Re: Wider ramifications

This isn't about playing an XBox game on a Playstation. This is about Epic not wanting Apple taking a 30% cut of every single transation in iOS versions of Epic's games, and Apple generally not allowing developers to use payment processors besides Apple, thus forcing all devs to use Apple for all payments.

This guarantees Apple get their cut, and Apple are using the size of their customer-base as leverage. Do it our way or miss out on hundreds of millions of potential users.

That's monopolistic behaviour and needs to be stamped out with extreme prejudice.
