As you know, the legal disputes between Apple and Epic are a hot topic in the industry today, as Epic criticizes the large profit margin that Apple takes for every purchase in its app store (which amounts to 30%), the only place where you can buy applications, which Apple does not agree with, apparently a more than fair figure.
Thus, moving it to what affects us the most, in recent trials it has been highlighted that said paradigm is not exclusive to AppleIf not, it is also one that applies to the main video game console stores:
In fact, Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft operate walled gardens or closed platform models similar to Apple’s, so the hardware, operating system, digital game store, and services are the sole proprietorship of the platform owner.
On top of that, it was mentioned a simile between the Apple and Nintendo platform, since both operate on devices that can be used portable with a closed ecosystem:
A final decision should be better informed about the impact of the walled garden model given the potential for major and serious ramifications for Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft and its video game platforms.
For now that’s how things are, and legal processes seem far from over. In any case, we will keep you informed with everything!
What do you think? Do you think that all this ends up having an impact on Nintendo? Do not hesitate to leave it in the comments!
