Wider ramifications

Setting aside discussion of the current state of the case, if Epic win, does that mean Sony will have to allow X-Box games on its devices, or Playstation games on Nintendo or X-Box? Let's go further: if I've bought an Epic game designed for iOS, should Apple be forced to give me an iPhone to play it? Or how about insisting they make a version that will run on my Commodore64?

Probably a step too far, even for left-pondian lawyers, but where does it stop? I may not be a fan of Apple but how far should other companies go to force them to change their products and services. Nobody is forcing iPhone owners to play Epic games, nor forcing Epic game players to use Apple devices.
