I'd rather pay an exorbitant up-front price than a damn % basis, much less a gross percent.
I'm a one guy development house with a couple of friends to provide music, and art...
I could never afford the upfront cost of UE4 under the old pricing model, and this still beats the shit out of MS taking 30% on the indie store titles, or iOS 30% take.

If I read the TOS correctly I think the first $3000 in sales aren't subject to the 5%, but I'll have to read that section again.
