Welcome to episode 36 of the Grapplehook podcast.
The Epic and Apple lawsuit has begun and we're getting a peek behind the inner dealings of Epic Games.
We know how much Epic paid for each one of their "free games" on the Epic store, how much they paid for Borderlands 3 exclusivity and it's not small change!
We know that Sony didn't want crossplay to be a thing and had assumed that their palms had been greased.. Well, as a result of this case, we know this is now true but how much does it cost each developer and does there seem to be ways around it?
The Last of Us Part 2 is an incredible game, and now we know how Microsoft feel about it - Is it all singing and praising or are Microsoft critical?
Sony & Discord have announced a partnership as Sony becomes a minority shareholder. What does this mean for Discord and could we finally see a fully functional Discord app on consoles?
Microsoft have announced they are cutting the share they take from sales through their store down to 12% in line with Epic. Seeing as Steam is now left at charging 30% cuts, does this pressure mean they will waiver? Will Dan use the Microsoft store as a result of this change? (Probably not!)
Finally, Dan has a recommendation for the Grapplehook Spotlight - Have you played this game before?
