Writing on the AIR/Flash team blog yesterday, product manager Tom Nguyen discussed a couple of new ‘premium features’ for games developers in Flash Player 11.2 -- Stage3D hardware acceleration and domain memory -- which will be free for all applications published up to July 31, as well as for any game packaged using Adobe AIR. But he also announced a new monetisation scheme that will come into effect on August 1 and which will require developers to fork over 9% of any revenue their apps might make above $50,000.

This is a curious move from Adobe. It must be hard to see so many developers profit from Flash without that some of that profit coming back to the Adobe mothership. Still, I expect this will simply further alienate developers form Flash. 9% is a seriously high tax!

Wow this is an incredibly short sighted and stupid move by Adobe. With the lack of Flash support on big seller mobile devices from Apple and developers already leaving the platform in droves because how big of a market that Flash is unable to operate under this certainly isn't going to help reverse the slide. I'm currently working on a website project now and this is just one more reason out of many to not include Flash in the completed project.
