    Epic Games Store Users Will See Lower Game Prices Soon, Says Epic’s Tim Sweeney

    One of the big reasons developers love the Epic Games Store is that they get more of a cut of revenue from any game sales on it. Rather than losing 30% to the platform-holder, like they do with Steam (or PlayStation, or Xbox, or Nintendo, or Apple…), they lose only 12%. However, while this...

    Another step towards having an actual civilized online system on the Nintendo Switch.

    E3 Fortnite on Nintendo Switch Supports Voice Chat Directly On Console, Without Needing Phone App
