A US magistrate judge has ordered Valve to provide sales data to Apple in response to a subpoena issued amid Apple's continuing legal fight with Epic Games.
In addition to some aggregate sales data for the entirety of Steam, Valve will only have to provide specific, per-title pricing and sales data for "436 specific apps that are available on both Steam and the Epic Games Store," according to the order. That's a significant decrease from the 30,000+ titles Apple for which Apple originally requested data.
I thought it was dumb that Apple lawyers were demanding Valve's sales data because they need it for a case that Valve isn't even a part of for reasons. I thought it would be laughed at. Now the judge is ordering Valve to give their sales data up? What the FUUUU
