Epic is Suing Apple After Fortnite was Kicked from the App Store

Yo, where we dropping... a lawsuit?

Apple has removed Epic Games' Fortnite from the App Store after the studio implemented its own in-app payment system. This payment system bypasses Apple's payment system and thus avoids Apple 30% tax on purchases made.

Sorry Xbox One owners, you can't handle all those delicious frames. ...
 

Valve Cracks Down on Using VPNs to Buy Games Cheaper

This should hopefully lead to more fair regional pricing.

For several years now, users were able to make use of a loophole that allowed them to buy games for cheaper if purchased from certain regions.
