Huawei’s Tencent game off the shelves, the beginning of the new year, giants fight for the bonus system?

On the first day of the new year, the contradiction between Huawei and Tencent suddenly became public. On January 1, the reporter confirmed from Huawei that because Tencent game took the lead in unilaterally making major changes to the cooperation between the two sides, Huawei had to take Tencent game off the Huawei platform. Later, Tencent also issued a statement, saying that it was actively negotiating with Huawei and striving to recover as soon as possible. < / P > < p > in the early morning of new year’s day, Mr. Lin, a citizen, opened the app store of his Huawei nova6 mobile phone and planned to download Tencent’s King glory game. However, unexpectedly, the results of his search are only “King glory assistant” and other tools app, this game has “disappeared”. < / P > < p > in fact, just in the early morning of that day, the app of Huawei game center announced that Tencent game unilaterally made major changes to the cooperation between the two sides at 17:57 on December 31, 2020, which resulted in major obstacles to the continued cooperation between the two sides. After careful legal evaluation, Huawei had to suspend relevant cooperation in accordance with Tencent’s unilateral request and take Tencent games off the Huawei platform. < / P > < p > it is noteworthy that Huawei said in the announcement: “we admire Tencent’s achievements and absolute market position in the industry. Although we do not agree with it, we also understand Tencent’s requirements based on this.” < / P > < p > in fact, all this comes from the fact that Tencent game and Huawei mobile game platform failed to renew the contract as scheduled. In short, the two sides have not reached an agreement on the profit sharing ratio of game download. < / P > < p > before that, a large number of foreign game, video and music companies have bombarded the bonus system of Apple App store, making about 30% of the “Apple tax” a fact known to all. < / P > < p > at the same time, the tax system of domestic huami ov app store is also an open secret. With the increasing number of mobile phones owned by these manufacturers, in addition to the official website download channels of game manufacturers, the app stores of mobile phone manufacturers have also become an important channel for related game download. < / P > < p > according to media reports, in 2019, the gross profit rate of Xiaomi’s Internet service business was as high as 64.6%, while that of its smartphone business was only 7.2% in the same period. Obviously, game joint operation has become one of the important profit sources of mobile phone manufacturers. < / P > < p > since then, Tencent game has also issued an announcement, making it clear that due to the failure to renew the contract with Huawei mobile game platform as scheduled, Tencent game related products have been taken off the shelves by Huawei. At present, Tencent games is actively communicating and negotiating with Huawei mobile game platform, striving to recover as soon as possible. < / P > < p > there are no absolute friends and enemies in shopping malls, but only absolute interests. This time, the two giants launched a war on the bonus system, and it is still difficult to make a final conclusion. And whether this can change the balance of domestic related tax system, and ultimately whether it will be beneficial to consumers, obviously deserves more attention from all walks of life.
