Submission + - Microsoft offer Windows Store devs 80% revenue cut (geek.com)

An anonymous reader writes: With the launch of the Windows Store alongside Windows 8 next year, Microsoft is changing the revenue split rules slightly. The default will still be a 30% cut (as announced in September) , but developers can increase their 70% cut to 80% if their app turns out to be very popular. Once an app has earned $25,000, Microsoft will automatically reduce their cut from each subsequent sale to 20%.

Microsoft is also undercutting Apple in terms of the how much a developer subscription costs. Companies will have to pay $99 every year, but individual developers get a cheaper $49 option.
