and Apple’s claim that it should take 30% of all transactions related to the two. Epic says it shouldn’t. Apple says it should. Which multibillion dollar company is right, I don’t know. But I do know that Epic is not as clean as CEO Tim Epic, nee Tim Sweeney would like to make it.

A story was posted yesterday stating that Epic will not allow Fortnite to enter Microsoft’s xCloud game streaming service. Joe Kreiner, vice president of business development at Epic, says that xCloud is a direct competitor to the PC. Which will be.

But Fortnite it is available on Nvidia’s GeForce Now game streaming service. Which then a competitor of the PC. So what is the difference?

The difference, in case you haven’t read between the lines here yet, is that Microsoft takes 30% of Epic’s cut every time someone buys Vbucks at Fortnite. Nvidia, on the other hand, does not.

The edge:

Fortnite is a free game on Xbox, and the only way to currently access the game on an iPhone is through Nvidia’s GeForce Now cloud gaming service. Epic Games partnered with Nvidia last year to launch Fortnite on GeForce Now and has helped Nvidia offer a number of other games from its PC game store on Nvidia’s cloud gaming service, where all revenue from the purchase of the original game or any application within the application. purchases go back to Epic rather than Nvidia. As far as Epic is concerned, the game simply runs on a PC.

Both GeForce Now and xCloud would give iOS gamers a way to play Fortnite and buy Vbucks. But only one gives Epic Games the full purchase price of 100%. And only one has been granted the rights to run Fortnite.

Epic Games, ladies and gentlemen.
