Quote: "We have 2000$ out of our mega game. Apple takes their profit,
we're left with 1400$, now TGC takes their magic 30%, we're left with 980$ Less than a half, but that's how it is with Tier 1."
So 2000 to 1400 means Apple took 30%
TGC takes 30% too, but of the remainder, so that means their 30% is less than Apple.
I am not comfortable with that scenerio.
If Apple gets 600 of my 2000, then I would want TGC to get 700 (more than Apple got) even if that means 50/50 with me after Apple's cut.
I know, that means I only end up with 35% of the total sales (700 of the 2000), but that is fine by me because it is still more than a third and more than Apple got from my App.
Yes, Apple may have nice hardware already holding a large market share but without the AppGameKit I would have no App to sell.
So, TGC is more important to me than Apple.
Especially when I think about the other platforms that AppGameKit allows me to market my app to.
TGC's AppGameKit is a neccessity for my mobile development, whereas Apple's platform is not.
In fact, I have no plans to develop for Apple's iPhones until they lift the proprietary hardware requirement for developers of their store!
That means I have to wait for TGC to offer publishing for tier 1, which won't happen until AppGameKit is solid as a british brick
but that is fine by me.
I will buy a MAC, but out of the profits from my App because I want to, not as an expense before I have made a dime because they are greedy enough to demand it.
Sorry, but that requirement really chaps my ... lips.
