The Epic v Apple demo retains delivering attention-grabbing info, specially about specials and paying related to the Epic Video games Keep. We’ve uncovered, for illustration, that in 2019 and 2020 Epic promised about $1 billion in advances for exclusives, which includes $115 million for Borderlands 3. A new demo exhibit—which was evidently unveiled accidentally—shows that Epic presented Sony a $200 million progress to get very first-occasion PlayStation game titles on the Epic Online games Shop exclusively.

We will not know what form of deal Epic and Sony may perhaps have arrived at, as the doc in concern was created before any handshake. It says that Epic offered Sony “$200M MG+ for 4-6 titles” and was awaiting Sony’s reaction. “MG” definitely stands for “minimum promise,” which is how Epic refers to these exclusivity discounts: It can be the minimum amount profits Epic guarantees a game publisher will make with an Epic Games Retailer unique, whether or not their game actually sells sufficient to cover it.
